1st Annual Toys For Tots Toy Drive

1st Annual Toys For Tots Toy Drive
Thanksgiving is usually a great time to not only give thanks, but also a chance to play some games and get as many Tanks on the table as possible.

This year we are pleased to announce a merging of our annual “Tanksgiving” event with a Toys for Tots Charity event into our “1st Annual Toys for Tots Toy Drive”.

Support Toys for Tots and get your Tanks on the table through the month of November.

Stores have already been sent information to step forward and run a Flames Of War or Team Yankee activity during the month of November so make sure you ask your local store if they will be supporting this Toys for Tots initiative.

Store owners should contact their Account Manager for more information on how to participate.

Helping Children and Winning Prizes
In addition to helping children in need have a great Christmas, you have the opportunity to win a number of prizes (names drawn at random) just for participating. There will be a number of participation prizes:

  • 40 participants will be chosen to receive a random prize chosen from our books to boxes of tanks
  • 5 lucky participants will get a 150 point army of their choice
  • But 1 very lucky participant will win their height in Battlefront Box Sets (minimum height 5’8”)!  

What does someone’s height in boxes look like? Just take a gander at the handsome fella in the picture. That’s Mike, one of our Account Managers. Mike is 5’10” of awesomeness (5’11” with his hair spiked) standing next to 5’11” of random box sets!

Now the value will vary based on what your customer wants but Mike’s pick comes to over $1,500 USD at full retail! That’s enough to build at least 3 armies!

It’s also a great way to make new friends (Hey Mike, can you maybe hook me up?).

The prize draw is only available to US Stores and customers, however that doesn't mean you cannot find a worthy charity in your local country and arrange a great gaming weekend at your local gaming store.

1st Annual Toys For Tots Toy Drive

How Does It Work?
Players provide a new toy (value $15 or more) and the store will take to their local Toys for Tots drop off point or local children’s charity after the tournament.  For each additional toy beyond the first, players get a token for 1 in-game reroll. 

Stores will provide Battlefront with a list of players along with information on the number of toys collected (long with some pictures of the pile) as well the results of the event. Don't forget to submit a copy of the results to Battle Rankings.

The Battlefront team will conduct a live draw on Facebook on the 4th of December to announce the winners. Stay tuned for more information on the exact timing of the draw.

1st Annual Toys For Tots Toy Drive

Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. The program was founded in 1947 by reservist Major Bill Hendricks.
