The Casimiro Global Foundation invites you to be part of the 2012 Holiday Toy Drive. Our annual event kicked-off on November 20th, 2012, Universal Children's Day, when volunteers picked up their toy collection kits, and culminated with our Holiday Reception & Fundraiser on December 13th at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics Americas Headquarters in Doral, Florida. We continue to collect and distribute toys through January 3rd, 2013.
Play is an important part of every child's development. It sparks imagination and develops creativity from an early age, which can lead to innovation later in life.
This year's Toy Drive is celebrating it's 10th Anniversary. As a celebratory effort, our goal is to collect 10,000 toys to benefit 10,000+ needy children in over 10 countries, and it is combined with a contest for children and teens (information below).
For more information, to set up a toy collection box or assist with shipping, please contact us:
