You may not know this but the whole Geek Girl Diva thing was born during my time at Entertainment Earth and EE has a place near and dear to my heart for a number of reasons.
Having read that EE just donated $100,000 worth of toys to Toys for Tots, I need to add another reason to my list ;-)
Please take a moment to read the press release after the break. EE did good and I want to share the love.
In the spirit of giving this holiday season, Entertainment Earth, Inc. (entertainmentearth.com) has donated $100,000 worth of toys to Toys for Tots for its annual holiday toy drive, bringing holiday cheer to less fortunate children in communities nationwide.
Entertainment Earth knows that every collector starts as a tot. “I’m a fan first, and the toys I got as a kid are what inspired me to become a collector and start this company. I’m thrilled that we are able to share our love of toys by donating to kids in need,” said Jason Labowitz, president and co-founder of Entertainment Earth.
“It’s really because of our clients that we’ve grown and are able to donate these toys. Without our clients, we wouldn’t have the resources to help kids experience the joy of the holiday season,” Labowitz said.
Toys for Tots holds an annual toy drive to collect new unwrapped toys, and distributes those toys as Christmas gifts to children in need across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
