For this year, ToyCon 2011 will support the toy drive organized by ABS CBN, we are inviting everyone to come at our event and bring some educational toys needed for our toy drive, just visit the ABS CBN booth for the donation box.
Please read the list of toys that are preferred by our Department of Education.
The toy drive is dubbed Larunungan: Kalinga Kapamilya Toy Drive. One of the objectives is to raise awareness re: Universal Kindergarten by raising toys that will be donated to the incoming Kindergarten students this school year. People are encouraged to donate toys instead of cash since toys play a crucial part in a child's learning process.
Toys are tools for learning. through play, a kindergarten kid: 1.) picks up new ideas, 2.)exercises his muscles (thus improving his motor skills), 3.) uses his imagination and 4.) learns how to cooperate with others.
And by encouraging kids to donate their old toys the project seeks to become a child's first lesson on charity and instill in them the value of generosity. It is also one of their first lessons about materialism, that it's okay to let go of a material object, one that you hold dear, if you know that doing so would help another kid.
The project, in other words, targets children (both donor of toys and recipients) and stresses on the value of nurturing young minds so that they become good and responsible citizens when they grow up.
