Every year since 2008, WDW News Today has held a charity campaign at the end of November to raise funds for the Toys for Tots Foundation. To date, we have raised over $ 49,000 for this incredible organization through donations through our website and through our annual live program during the holiday season. This year, we ask you once again to be a part of this holiday tradition where we pursue Walt Disney’s dream and try to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.

Over 60 years ago, Walt Disney became one of the first sponsors of the Toys for Tots Foundation, which ensures that every underprivileged child receives a toy during the holiday season. Walt and his animators personally designed the original Toys for Tots train logo which is still in use today and the first poster created for Toys for Tots. With that in mind, WDW News Today is hosting a 50 HOURS live show to raise money for Toys for Tots. We hope you’ll join us TONIGHT starting at 9 p.m. ET when the broadcast begins and help us by donating to this great cause at
