On the occasion of Children’s Day, many retailers have introduced schemes, offers, donations et al for the unprivileged kids of the society. Toonz Retail, the one-stop shop for all the needs and occasions for kids ageing between 0-12 years, has launched its campaign ’Spread Smiles’ through which Toonz's loyal customers across 100+ stores donated their old clothes, toys and books, which are in good condition and got discounts on their new purchases. This retail chain for kids had set up ’Spread Smiles’ boxes across all its 100+ stores in India from November 12 onwards, where customers could donate their kids’ old clothes, toys and books. Toonz will ensure that these gifts reach the children, who need it the most, with the help of different NGO’s.
“Every child loves being pampered on Children’s day. However there are these less fortunate one’s for whom this day has no meaning. There are many of us who genuinely want to do something for these kids and give back to the society, but hold back due to lack of time. Hence, we decided to make it easy for our customers to spread smiles on the face of the less fortunate kids. We requested all our customers to come forward and donate the old belongings of their little ones, which can be used by the needy. We are incentivising them for their kind gesture by giving them 20% discount on their new purchases”, shared Sharad Venkta, MD & CEO, Toonz Retail India Pvt. Ltd.
