  6. Valerie Shane

    I have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and due to my medical, we are having a hard time giving our son and family a Christmas. I would use it to make my son and his cousins a great Christmas. Not only them, but other families in need.

  7. I would give them to my foster children I just adopted and make them over the moon excited!

  8. God bless you and this fantastic sweepstakes! So very many children in this world that would be thrilled to receive even one of these gifts, and lots of local places where I live to donate to. What a thrill it would be for my 15 year old grandson and I to deliver these gifts to others, and for him to experience in the great joy of those receiving these gifts. Thank you greatly for this possibility.

  17. I think it is a cool contest. We have 9 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren, the 14th should be arriving today. We know how expensive toys can be so we think this is an amazing contest, and just in time for Christmas. Thank you for doing this.

  18. marilyn blair

    Rules are fair, and the prize is amazing. I’d give first picks to a boy in Children’s Hospital, a 7 year old friend of the family that was just in a terrible car crash, caused by a drunk driver. Our little friend does not have any feeling in his legs and has been given only 20% chance of walking. But we want to help him recover fully and think this prize would help brighten his days while he shows the doctors that he can beat those odds. Other toys would be shared with Children’s Services for Christmas, and Toys for Tots.

  19. Cheri Loveland

    Rules are fair and Thank you for doing this giveaway I only have 2 grandchildren so they don’t need much but we live in a city with 3 big hospitals, one being a Shriners so a lot of toys would go there. Actually a few of the games may go to the Meals on Wheels where many homeless gather for a hot meal at the walk in center – they may enjoy a quick game before going back out in the weather.

  20. terri bayird

  24. Sandy Townsend

    I have 10 grandchildren and on a fixed income. So this would be a blessing for a wonderful Christmas! Best wishes and good luck to everyone. 🎄🎁

  27. Annemarie LaBute

    What a Wonderful Opportunity…as if I would be a winner, I would Charish every moment while probably spending a month going happily around town personally Gifting each toy to an individual child or children who I come across on my Beautiful Journey around Detroit Michigan 😊, I will have to always carry at least 6 toys in a Jumbo purse while on my loving Adventure. (Just incase I were to stumble across a group of Children or Large Family with many children) I wouldn’t want any jealousy or arguments, and while gifting, I will definitely ask all of the children to regift the toy to another friend or child when they are finished playing with it… ( could be a week or a year : ) just to continue the pay it forward process. I would be like a little blond Santa Claus named Annemarie 😊 Always going back to my Trunk in my Car or to my Home refilling my Jumbo Purse! 😄 lol …U R DOING A GREAT DEED within Prosperity of Humanity and Love For Our Children of the World with this GIVEAWAY! Sooo Very Greatful, Blessed and Thankful for You! 😊 🎀 😊 Always With Love 💛 Annemarie 😊
