Brantley Gilbert’s Record Breaking Donation
The holiday season and giving spirit have touched Brantley Gilbert, who made a huge donation to Toys for Tots.
Brantley, who is a known supporter of servicemen and women, also has a soft spot for kids. He decided to help children in need just in time for Christmas by giving $10.5 million to Toys for Tots with the help of Bendon, Inc.
“Growing up in rural Georgia, I know that sometimes Christmas isn’t a time of joy for some kids and our contribution might be all they receive this year so I really wanted our donation to matter,” he says. “I’m honored the folks and Bendon understood why I wanted to work with them and Toys for Tots. Bendon’s books have some pretty cool heroes and lessons for all ages like Batman, Superman and Clifford the Big Red Dog to Disney, Peanuts and some of my favorites, Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. Whether a kid is into Barbie or Star Wars, I hope we’ve given a bit of fun and inspiration.”
His donation is not just heartwarming, but also record-breaking. Toys for Tots says they’ve never received a single donation this large.
