To kick-off the holiday of giving back, eBay and Toys for Tots unwrapped" a new way to GIVE this season with the eBay Give One
program at giveone.ebay.com. There, shoppers can donate a toy to a child in need. eBay is also bringing the experience to life in NYC with The eBay Toy Box a pop-up showcasing seasons hottest toys, available new and now on eBay.
Mom and actress Jennie Garth was on-hand for the launch and told Momtrends more about this wonderful program. She noted, "The eBay Toy Box is a fun, new way shoppers can get the season's hottest toys AND donate to a child in need benefiting Toys for Tots through their mobile phones. I was very excited when eBay and Toys for Tots asked me to be a part of their opening. They are making it so easy for people to give back this holiday season." Through this program, "eBay is showcasing a new and easy way to GIFT and GIVE this holiday season - all through their mobile phones," Jennie stated.
I also asked her about what she tells her children about giving back for the holidays. She stated, "I always remind my girls that we are fortunate and not everyone receives gifts during the holidays. I really try to emphasize the importance of giving back to the community and involve them whenever I can."
At the Toy Box, shoppers can use their smartphones to instantly donate a toy to a child in need through Toys for Tots (eBay will match each donation). Shoppers can also browse and buy top toys and have them delivered (often within an hour!) through eBay Now, a new delivery service.
