Almost daily ComicBook.com receives toys, subscription boxes and collectibles from toy manufactures and distributors. This brought up the question of what should we do after these toys have been reviewed? Often they are given to staff and their families. Somehow they just disappear ;-)
We want to make sure these toys find a special home going forward and also build an express lane for staff and friends of ComicBook.com to distribute toys and collectibles to children and families in need, especially during the holiday season.
We are kicking off this opportunity to serve our local community with a 7-day toy drive, starting today at Noon and ending on Wednesday, December 13th. We’ve vetted and selected four very deserving charities for 2017 (listed below).
Falon and I are donating $10,000 to this drive and the investors of ComicBook.com along with ComicBook Chairman William “Bill” King have agreed to match our donation, insuring that we have a starting point of $20,000 of toys, electronics and sports equipment to distribute this holiday season.
But we want more and need your help! We are asking that all staff and friends of ComicBook.com pick up a toy (or electronics and sports equipment) and drop it off at our offices.
We will keep you updated along the way. Thank you for your help!

PLEASE make sure your toy donation is something good, something sturdy, something memorable and something that you would personally give your child or personal friend. Remember, in many cases, this may be one of the only few items these children receive this holiday season. Also, be sure to think of older kids too, especially teens. Another good idea are batteries. A bundle of batteries would be a great donation for all the toys that will need them. If your toy requires batteries, get those as well and attach to giftSELECTED CHARITIES
