Free Legos for Toys for Tots by sending an e-greeting

December 7th, 2011 · No Comments · Children's Charities

Remember that scene in It’s a Wonderful Life after Clarence and George get booted out of Nick’s bar where Nick is giving out wings by opening and closing his cash register?¬†Happily, you can do the same thing!

If you visit http://www.legosantayoda.com, you can be one of 1,000,000 people who can get a toy to Toys for Tots just by sending an e-greeting!

Another way to help is by going to Lexus’ Facebook page and sharing a “big red ribbon”. For the first 20,000 people to do this, Lexus will donate $5 to Toys for Tots.

Yet another way to give a “free” donation to Toys for Tots is to enter a UPC code from a specially marked package of International Delight, Silk, Land O Lakes, or Horizon Organic milk or cream at¬†http://www.shareyourdelight.com/.

Of course, the truth is any of these “free” ways of donating is just as much a PR stunt for the company. Not that that’s a bad thing–anything that brings money and attention to great causes like Toys for Tots is a good thing. But remember that the most important thing is for you to donate directly to the cause. In the case of Toys for Tots, that means donating a brand new unwrapped toy at a toy drop-off, or donating directly to them. That way, you’ll be sure that this Christmas, children who live in poverty who otherwise would have nothing under their tree can be thrilled with a brand new toy.
