GenerationON Holiday Gift Campaign


From Nov. 29-Dec.12, for each person involved in service work during the holidays or in the new year, Hasbro will donate a toy to a child in need through Toys for Tots—up to 100,000 toys. All you have to do is pledge that service!

Need ideas for projects? You’ll find step-by-step project instructions on their website. Already have a volunteer activity planned in the new year? Great—you can pledge that too! They’ve made it easy for you to pledge for groups. The number of people in your service group equals the number of toys donated!
