Peepshow star Holly Madison went on a Santa Claus-sized shopping spree with her own credit card -- all to benefit her Holly Jolly Christmas Toy Drive with Lotus Broadcasting in Las Vegas for Toys for Tots and The Salvation Army.
But she also found time to pick up baby gifts for The Girls Next Door co-star Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett’s new baby boy Hank Baskett IV, who was born Friday morning in Indianapolis, where Hank plays for the undefeated Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts.
Leading lens lady Denise Truscello was on the scene at Target for our photo gallery. Contributing photographer Erik Kabik, who shot for our gallery, as well, told me: “I tagged along with Holly as she went shopping for Toys for Tots. She piled up two carts of toys at each store and along the way also stopped for photos with fans.
Holly also found some great baby presents for Hank and Kendra’s new baby, including a Nerf football and football-shaped piggy bank for Hank the Fourth.”
Holly has four more gift donation events between now and Christmas that she will attend for her debut holiday toy drive. “People are being so nice, generous and supportive,” she told me.
“We have already exceeded our expectations, so by the time we get to Christmas, we will be able to donate far more than we ever thought possible. It’s wonderful. I love this time of the year, and to be able to do so much good for others less fortunate is awesome. That is the spirit of Christmas, after all.”
