>>> the holidays are a very special time here at "today." one of the reasons is because we get to do something so wonderful for underprivileged children .
>> that's the mission of our toy drive. one of our valued partners is homegoods.
>> nice to see you.
>> who do you have with us today?
>> this is a giraffe. i've named him happy. this is an excellent example of the toys we sell.
>> why is this important for you?
>> this year we're giving $25,000 cash to the toy drive, because we believe that helping kids during the holiday season is one of the most important things you can do. this money will go a long way towards making the holidays happy.
>> you don't just do it at christmas time , you're active with st. jude's and the jimmy fund .
>> we're partners with st. jude's childrens hospital and are participating in the annual thanks campaign.
>> you don't often think of toys when you think of homegoods, but you do have that, as well?
>> a ton of toys. along with the gifts we sell, we have classic and educational toys . we believe classic toys never go out of style and educational toys help children learn. we sell the same toys at high-end specialty stores , but for a lot less.
>> catherine can sleep well at night. living a beautiful life and making life possible for other kids.
>> merry christmas .
