Trade a toy for new ink: Kelowna tattoo shop holding holiday toy drive on Sunday

There’s no shortage of fundraising efforts around the holiday season, many with a focus on collecting toys for children in need.

A Kelowna tattoo shop is getting in on those charitable efforts with a toy drive that will certainly appeal to those looking to get some new ink.

Don’t Look Down tattoo shop in downtown Kelowna will be holding their special toy drive from 11 am until 7 pm on Sunday, Dec. 10.

The unique twist is that participants can bring in a new, unwrapped toy and $25 to donate to the cause and get themselves a new tattoo in exchange.
