This one is personal...
Back when I was in college, a local radio host (Boogie D from 102jamz) would have what he called the "Stuff the Bus" campaign every Christmas. He worked with the USMC & their Toys for Tots program living & working in a bus until if was filled with toys for poor kids.
My classmates & I (Theatre Dept) decided to do some extra shows to raise money for toys. My Army buddy who won the lottery (Pretty sure I've mentioned it here but feel free to ask because I could live to be a million & I still won't be tired of telling that story) offered to match what we raised. When everything shook out, I was the only one left in town to do the shopping to pick up the toys.
I go to Toys R Us & since I'm trying to get as many toys as I can, I keep the price limit around $10 per figuring I can get cool poo & good variety. I fill up one cart pretty quick. I take it to the service desk, explain what I'm doing, & ask if they can just watch it since I'm gonna be here a while. The manger overhears, & offers to help me by dividing the job between the two of us.
While we are doing this word spreads, about why there are a bunch of carts near the front of the store. When I go to check out, they open a register for my 15 carts (It was about 2 weeks before Christmas, so they were fairly busy), & we do that. THEN they point to about 12 more carts. While we were shopping, people were talking & a bunch of people I never even saw brought toys for me to take to the bus.
They wouldn't all fit in my car, so a guy with a truck that has a camper shell offers to take the rest. We get there & Boogie & the Marines see all of the toys & ask me about the donation. I tell them & everyone chokes up. While they're unloading everything, a Marine notices the Army sticker in my window and says "Not bad Army!" Later after many trips & his realizing how many toys there were, his mouth works & he sniffles a bit. I ask "You alright there Staff Sgt.? "Shaddap Army... Oorah."
