Well the time frame for entering Joes for Tots is now over, but that doesn’t mean that we’re all done with checking out what the sponsors are up to.

Yeah, I know Christmas is over. There are still awesomeness to be had with our sponsors though and believe it or not, Toys For Tots still needs help. Today’s Sponsorship Spotlight is a bit different considering our sponsor today is not a store, rather its a super awesome blog. Maybe not *as* super awesome as PoeGhostal.com, but pretty super awesome in it’s own right.
I started reading Articulated Discussion since almost its inception and I’ve been hooked ever since. That’s why I’m happy that AD decided to sponsor the Joes For Tots contest with the addition of a Back to the Future electronic DeLorean. What else can you expect from them? Hit the more tag to find out!

Joes for Tots entries are still coming in, but if you haven’t donated yet there is still plenty of time to help out. While many places are closed for actual toy donations, you can still donate even a small amount online. Aside from helping someone out and possibly getting a nice bonus, remember Poe offered up a sweet unmasked Dark Knight figure as well. Remember, you have until the 31st of December to submit your entry!
Anyway, I thought I’d share a few more of the photo entries I’ve received. This time the theme is pulling some of the entries that qualify as, “The Ladies of Joes For Tots.”

If you haven’t entered Joes For Tots yet, you’re simply crazy. With all the great stuff from sponsors like Sideshow Collectibles (who donated a 12″ Cobra Commander), how could you not enter? Why don’t we check out some of the other cool stuff that Sideshow has to offer why we reflect on our sanity:
Don’t know what to get that nerd that has everything? Sideshow’s got a guide to try to help you out. I can give you a hint right now, though. Nothing from Bath and Body Works.

I’m sure you’re getting tired of my pleas for you to give to Toys For Tots. Well tough, because today I have a super awesome announcement that will have you pooping your pants with excitement if you live in Southern California (and even if you don’t, it’s still pretty neat). Loyal Poe Ghostal reader AmericanHyena is a magician who has offered up free tickets to the Magic Castle to anyone who enters Joes for Tots who live in the Southern California area. What is the Magic Castle? Why, it’s a super cool restaurant/bar in Hollywood, California that just happens to be the private clubhouse for the International Academy of Magical Arts. The only way to get in is to be invited by a member! I wish I lived in California still, I’d be all over this.
If you’ve already entered and you live in Southern California, just send me an email at email@example.com.
Today I’d like to share some pics of entries we had from awesome people donating to Toys For Tots. If you’ve been living under a rock, there’s a contest here where you can win lots of great prizes for giving to the charity. Today I’ve decided to share a couple of contestants being super awesome to encourage you to send in your pics:
Now that’s a lot of toys!

Well now that the official Joes for Tots contest announcement has been made, I’m hoping you all are keeping it in the back of your minds when you start your holiday shopping this year (be it Christmas or one of those crazy snake worshiping ones). I’ll be hitting you up with reminders as well as sending out notices around the web to let everyone in on this great chance to try to selfishly win things for helping kids, but I can’t do it all on my own. I need some help!
