Sandals Foundation And Hasbro, INC. Spread Cheer With Annual Holiday Toy Drive And Contributions

sandals foundation

The Sandals Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts International, is gearing up for the holiday season and collecting donations for its annual Toy Drive for underprivileged children in the Caribbean. This year’s campaign is entitled “T.W.ELVES in 2012” (Truly Wonderful Elves) and is once again in partnership with Hasbro Inc., one of the world’s leading toy manufacturers and a valued partner of Beaches Resorts.
For every $12 donation to the Sandals Foundation’s T.W.ELVES in 2012” Annual Toy Drive made now through December 20, 2012, Sandals Resorts International will not only match the contribution, but enter the donor’s name into a lottery for a chance to win a four-day / three-night vacation for a family of four to a Beaches Resort (some restrictions apply). Additionally, Hasbro will donate a toy for every contribution made.
Founder and President of the Foundation’s Board of Directors, Adam Stewart, stated “We are so delighted by the continued generosity of our friends at Hasbro in working again with us this year on our Holiday Toy Drive.  When it comes to making wishes come true and reaching children in need, you couldn't ask for a better, truer partner.  It is because of their commitment to this program, that together, we were able to make it an unbelievable Christmas for thousands of underserved boys and girls living in the Caribbean last year. We know with Hasbro’s continued support, we will again be able to fulfill our quota of 10,000 new toys for the boys and girls who live in each of the five islands we serve.”
Sandals Resorts International invites donors to be part of this wonderful initiative by logging on to and making a tax-deductible contribution.  The Sandals Foundation will do the wrapping and the shipping, and will ensure that everyone’s gift makes it on Santa’s sleigh in time for Christmas delivery.  Donors can also mail a check to the Sandals Foundation, or send a gift card in the amount of their choice to the following address: T.W.Elves in 2012 Holiday Toy Drive, c/o Unique Vacations Inc., 4950 S.W. 72nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33155 by December 20, 2012.
