gi_105656_tweet4toys1November 23, 2011, Tulsa, OK – Tulsa's nationally recognized social media driven toy drive kicked off with a Tweetup at Top That! Pizza.

#Tweet4Toys is a toy drive sponsored by Social Media Tulsa, benefitting The Salvation Army in Tulsa (@SalArmyTulsa) by collecting toys for Tulsa's forgotten angels.

Every year, The Salvation Army helps thousands of families during the holidays. Thanks to the generosity of so many Tulsans, most of the angels are adopted from the Angel Trees, but there are always some that do not get their holiday wishes fulfilled. These forgotten angels are still left on the trees when it is time to give out gifts. Social Media Tulsa is hosting #Tweet4Toys to collect toys that will be used to ensure that every forgotten angel receives something special this Christmas.

The goal for Tweet4Toys this year is to collect more toys. To reach that goal, Social Media Tulsa is hosting a series of Meetups and Tweetups.

The first Tweet4Toys #Eatuptweetup was held at the all new restaurant, Top That! Pizza at 8393 South Memorial Dr. on November 18, 2011. Tulsa’s social media enthusiasts filled three boxes with donated toys, enjoyed the create-your-own personal pizza experience, and marveled at the Freestyle Coca-Cola machine.

"Top That! Pizza is one of Tulsa's best new restaurants to take kids. It's really great to have places like this that the whole family can enjoy," said #SMTulsa member, Tyson Caldwell aka Tulsa Food Guy. "The best part about #Tweet4Toys for me was teaching my four-year-old boy about giving and sharing during the holidays…especially to those less fortunate than he."

In addition to the events, there are more opportunities to donate toys. Tulsans can drop off a Toy at one of the Tweet4Toys drop off locations,host an office, salon, church, or family toy drive. Tulsa’s Eco Green Mobile Detailing will pick them up.

People not in the Tulsa area can donate via The Salvation Army’s mobile giving. Text the words “Joy Toy” to 85944. (Include the space) to donate $10.
