The company donated more than $1.8 million in new toys, games, and apparel to The Toy Foundation’s Toy Bank. TeeTurtle’s donation includes strategy games such as Exiled Legends, Daring Contest: Family Edition, SCRAM, and Runes & Regulations; as well as shirts, onesies for babies and adults, hoodies, and plushies.
“We strive to make games that help people express themselves and find a sense of belonging,” says Ramy Badie, CEO, TeeTurtle. “We want to bring people together through meaningful shared experiences and to promote play amongst children and adults alike, especially during such a challenging year. We were proud to come together with our community to spread joy by donating to The Toy Foundation.”
Nearly 70,000 underprivileged kids and teens, including those living in underserved communities severely impacted by the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic will benefit following the delivery of products to Harvest Time International, Facing Hunger, A Gift for Teaching, Solid As A Rock, H.E.R.O.E.S. Care, and NorthStar Foundation.
“We are grateful to receive this generous donation from TeeTurtle,” says Elizabeth Max, senior manager of The Toy Foundation. “This donation will make play possible for youth and teens who otherwise may not have access to the ‘tools of play,’ especially during the pandemic. We appreciate TeeTurtle’s generosity and look forward to building our partnership with them in the future!”
The Toy Bank is stocked by manufacturers, retailers, and distributors throughout the year, and makes play possible for families living in poverty, foster children, military families, kids undergoing medical treatments, children with special needs, and many others. The Toy Foundation collects millions of toys and distributes them to a network of more than 1,000 charities across the nation and around the globe and is always seeking toy and monetary donations.
