Why Give One When You Can Give Two?

A Donation with An Impact

It is no secret that this holiday season will be very different from previous years. Holiday events and traditions will be significantly impacted. Sidelined are the family trips to Rockefeller Center, annual visits with Santa, holiday themed fundraising events like the Santa Run, and holiday shopping at the mall. In a time of such uncertainty, it is important that we preserve the wonder of the holiday spirit and ensure that children are still excited about opening presents on Christmas morning.

While donation efforts have dwindled due to COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines, donateatoy.org has remained faithful to providing children with holiday cheer by pledging to match every donation made virtually using their online platform. Donate A Toy’s toy match program on behalf of Marine Toys for Tots has caught the eye and won the hearts of several major media outlets, corporations, and celebrities as a result of its ease, efficiency, and superior engineering.

A few organizations that Donate A Toy is proud to partner with are Costello’s Ace Hardware who joined the fight to keep the season alive by creating “Costello’s Cares Virtual Toy Drive.” Another company that deserves an honorable mention is Deloitte & Touche who began offering the Donate A Toy match platform to their New York employees as a direct route for important donations. Lawrence Taylor’s organization Fore Life Inc. which chose Donate A Toy to launch its holiday toy drive efforts and Operation Toy Train which heads large scale toy collection throughout the tri state area to ensure that charitable efforts would not be halted as a result of the pandemic. Marine Toys for Tots continues to urge both corporations and individuals to utilize Donate A Toy’s online system as an alternative if they are unable to donate traditionally to a Toys for Tots donation box.

Donate A Toy’s system provides the ability for individuals to easily and directly donate to Toys for Tots and even better, to have their donation matched. The online system allows organizations of any size to have the option to host a virtual toy drive! All participating organizations are provided with all the necessary marketing material, back-end access to track donations, and a certificate of donation at the conclusion of the drive which includes the toy matched by the platform.

News stations across the country have begun to utilize the virtual platform as a means of revolutionizing corporate and personal donations this holiday season! The virtual donation and match system has been engineered to pave the way for the future by making charitable donations faster, easier, and better than ever. While COVID-19 has posed many challenges to the traditional process of toy donation, Donate A Toy is passionate about delivering the holiday season that children deserve.
