'That's what Christmas is all about,': Newlyweds take guests to Orlando Target to shop for kids in need

A couple's tradition of giving to others every year extended to their wedding day, with their guests taking part.

Brad and Jessica Bond's love story starts with their first date seven years ago.

Brad Bond said he wanted to do something special, because he knew since then that she was the one.

"So we pulled in the parking lot of Target," Brad Bond said. "I explained my parents have always made Christmas special for me."

"It's something that has been a tradition for us, like, ever since we started dating," Jessica Bond said.

The newlyweds invited their entire wedding party to Target on Saturday to shop for the Toys for Tots program.

1. Great idea for kids too

Every Christmas our kids pack up a big box of clothes and toys they have grown out of, and take it to an orphanage.

We have friends who don't accept gifts for their kids at their birthday parties - instead everyone is asked to bring a donation to the children's home.

2. I'm poor, but I gave to the Toys for Tots program this year and have in past years.

What I do is to look for baby dolls that minorities, dolls of color.
I've thought that maybe there is a little girl who would like to have a baby doll that looks like her, but it's not always easy to find them where I live. So I went on Amazon and bought a black doll, a Hispanic one, and an oriental one. They were given out yesterday and I'll never know who got them, but I hope it made some little girls, toddlers, very happy.

3. That is beautiful.

How kind and thoughtful!
Speaking on behalf of the universe: thank you, so very much.
