An anonymous philanthropist recently purchased $80,000 worth of toys at Carlsbad’s Geppetto’s Toys for Toys for Tots. The donation, which was picked up by U.S. Marines, is meant to encourage the public to share “the spirit of the holiday season.”

Toys for Tots is a nonprofit with a mission of collecting and distributing new unwrapped toys for less fortunate children during Christmas.

“With complete anonymity, the donor is spreading the Christmas spirit in a touching and remarkable way, shared for all to experience. In doing so, this donor is also helping a local business, whose owner, like so many others, has been challenged during the past 18 months by the pandemic,” organizers said.
