PYPPLAY YOUR PART

Delivering joy to foster children!

TIF loves to see the toy industry showing their big hearts! We built industry-wide employee volunteer events called Play Your Part, which enable toy industry employees from companies of all sizes to work side-by-side to deliver the joy of play to children in the foster care system. Currently conducted in Los Angeles and Chicago, with plans for another event in the Northeast, Play Your Part is a much-anticipated, fun opportunity to give back AND to connect with your colleagues from the industry!

SEE PHOTOS FROM THIS YEAR'S EVENTS!

Play Your Part events are operated by TIF and our national partner, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). CASA provides services and support to children trying to navigate the complicated court system by ensuring that these children have advocates, or “CASAS” to supply them with critical information, advocacy, love and guidance.

Each event is complete with a DJ, lunch, toy industry-sponsored games and activities and a toy distribution! Tens of thousands of toys are then shipped to CASA programs around the country so that we can serve foster children in additional states. In 2016, we provided the gift of play to more than 30,000 foster children! To date, the toy industry has donated $3.7 million dollars’ worth of toys and served 375,000 children since our partnership with CASA launched in 2013.
