FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KHBS/CNN) - Lap dances aren't something you usually associate with Christmas, but an Arkansas strip club is hoping to change that and help needy kids for the holiday.

"We're having a campaign for the month of December called Toys for Tatas," said Erica Ponder, manager of Platinum Cabaret.

Yes, you saw correctly. It's a toy drive at a gentleman's club and the workers are offering their unique set of skills as an incentive.

"If you come in and bring you bring a toy to donate for our little toy drive we're having, then we're gonna give you two for one lap dances for as many toys as you bring," said Ponder.

Simply put, it's an R-rated version of Toys for Tots, and believe it or not, that's exactly where the donated toys will end up.

KHBS-TV did some checking and discovered the guy who actually started Toys for Tots had no idea about this spin on the holiday tradition.

"I really knew nothing about it. It's certainly not that something we had been made aware of or certainly not something we would have endorsed," said John Staples, coordinator for Toys for Tots.

If you've ever seen one of the donation boxes, then you already know. It's the Marine Corps Reserve who's coordinated the nationwide toy drive since 1947.

The goal is simple: provide toys for disadvantaged children.

The club is collecting toys through the end of the month.
