We just got an important press release:
LOS ANGELES, CA – Tuesday, November 17, 2015 – Announced today, the “It’s All About Love” Toys For Tots online campaign at www.toysfortotsdrive.com to raise monetary contributions to support the annual toy drive has launched.
As a thank you gift, those donating $10.00 will receive a digital copy of J.C. Lee’s (Stan’s daughter) ebook “It’s All About Love – The Lee Family,” a family photo album featuring never before seen personal photographs.
“We’re excited to participate in this wonderful campaign to support our Toys for Tots program,” said retired Marine Major Bill Grein, Vice President of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. “While we receive many new, unwrapped toys for deserving youngsters, monetary contributions supplement our efforts and help support our program. It also helps us provide additional gifts for those ‘hard to buy for’ teens and pre-teens. We are very grateful to J.C. and Stan Lee for their generosity and support of our 2015 campaign,” he added.
Since its founding in 1947, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program has collected over 494 million toys fulfilling the Christmas dreams of over 230 million less fortunate children. It has been supported by numerous celebrities including First Lady Michelle Obama.
“100% of the net proceeds raised from the online campaign will be used to support the Toys For Tots program,” said Alain Nguyen, “It’s All About Love” campaign chairman. “We would like to raise $1 million and are reaching out to the comic book community and general public for their participation.”
“Contributing online is simple and easy and a great way to assist the Marine Corps Reserve in helping families give their children a memorable holiday,” Grein said.
