uBid's Buy a Toy, Give a Toy to Toys For Tots!
Help us make the holidays brighter for children less fortunate this holiday season â€“ uBid.com and RedTag recently kicked off our "Buy a Toy, Give a Toy" toy drive, benefiting Toys for Tots. Did you know that 22% of children under 18 in the US live in poverty*? That's a sobering statistic and it most likely means that toys and games are not high on the priority list for these families at this time of year. We want to help put some smiles on faces and make the holidays a little brighter by making sure as many kids as possible have a gift to open on Christmas. It's easy for you to join us in support. For every toy you purchase on uBid.com or RedTag,com through the end of the year, we'll donate one to Toys for Tots!
Our goal is to donate 3,000 toys to Toys for Tots by year end so we've stocked our site with highly sought after toys - all you need to do is take care of your holiday shopping list while supporting a timely and worthy cause, all without leaving the comfort of your home!
The link below will bring you to a great selection of toys available on uBid.com, which includes popular brands like Mattel, Fisher Price and Lego. You'll find all price ranges, age ranges and toy types are represented. You can bid and win in an exciting auction style toy listing or in many cases, simply just uBuyNow! Every toy you see on either one of our sites is eligible for the toy drive, and be sure to check video game consoles in our Electronics category too!
Be sure to visit RedTag.com the week of December 10 for a big Toy Event as well - if you'd like an Event reminder, sign up for RedTag email alerts!
Tis the season to give (back) and we hope you do, too. Happy shopping!
