The CSI Company and Kotobukiya USA donate toys to various Charities and Foundations to spread holiday cheer:
We believe that a strong and healthy community is ultimately the vision that we here at The CSI Company is building towards. It is with this core principle that we aim to participate with as many local community organizations and volunteering opportunities as time permits. We are truly humbled by the work of the Non-Profits and NGOs that we have had the fortune to help with through the years. On Saturday December 15th, The CSI Company in conjunction with Kotobukiya USA donated many cases of toys to the Toys For Tots Foundation; hosted by Goodyear Blimp near the Home Depot Center in Carson.
We would like to express our thanks to the organizers and we are grateful to have been able to add to the joy of many children through this holiday season.
Once again we give our warmest Thank You to the brave Service-persons who keep us save, Aryn Sieber; owner of The CSI Company felt truly honored to be able to spend some time with the noble Marines at this event and to assist with this immensely worthwhile cause.
50 cases of toys and figurines for adolescent kids (12-15 yrs.) were donated at this event.
Other stops The CSI Company made:
Cheers for Children received 27 cases of Star Wars figurines for kids ages 12-15. Mrs. Donna Dawick from Cheers for Children said that "the gifts were perfect"; noting that kids in that age group usually get overlooked as most people (unknowingly) give toys more suitable for younger kinds.
3 boxes of toys were donated with the help of Fire Station 11 Long Beach.
Firefighter Hopper's responded; "Thank you for your generous donation to the Spark of Love toy drive. The gifts you delivered to Fire Station 11 today will be the highlight of Christmas for a family in need this holiday season. Thanks again for your selflessness generosity.", Firefighter Hopper, 11A
4 boxes of toys were donated to North Long Beach Christian Fellowship, 5640 Orange Ave. Long Beach Ca 90805, and will be distributed by Paster Walter M. Carter.

Nestled below the mountains that shelter Big Bear Lake, lies a city that has embarked on an ambitious plan to make as much of its territory as energy efficient as possible. As part of a massive effort to rethink and revamp an entire city, San Bernardino has embarked on a plan to improve everything it can, within city limits.
In the spirit of an old American tradition, one community shows that neighborliness has not died out. Dedicated people are trying to strengthen their city by helping create work for people in need of jobs and Energy efficient remodeling proves to be a valuable tool for rebuilding homes, communities, and the economy.

In late March, Peter Voser, CEO of Dutch Shell, said that alternative energy is not likely to be the leading industry for growing energy demands. While many experts predict that energy demand will double by 2050, Voser expects that if people do not start conserving energy that number will triple as demand coming from China and India adds strain to the system.
