Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) October 17, 2008
Beginning in November, Affinity4, one of the nation's leading affinity-based marketers specializing in helping charities, ministries and other non-profit organizations raise funds, will be going the extra mile to help one of the holiday season's most beloved traditions -- the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve's Toys for Tots Program. As part of its "GiveBack to Kids" campaign, Affinity4 will donate $5 to Toys for Tots for every core product (i.e., long distance phone service, Internet, digital and wireless) it sells during the holiday season and match all dollars raised by its customers during this campaign. In addition, as part of their fourth quarter philanthropic activities, Affinity4's employees will volunteer to select toys for purchase, donate toys and/or make their own financial contributions to support the Toys for Tots Program.
All of the toys Affinity4 will collect will adhere to the required regulations of not having a military theme or involving any chemicals. In accordance with Toys for Tots' guidelines, the company also is recommending that the toys selected be approximately $10 in value or more and appropriate for a child/children in the age range of 1 through 12 years old.
On December 19th, a U.S. Marine Corps Reserve representative will visit Affinity4's Norfolk, Virginia office to collect both the toys contributed and the donation check.
