PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - Christmas is a month and a half away and many kids won't be with their families this holiday season.

One business in Paragould said they are hoping to help out those children who will not be spending Christmas with their parents.

InkFlikted Tattoos is hosting a toy drive for Greene County Foster kids. They said people who bring in a new, unwrapped $10 toy, will receive a $20 discount on a tattoo. All tattoos at Inkflikted are from $40 and up. For people who don't bring in toys, Inkflikted will still arrange some sort of discount for your tattoos.

Kimberly Bogard coordinated the drive and said it means a lot to her. "Well I was a foster care child when I was 12 and I was in there for six months," said Bogard. "It wasn't during Christmas time, but I know what it was to be without my family. That really motivated me to do the toy drive this year".

The drive will go on until December 15.

Bogard said she hopes Region 8 takes the initiative to help the foster kids and teens.

If you are not a fan of tattoos you can still help the foster kids out by donating at Inkflikted.

Inkflikted Tattoos is located behind Burger King in Paragould at 403 N. 23rd street.
