Tokyoflash Treasure Hunt #7 Winner, and a Little Charity

We've picked the winner for last week's Tokyoflash Treasure Hunt on Neatorama at random (Answer page here). Congratulations to bailey1121 who won a gorgeous Tokyoflash I nfection watch in silver.

In the 500+ entries that we got, one really stood out: GrouchieGrumbles (entry #128) told us that if he/she should win, then we should just donate the prize to Toys for Tots charity. A Neatorama reader who prefers only to be called "a retired US Navy radioman" pointed this out to me.

Both of us are touched at the gesture, so we've decided to both donate $100 each to Toys for Tots, in honor of GrouchieGrumbles (whoever he is). This Christmas, times are tough - so Toys for Tots and other charities need our help more than ever. I'd like to invite you go open your heart (and wallet) and donate a little something.

Thank you to GrouchieGrumbles for his kind offer, to the anonymous Neatorama reader who contacted me about it, and lastly, to all of you who have done your parts in helping the less fortunate this holiday season.

"Shhhh SparkS, you’ll ruin my street cred!!!!

Got you covered. I simply wanted you to know some of us see through it. GGG You know, actions speak louder than words.

"The ID came from my tendency to be a bit cynical, to the point of being considered Grouchy."

Heck, you have a way to to be on my level. I have taken curmudgeonly to new heights! Truth be known
I may come across as brash some places, like here, but in fact I am a huge teddy bear.

" hehe Truth be known, I am actually quite the jokester!"

We'll get along fine! I can be extremely sarcastic and I'm sure a lot of my attempts at humor go no where. Oh well, doesn't stop me. GGGG

Oh yes, I did, and the pleasure was all mine sir.

"that is really not a cool watch I’ve a couple of watches like that but it’s just weird that someone would create something like that to make yourself feel complicated when you just want to know what time it is."

I agree 100%! I am a true gadget nut but a lot of their watches seem very hard to use. I guess it's a price that's paid for coolness. For me when I look at a watch I want to know the time. Not need a college degree to operate the thing. There goes my chances of ever winning a contest.

Been using this nickname for years... Even got me in trouble with a vendor(my email has the nickname in there as well). When we called to report an item was broken in shipping, he was immediately nasty thinking we were trying to take advantage of him.. hehe Once we figured out the root of his nastiness, we explained the nickname, and now that vendor is a good friend who we buy things from constantly...

* I say *we*, cause the wife and me share that email account.

Enough blathering incessantly from me.... If you made a donation to ANY charity... THANK YOU!!!!!

GG, Truth be known according to Alex's preamble above it was your post that started it so the thanks go to you sir. If wrong on the gender my apology.

Oh, almost forgot, I don't know who you are trying
to kid with your ID. Your request was far from grouchy.

A tip of the hat to you.
