Anyone who visits the Spokeo office knows that we’re a spirited group. From themed fridays (proof here) to upcoming ugly sweater parties, we love to get into the full-fledged spirit of things. And that includes the spirit of giving! We opted to support the local “Spark of Love” toy drive, a program driven by KABC and the Southern California Firefighters benefiting the underserved children and teens of Los Angeles counties.
We originally tried to stick to toys that would inspire future engineers (puzzles, blocks, etc.), but at the end of the day, engineers are motivated in a variety of ways and who’s to say an oversized Scooby Doo isn’t going to influence the next generation of programmers?
Yesterday, we trekked our huge box of toys (along with some delicious donuts!) to local Pasadena Fire Station 31 and were delighted to shake hands with the heros who are here to protect us. We received the friendliest of smiles and even got to tour their trucks and engines.

Spark of Love is still accepting toys until December 24th. Just take your new toys or teen accessories (see here) to a local fire station and make smiles happen.
Happy Holidays from Spokeo!
