WE’RE TAME BUT NOT LAME!
Tits Buying Toys for Tots returns for the 12th year!!!
Yeah, you can feel warm and fuzzy by buying the kilts and boobies calendars through the DH3…. but here’s the opportunity to truly atone for the sins committed by the hash all year long by helping out needy families this holiday season!
TBTfT is a hash *event*. We fundraise for a family (or several families) that we adopt through the Denver Rescue Mission, then have a TRAIL near a major retailer, BUY the necessities and things from the wish lists for the families, DRINK and WRAP said goodies, and send representatives to deliver the presents just before Christmas.
LAST year, we raised over $1500. We were able to buy clothes, necessities, and some fun stuff for 10 kids, $50 gift cards for 4 adults, toiletries, and supermarket gift cards for the families.
NEW for 2014:
** Wrapping party after trail and shopping will be at a nearby restaurant, so you can spread out on real tables to wrap!
** Knees Up now has Paypal! So now you can donate in person with cash at upcoming hashes, mail Knees Up a check, OR go through Paypal to use debit or credit. NO EXCUSES! : ) Details for donation forthcoming.
EVENT DATE: Saturday, December 13 (time TBD); yes, you can PRELUBE for Hash of Lights (which is on Sunday the 14th).
LIKELY START, trail, and shopping LOCATION: Target near Kipling and I-70.
HOW ELSE CAN HOUNDS HELP?? If you are short on cash but big in heart, we need ELVES to help out with:
** Collecting donations at upcoming front range hashes
** Devising a 5K-ish trail
** Donating ribbons, boxes, tissue paper, tape, etc. to the wrapping efforts (not paper, as Knees Up has a coordination system so we don’t mix up presents for different families)
** Show up for the shopping or wrapping even if you can’t make it to trail
** Be the Santa and deliver the presents!
Specifics to come… On-On to TBTfT
