Help the Marines Help Kids

My good friend and fellow blogger JM Bell sent this out in an email, not to mention his blog post on the subject.

The United States Marine Corps Reserve in Utah is in dire need of
volunteers to help out with this year's annual US Marine Corps Reserve
Toys for Tots Campaign.

90% of the Marine force in Utah is busy this holiday season. 180
Marines currently deployed in Iraq and another 100 busy training for
their 2008 deployment means that there are not enough Marines in Utah
to pick up and distribute toys.

The Marines are very short staffed for the distribution weeks and need
your help. They especially need some people that speak Spanish to
assist with translation.

Round up your family and friends and join the US Marines for a grand
holiday experience.

Please, cut and paste this post and email to anyone you know who can
make the time to do a little with the men and women who do so much.
