BEVERLY HILLS, CA Monday, November 23, 2015 (PRWEB) November 24, 2015
Marine Toys for Tots Foundation and digital fundraising platform Dlyte announce their second annual partnership to help put toys under the tree for more than 7 million kids this holiday season. The two will be using a new fundraising campaign, Give While Giving, designed to help fill a gap when it comes to raising much-needed money during the holiday season (and throughout the year).
“We are very pleased to partner with Dlyte again this year as a corporate partner," said (Ret.) Maj. Bill Grein, Vice President, Marine Toys For Tots Foundation. “With their generous support and unique fundraising platform, we will be able to fulfill more Christmas and holiday dreams of many less fortunate children, who otherwise might be forgotten this year."
Give While Giving utilizes Dlyte’s Shop. Earn. Give. fundraising platform. Throughout the year, when TFT supporters purchase gift cards from their favorite restaurants and retailers through Dlyte, up to 30% of their purchases are automatically donated to Toys For Tots. During the holidays, the Give While Giving campaign allows supporters to donate to TFT every time they send an e-gift with Dlyte. This means every time supporters shop or send gifts with Dlyte they’re helping Toys For Tots without spending a penny more.
The program was put in place because not everyone has the means to buy holiday gifts AND support meaningful causes like Toys for Tots. The power of the Give While Giving campaign is that it allows supporters to Give a gift While Giving to Toys for Tots at the same time. “We’re dlyted that we can help so many kids this holiday season,” said Barry Shore, CEO “and empower people to GIVE while shopping.”
Last year, Toys For Tots distributed 18 million toys to 6.8 million less fortunate children.
IN 2015, Dlyte successfully raised significant funds for groups like the Wounded Warrior Project, USA Luge, ASPCA, CEED, Special Olympics and many others.
Dlyte projects the 2015 holiday season to be even more successful in bringing in extra money for nonprofit organizations because of their new iPhone and Android Apps that allow supporters to shop and send gifts on the go.
To kick off this year’s Give While Giving program, Dlyte will be donating $10 when a Toys For Tots supporter signs up and sends a gift with Dlyte.
Dlyte offers gift cards for 400+ top brands like Bed Bath & Beyond, Starbucks, ITunes, Amazon, AT&T, TGIFridays, The Gap, Walmart, Verizon and Applebee’s
TOYS FOR TOTS:
The mission of The U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. The primary goal of Toys For Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is a not for profit organization authorized by the U.S. Marine Corps and the Department of Defense to provide fundraising and other necessary support for the annual Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. Now in its 68th year, Toys for Tots provides joy and a message of hope to economically disadvantaged children through the gift of a new toy during the Christmas holiday season. Their gifts offer these children recognition and a positive memory they will cherish for a lifetime. Many of the gifts they provide, such as books, games and sports equipment, make a significant contribution to the educational, social and physical development of these children. In 2014, Marines distributed gifts to 6.8 million children in 759 communities nationwide. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation relies on individual donations from the American public as well as support from corporate sponsors. For more information, visit http://www.toysfortots.org.
