GLOBALINX, SimpleSignal Help ADVODA Collect Toys for Tots

VoIP services providers got a head start on holiday spirit with their recent participation in a Toys for Tots event in Colorado.

SimpleSignal's team shops for ADVODA's Toys for TotsBoth SimpleSignal and GLOBALINX joined telecom consultancy ADVODA's hosting of the campaign. Toys for Tots was started by the U.S. Marine Corp Reserve; it has become an annual affair for the military branch, which collects new, unwrapped toys and distributes them as Christmas gifts to needy children in local communities. Toys for Tots runs during October, November and December each year. ADVODA held its seventh Toys for Tots function on Nov. 8.

ADVODA Toys for Tots began by breaking people into six teams. Then, ADVODA and Marine Corps representatives gave the teams lists of items and $700 each. The money came from donations from customers and partners. The teams also had discount cards and coupons on hand, to get the most out of their spending, and they ended up filling a military truck with more than $5,000 worth of action figures, stuffed animals, musical instruments, board games and more.
