It’s common knowledge that the primary goal of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to deliver a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens. But were you aware of the “feel good” component of generosity? It really is better to give than to receive! Here are 3 reasons to donate to Toys for Tots this year.
1. The Mission – Choose to Accept It
For 60 years, the mission of the Toys for Tots Program has been to collect new, unwrapped toys each year, and to distribute those toys as gifts to children in our community. The joy of the holidays is something every child deserves to experience.
2. Bringing Hope and Joy to Kids and The Communities Where they Live – And Some to You!
The Toys for Tots program plays an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children, and contributes to bettering their communities. The toys are not only viewed as a simple gift, they also bring joy, happiness, and hope to children in need. These toys make a tremendous difference in the lives of local families. The impact of donating is two-fold – Psychologists have found that the act of philanthropy can “lift the spirits” of those who donate. When we “do good,” the brain can release dopamine – a neurotransmitter that controls the brain’s reward and pleasure centers.
