SimplyFun LLC., publisher of educational board games, will Play It Forward this holiday season by supporting the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation with a $500,000 product donation. This donation of games will be distributed to children and families in need during the holidays to help fulfill the Toys for Tots commitment to ensuring every child in need receives a Christmas gift.
“Finding a present under the tree on Christmas morning is an experience every child deserves,” said retired Marine Colonel Ted Silvester, vice president of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. “Simply Fun has certainly done more than its fair share to help us bring that joy to children whose families have suffered so much. With their generous support we will be able to fulfill the Christmas holiday dreams of thousands of less fortunate children who otherwise might be forgotten.”
SimplyFun has also donated an additional $160,000 in games to the My Stuff Bags Foundation. This donation will contribute to the mission of the foundation to support children in crisis, including support for foster children in transition.
“We are so grateful for the support of SimplyFun,” said Janeen Holmes, president/CEO of My Stuff Bags Foundation. “Their donations of wonderful games and puzzles have brought so much joy to children receiving them in their My Stuff Bags! This most recent, fabulous holiday donation will help us bring the gift of play to thousands of children who need to know people care.”
By partnering with these charitable organizations, SimplyFun carries out its mission to Play It Forward, a movement that originally began as an effort by SimplyFun Independent Consultants to provide the joy of play to children in need in their local communities. It has since evolved into a bigger commitment to help even more children and families in need this holiday and beyond.
