CHARITABLE GIVING

This month’s video was a special one for us because it was filmed at the Haven Academy Charter School in New York City (the Bronx) during the annual “Back to School” event sponsored by the Toy Industry Association’s philanthropic arm, the Toy Industry Foundation and its partner the My Stuff Bags Foundation.

Members of the toy industry work in many ways to bring millions of smiles to millions of kids every year.  In this video, we identify a few toys that are fun to play with AND give back to organizations such as the Children's Brain Tumor Foundation, Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the New York City Police Foundation and Firefighters Fund, and organizations that support earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan. Diggin Active even plants a tree for every one of its SKUUTT bike sold:
