Parents, teachers and youth leaders can encourage kids to complete an act of service, and kids can encourage their friends, classmates and peers to commit to helping others. The more kids and teens who volunteer, the more toys and games Hasbro will donate to those in need during the holidays.
Kids and families everywhere can make their mark on their local community by taking action on the Be a Joy Maker site or on Facebook. They can also explore holiday project ideas and share their stories at www.generationOn.org.
