Adult Toy Store Holds Kid Toy Drive With, Uh, Interesting IncentivesMeredith Carroll
Major props to any business or organization that holds toy drives for kids over the holidays. After all, the thought of a child with no gifts at Christmas can be heartbreaking.
That being said, one specific store in Alabama seems an unlikely candidate to try and save the children.
Pleasures, an “adult” toy store, is holding a charity drive for Toys for Tots and Save the Ta-Tas this Christmas season, according to The Huffington Post. And if you give a little, you get a little.
As in, give a child’s toy, receive a complimentary adult toy from a goody bag of sorts. The goody bag? It’s full of adult toys, like a vibrating bullets and edible body paint. Pleasures will also donate $1 to the Save the Ta-Tas organization in your name.
The store’s owner, Sherri Williams, says she’s a long-time supporter of breast cancer research, and she also likes the idea of helping kids in need.
“We are helping children, and saving the breasts that feed them,” said Williams.
Toys for Tots, however, isn’t thrilled with the contributions from Pleasures, calling their involvement “inappropriate.” One of the foundation’s employees told The Huffington Post they should not be advertised in an adult store.
So far Pleasures has received lots of toys, including several bicycles, even though no one under the age of 18 is permitted in the store.
The toy drive runs through Dec. 15. And tomorrow, Dec. 3, local Huntsville radio station 95.1 will be broadcasting live from the store, where donors can pose for holiday photos with Dirty Santa or Sexy Mrs. Claus.
Do you support Pleasures giving back to kids and breast cancer charities? Or do you think they should just make a monetary donation and keep their chest full of pleasures to themselves?
