Outlands Toys for Tots Challenge Totals

Master Adam Stedefast of the Kingdom of the Outlands reports on this year's Toys for Tots Challenge and the amazing number of toys collected for charity in that Kingdom.

Master Adam writes:

Unto the supremely generous populace of the Outlands does Master Adam Stedefast send warm greetings during these days of winter approaching WAR.

Sir Raymond the Quiet, Baron al-Barran, held the first Outlands Toys for Tots Tournament many years ago in al-Barran. The tournament flourished there for years, until a previous reign of Artan and Aziza, King and Queen of the Outlands, when Their Royal Majesties allowed that a challenge should be sent throughout the kingdom to see exactly how many toys the Outlands could raise.

Since that time, toy raising activities have been held from the north to the south and from the east to the west of this great kingdom. The Outlands Toy Challenge has expanded to include toys and children's books raised, not just for the Toys for Tots Program, but other programs including the Salvation Army, hospitals and other worthies.

The results for 2006 are:

  • Barony of Caerthe: 1,121
  • Barony of al-Barran: 1,409
  • Barony of Dragonsspine: 182
  • Barony of the Citadel of the Southern Pass: 1,433
  • Barony of Caer Galen: 128
  • Barony of Fontaine dan Sable: 15,446
  • Shire of Gleann Medonach: 48
  • Shire of Rio de las Animas: 107
TOTAL: 19,874

If there are any group totals I do not have, please let me know.

The Outlands has taken this challenge and extended it to the Known World. The Outlands Crown has sponsored and supported the Known World Toy Challenge and made presentations of such at Estrella War Grand Court. Their Royal Majesties have allowed that this will occur again at the upcoming WAR.

By that time, I will have the totals of the other kingdoms and will post them here. If you are moved by these words and the generosity of the Outlands, it is not too early to think about plans for next year. Groups are not required to only host events at a particular time of year. I have seen some extremely creative methods of TOYMONGERING and look forward to seeing more.

Showing children what charity looks like will change the world.

Thank you for all you do.
