We are so excited to be partnering with Old Spice and the #HoliSPRAY Toy Donation benefiting Second Chance Toys!!

We are thrilled to announce that our family will be working as #HoliSPRAY ambassadors collecting  gently used toys to benifit the mission of Second Chance Toys!  Old Spice has launched a first-of-its-kind, holiday toy donation program with non-profit Second Chance Toys, an organization dedicated to keeping plastic toys out of landfills by donating them to children in need throughout local communities in the U.S.

Second Chance Toys was recently featured on Good Morning America!

Together, we’re encouraging moms and dads and sons (and anyone with gently used plastic toys that they’ve outgrown) to donate them to kids in need. As a reward for this grown-up gesture, Old Spice will be gifting them with Re-fresh Body Spray in exchange for their donation. The inaugural Old Spice HoliSPRAY Toy Donation Exchange runs from Dec. 3 through Dec. 15.

Inspired by the hilarious moment from the new Old Spice “Dadsong” (:60) TV ad when the dad runs over his son’s childhood toys with a riding lawnmower, the Old Spice HoliSPRAY Exchange is designed to rescue all of those used dump trucks and fire engines to bring joy to the lives of disadvantaged children during the holidays.

Isaiah Mustafa, Nolan Gould

To help drive awareness and participation for the program, Nolan Gould of ABC’s acclaimed hit comedy, “Modern Family,” and Old Spice Guy Isaiah Mustafa will also act as HoliSPRAY Toy Donation Exchange Ambassadors. On Dec. 10, Gould and Mustafa will host a toy collection event at Hollywood High School in Los Angeles, which will serve as one of many toy collection locations across the U.S. participating in the program.

  1. What a great idea! I think gently used toys are just as appreciated as new ones 🙂 I’m going to have to see if there is a drop off place in our area.

  2. This is such a great program. Unfortunately, there are no areas in NC or relatively close-to-me in SC where I can donate! (I’ll still donate toys, though.)

  16. Oh my gosh I wish I was at Hollywood high school today! What a great program I love old spice for their fun ideas on social media they are very clever. They keep us guessing and this is just a really lovely idea of a partnership that gives back and makes me want to buy things like old spice.

  18. Every year kiddo cleans out her unwanted toys to make room for new ones. We always have some that didn’t really get played with and even 1 or a few that are still in packaging. She gets so much stuff between all of her families. Now I am going to see if their is a drop off for this program. It would make her feel good to know they were actually going to someone instead of Goodwill. Sometimes we give to a family at our church.

  20. That is very cool. I love that Old Spice is doing this and I hope you get tons and tons of donations!
