As families worldwide celebrate the holiday season, Hasbro, Inc. is helping to ensure that children in need experience the joy of the season, too.
The company hosted Tuesday its third annual Global Day of Joy, a day when Hasbro empowers all 5,000 of its employees to become ‘elves’ and engage in community service projects in 40 different countries.
This global volunteer day is one of many different initiatives Hasbro has in place to help children in need experience the joy of play and also to empower kids to share that same joy with others.
During this holiday season alone, Hasbro expects to donate more than a half million toys and games, valued at $6 million, to organizations benefitting children in need around the world.
Hasbro also helps to inspire the spirit of giving in youth to help others. This is part of a larger philanthropic focus the company has on helping kids to develop empathy, compassion and kindness as they grow up.
