I am in the SAME BOAT! I signed up my neighbors boys ages 8 & 5. We live in Springfield, MO.
They had us turn in a wishlist from each child. It doesn’t specify how much is allowed for each child or give you a guideline. I turned in all the info (they wanted a great LEGO set each, some books & they both wanted a bicycle & a couple of board games) I thought maybe they would get 1 nice gift each-I figured that the bikes wouldn’t happen but it was worth a shot!
Last week on our local 5 o’clock news, they showed big cargo trucks unloading gifts to the T4T warehouse & things like bicycle’s, XBOX game consoles, board games, etc. Loads of amazing gifts, so I was hopeful!
When I showed up yesterday to get their presents, I was even more excited! They had gigantic black lawn trash bags overflowing with gifts! Yeahhh! I thought OMG! This is exciting & how am I going to carry something like that!
When they handed me our bag, it was a gigantic bag that had 7 $1 tree items in it! For both boys! I said “Is this for 2 children or is their another bag?” “This is it, Merry Christmas!” When I got to the car & opened it, I CRIED! It’s the toys you get & when you open them they fall apart! The poor Mom was so devastated too! She said they couldn’t do 1 nice gift for my babies? She said I feel bad enough that their father is M.I.A. & doesn’t help at all, & my job doesn’t pay more right now! But to give them these gifts knowing when they go to school, they are going to hear about how great Santa was to their peers!?
She was crying she’s so sick over it. I feel awful because I told her what a great organization it is! Maybe it is if your last name starts with the letter “A”! They give everything out based on last names. But it seems unfair? Why not spread around the good gifts mixed in with the $1 stuff? Just devastated & now I don’t know what to do for her!
T4T’s is a NOT in my book.
Reason of review: Bad quality.
