GSN Digital Spreads Cheer for Toys for Tots

GSN Digital Partners With Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to Raise Donations for Toys (December 03, 2012)

WALTHAM, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/03/12 -- It's the most wonderful time of the year! GSN Digital, the interactive division of GSN (Game Show Network), and the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation have once again partnered to bring smiles to children this holiday season. For more than 60 years, Toys for Tots has delivered toys to less fortunate children across the country. For the fifth consecutive year, GSN Digital is letting its game lovers join in the fun to help raise donations by playing games on GSN.com. To date, GSN Digital has raised nearly $65,398 for Toys for Tots through the generous support of its players.

WHO:
GSN Digital (gsn.com)

WHAT:
GSN Digital has come together with the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to raise donations to buy toys for less fortunate children this holiday season. GSN Digital offers two ways to spread the cheer:

  • Oodles for Tots: Players can rack up Oodles, GSN's virtual currency, by correctly answering trivia questions, picking winning numbers in BINGO Blitz, or climbing their way up the leader board in casual games like Bejeweled® 2 and Mahjongg Dimensions. Then, they can visit the GSN Prize Center to redeem their Oodles for donations of $5 or $10 to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

  • Play for Tots: Players who prefer to compete for real cash prizes can enter select online tournaments in games, including Wheel of Fortune, SCRABBLE® Cubes and Solitaire Rush, from which 10 percent of the entry fee goes to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.
