SEATTLENov. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Toys are an important part of every child’s life, and parents agree. The average parent will spend $6,500 on toys per child before they reach their teens1. Toys are also the surest way to provide smiles for children at holiday time. This holiday season, along with unparalleled special finds, online retailer Zulily is bringing millions of customers the ability to make a difference as they shop for holiday toys. Throughout the month of November, for every qualifying order that includes two or more items from Zulily’s Santa’s Workshop, the company will donate $1 to Toys for Tots to help distribute toys to less fortunate children during the holidays.

“We have always believed we could provide something special for our customers each and every day, especially during the holidays. As mom’s one-stop destination for holiday gifts, we’re proud to express our commitment to our customers by partnering with Toys for Tots to spread joy with toys,” said Pam Merritt, Zulily’s merchandising manager. “The mission of the Toys for Tots program, to bring new toys to children of low-income families, is near and dear to our hearts because we know the gift of a new toy not only provides hope and joy to children who need it most, but relief to moms who may be struggling to bring joy to their children at holiday time. Now as customers start checking toys off their own holiday gift lists, they can shop, save, and enrich the lives of other children and families.”

Zulily customers are the ultimate planners – in fact, 71% of moms who define themselves as planners say they shop for the holidays as early as possible2. To enable millions of moms to plan ahead and save even more on their holiday shopping, Zulily provided moms an earlier-than-normal look at its Top 25 Toys for Holiday that are guaranteed to spark holiday magic. Through its partnership with Toys for Tots, Zulily is giving back when customers purchase these toys and more for their loved ones, so less fortunate children can share in the holiday magic of new toys, as well.

Beginning November 1, 2021, through November 30, 2021, Zulily will donate $1 to Toys for Tots for every qualifying order that includes two or more items from Santa’s Workshop, a dedicated shopping destination filled with magical toys that make a difference. From toys that develop fine motor and problem-solving skills, to toys that invite imagination and spark creativity, moms can feel good knowing the toys they purchase can also support the change they want to see in the world.

“Zulily creates meaningful connections with shoppers every day by delivering a fun and unique shopping experience. In fact, we’ve sold tens of millions of toys since our first sale in 2010 – that’s tens of millions of lasting memories made from toys alone,” said Merritt. “We recognize our responsibility to make sure these moments of joy also create lasting change for the communities we are a part of. As one of the largest online retailers of toys, we believe we can make a difference – one toy at a time.”

Toys for Tots was founded in 1947 with the goal of giving hope to less fortunate children over the holiday season. More than 70 years later, the program has distributed 604 million toys to over 270 million children. The toys, books, and games donated encourage children to be responsible, productive, and caring members of their communities. Through the joy of toys, no child should be left behind.
