Leading Toymaker JAKKS Pacific Donates More than
$1 Million in Toys to the Toy Industry Foundation
 over Past Year

 

JAKKS Most Recently Gifted $125,000 in Toys to Industry-Wide

 'Do Good Stuff-a-Thon' for National Foster Care Mont

 

 
 
 

New York, NY | June 2, 2010 - The Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) - the nonprofit arm of the toy industry that puts toys in the hands of children living in poverty, suffering from chronic illness, and living in other stressful situations, applauds the generosity of leading toymaker JAKKS Pacific, Inc.  LA-based JAKKS has donated more than a million dollars in toys and school supplies to the TIF over the past year.  Most recently, JAKKS donated 12,000 toys "valued at close to $125,000" and had more than a dozen JAKKS employees volunteer at an industry-wide event where the nation's largest toy companies banded together to support National Foster Care Month.


JAKKS has been a long time supporter of the Toy Industry Foundation, having donated more than $5 million to TIF's signature program, The Toy Bank over the past several years.  The company's most recent contribution supported a TIF partnership with the My Stuff Bags Foundation to commemorate May as National Foster Care Month.  The donated products were a vital component of TIF's second annual
Do Good Stuff-A-Thon" held in Westlake Village, California, on May 7th.  Organizations such as California's
Bienvenidos received some of the 5,000 duffel bags that were stuffed with toys, toiletries, handmade blankets and other items; duffels will be distributed to agencies across the United States that rescue abused and neglected children. 

 

"We at Bienvenidos are most grateful to the Toy Industry Foundation and My Stuff Bags, as well as companies like JAKKS Pacific, who make all of our work possible through donations," said Ritchie Geisel, Bienvenidos President & CEO.  "Our kids typically arrive at their foster home with their meager belongings in a plastic bag.  Through the duffel bags that the children receive, stuffed with teddy bears, toys, and more, they begin to feel a sense of security, and often for the first time, they realize that someone really cares about them."

 

Longtime JAKKS Malibu employee Katie Credle, who was a JAKKS Cares volunteer at the "Do Good Stuff-A-Thon" and filled bags for baby girls with toiletries, diapers and soft toys, said "This event really makes you think about the end result" about this exact bag getting to a little kid, and hoping that when they open it up and see all the goodies, that it makes their day and their life a little bit better.  That is why we all do what we do - it's all for the kids.?

 

"Toys allow kids to be kids," said Jean Butler, executive director of the Toy Industry Foundation. "With generous support from companies like JAKKS Pacific, the TIF and its partners are able to bring the 'tools of play' to children in need. We are extraordinarily grateful for their support."

 

For more information about JAKKS Pacific and its support of the Toy Industry Foundation, please visit the organization's donor profile on the TIF website.

 

About the Toy Industry Foundation ( www.toyindustryfoundation.org  )

While other organizations provide food, shelter and support services to children and their families, the Toy Industry Foundation sees to it that these children have toys and opportunities to play in an attempt to restore both fun and a sense of normalcy to their lives. The Foundation currently fulfills its mission through core programs including The Toy Bank?, public education initiatives, and grants to organizations whose missions are in line with that of the Toy Industry Foundation.


The first industry-wide program of its kind, The Toy Bank receives donations of newly manufactured toys from members of the toy industry and distributes them through local charities to underserved, at-risk and homeless children throughout the United States and around the world.  The Toy Bank is administered by Gifts in Kind International.
