AJ's Kids Crane

San Diego's biggest toy drive is back! AJ from Sunny 98.1 is getting ready to live in a crane while he collects toys for the kids at Rady Children's Hospital and he needs your help!

Since 2001, AJ has been taking to the crane - eating, sleeping and living 30-feet aloft in the Ikea Mission Valley parking lot while waiting for donations to roll in.

But it's much more than a toy drive. Each day of AJ's Kids Crane is marked by fun events for the whole family to enjoy, including cosplay and ticket giveaways! Admission to the Crane is a donation of one, new, unused toy per person.
