I was just going with an idea here....I've emailed Ducati North America and this site admin about getting together and purchasing a bunch of Ducati specific Maisto toys and giving them out either through Toys for Tots or hospitals and the like.
What do you guys think?
Maybe we can buy direct from Maisto or get WalMart to help us out?
This could be big and a lot of fun.
Think of all the smiles from our future motorcycle riders!
Let me know what you think...
Here's what I sent off to Ducati NA:
I'm a member of several online forums and absolutely love my Hypermotard. This is my second Ducati and I'm very happy to be part of the family.
I have over the years collected many of the Maisto toy motorcycles and have all of the Ducati models. Recently, I started giving away some of these to kids that I come in contact with and thought of a fun way to make a lot of kids happy this year.
Around the Christmas season, I was thinking of having a toy drive for Toys for Tots or some other group. I'm thinking of trying to get some of us from www.Ducati.ms
to donate money to purchase a large amount of maisto motorcyle models, specifically Ducati models, to give to this group or individuals.
Would this be something that Ducati North America would be interested in participating in? I may approach ProItalia, which is my local Ducati dealer, to gauge their interest as well.
Please contact me if there is any interest.
Thank you for forwarding this to an appropriate department.
