Toys for Tots is a program ran by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. Their mission is to put smiles on the faces of less fortunate children who deserve to feel the joy of receiving gifts during the holidays.

For over 70 years, the Marine Corps has been making a difference in the lives of American families. Well-known people like Barack and Michelle Obama, Ellen Degeneres, and Melania Trump even contributed into making children feel the delight of Christmas.

Generous sponsors like Hallmark, Hasbro, and The Walt Disney Company have contributed at least one million in cash, or two million in toys.

Overall, this organization is truly amazing, giving hope to children during the holidays. And this has made a major, positive impact on America.
