GSN Digital Spreads Holiday Cheer

GSN Digital and the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation Raise Donations for Toys

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2010) - It's the most wonderful time of the year! GSN Digital and Marine Toys for Tots Foundation have once again partnered to bring smiles to children's faces on Christmas morning! For more than 60 years Toys for Tots has delivered toys to less fortunate children across the country. Last year alone, the Foundation delivered 16.3 million toys to more than 7.4 million children. For the third consecutive year, GSN Digital is letting its game lovers join in the fun to help raise donations by playing games on GSN.com. 

WHO: 
GSN Digital (gsn.com)

WHAT: 
GSN Digital has come together with the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to raise donations for toys to bring to less fortunate children this holiday season. GSN Digital offers two ways to spread the cheer. Through GSN's Oodles for Tots program, players can rack up Oodles, GSN's virtual currency, by correctly answering trivia questions, picking winning numbers in BINGO Blitz, or climbing their way up the leaderboard in casual games like Bejeweled® 2 and Mahjongg Dimensions. Then, they can visit the GSN Prize Center to redeem their Oodles for donations of $10, $25 or $50 to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. Additionally, players who prefer to compete in cash tournaments can raise donations through the Play for Tots program. Players enter select online tournaments in games including SCRABBLE® Cubes, Zuma and Solitaire Rush, from which 10 percent of the entry fee goes to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. Since 2008, GSN Digital and its players have raised $34,000 for the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, bringing smiles and cheer to children across the country.
