It’s probably safe to say that we’re all at least a little guilty of finding ourselves wrapped up in the “present frenzy” this time of year, but the old saying is true—giving is better than receiving. We were reminded of this little mantra when we went to the annual Hasbro Toy Wrap Party benefitting generationOn, where some of our favorite teen stars were busy spreading holiday cheer to those in need. The good news is, it’s not too late to join them! From now until December 23, for every child or teen who volunteers with generationOn’s Joy Maker Challenge, Hasbro will donate a toy or game to Toys for Tots, up to $1 million worth of toys. All you have to do is sign up, create a #joymaker plan and share here when you’re finished! “What is a #joymaker plan?” you ask. The options are endless. Make a card, have a bake sale, donate coats, decorate a senior center… anything that gives someone else a reason to smile this holiday season. A child in need will have something under her Christmas tree thanks to your act of kindness.
Get inspired by what these stars had to say about their experiences giving back to those in need, then get started on your own #joymaker plan!
