From Wedding Aisle to Toy Aisle

December 19, 2018

To Inspire:

If you happened to see Monday night’s NBC News with Lester Holt, you saw an inspiring story on Brad and Jessica Bond.  The Utah couple had just finished their wedding vows and been introduced to their guests as Mr. and Mrs. Bond when they surprised everyone by handing out $10 gift cards to Target and then invited everyone to follow them to the nearby Target store where all were invited to use the cards to purchase toys for the Toys for Tots program.

Brad and Jessica’s first date several years ago was an evening at Target buying gifts for Toys for Tots  – a tradition they’ve kept each year since.  So perhaps it was not all that surprising that rather than receive gifts from their wedding guests, they gave each of them a $10 dollar gift card with an invitation to head over to the local Target.

Children that otherwise would have received very little on Christmas Day will now have smiles on their faces.  We bet Brad, Jessica and their guests will as well. Two aisles in one day – a wedding aisle and a Target store aisle.

Way to go Brad and Jessica!
