Portion of Sales from “Special Edition” Orange Putty to Benefit Toy Foundation

New York, NY | July 6, 2020Crazy Aaron’s has been named the official “Adopt-the-Pig” sponsor of The Toy Foundation’s Toy Bank for 2020. An innovator and world leader in the next generation of creative play, Crazy Aaron’s sponsorship includes a $10,000 donation and the development of a special edition putty in The Toy Bank’s signature shade of orange, with a portion of the putty’s sales benefiting The Toy Foundation and its mission of bringing joy to children in need through toys and play.

“Crazy Aaron’s support and commitment to our cause means the world to us – and to the countless children who will be impacted by their donation,” said Elizabeth Max, senior manager of The Toy Foundation. “While toy donations are crucial, the funding we receive from individuals and corporate sponsors makes it possible for us to actually get the toys into the hands of children in need. Thank you, Crazy Aaron’s, for your sponsorship, which will help The Toy Bank bring the magic of play to more than a million children this year!”
