BIG TOYS & Little Toys… from The Daily Driver Project

December has begun and the Toy Drive Car Shows have started too…

Car people give back a lot. A whole lot.

So when we get to the month of December, it’s all about Toy Drives. Toy Drives are all over SoCal for the whole month and Hot Rodders fill their vehicles (their big toys) to the brim with fantastic toys for kids in need.

This is what I love about being part of the automotive community. They are always giving back. All year long, they give back for many different causes and it’s not always money. And in the case of December… it’s toys. It’s just being able to help out and can be as simple as volunteering your time. Just being able to do what you can do.

The Toy Drives that happen in SoCal range from simple and small to huge. But huge may not even qualify for the size I’m talking about as one car show fills semi truckloads of toys. Just massive amounts of joy for kids that may be getting nothing for the holidays.

So, as December goes on… get out, help out, reach out. Find ways to give back.

And as always, keep that heart big my fellow Hot Rodders.
