Donate a toy, get money for a tattooPermanent Expressions Tattoo Studio partners with Toys for Tots
Belfast — Toys for Tots provides donation boxes to local business owners so customers may donate toys for Christmas gifts for children in need. Joshua Ard, owner of Permanent Expressions Tattoo Studio, decided a donation box wasn’t enough and took it upon himself to do more to help.
Permanent Expressions Tattoo Studio is working with Toys for Tots to help maximize the program’s impact by giving customers tattoo gift certificates in exchange for new toys donated to the organization. Anyone who comes to Permanent Expressions to donate will receive a gift certificate double the value of any toy $20 or less. Donate a $15 toy, get a $30 shop credit.
“I grew up in Waldo County and know first hand how many kids in the area regularly go without,” says Josh Ard, the shop owner, “The shop is now beginning the third year of charity work with Toys for Tots and is looking forward to a great holiday season. Last year, of all the pick-up locations in Waldo County, we had the most toys donated. This is something we take a lot of pride in here at Permanent Expressions.”
