Finding a parking lot sold out at Christmas is a hassle, but not having any Christmas presents is hard on both parents and children. If we can help even a small number of families, it will be worthwhile.
Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) December 15, 2009
While many families are having trouble affording holiday presents this year, AboutAirportParking.com, an online airport parking reservation site, announced today that it would use the busy holiday travel season to help Toys for Tots.
Between now and the end of the year, as families across the country make travel plans for the Holidays, each airport parking reservation made through http://www.AboutAirportParking.com/ToysForTots will result in a $5 donation to Toys for Tots, a leading foundation fulfilling the Christmas holiday dream of millions of our nation's neediest children.
"People come to our site for a convenient way to get great deals on airport parking. Now, they can go to http://www.AboutAirportParking.com/ToysForTots for an easy way to make their parking reservation while, at the same time, help brighten a child's Christmas," said Erik Budde, CEO of AboutAirportParking.com. A report Tuesday from Gallup states that consumer spending was down 21% from 2008. With unemployment remaining high, more families will be struggling to give gifts this year.
In its 62 year history, the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program has distributed more than 400 million toys to over 188 million needy children. "Finding a parking lot sold out at Christmas is a hassle, but not having any Christmas presents is hard on both parents and children. If we can help even a small number of families, it will be worthwhile," said Budde. "Toys for Tots is very pleased to welcome AboutAirportParking.com on board the Toys for Tots Team this year," said retired Marine Major Bill Grein, vice president of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. "With their help we will be able to reach many more children than we would otherwise be able to do."
