There's #NoWishTooBig for Shaq-A-Claus, and so many ways parents and kids can join us in
making wishes come true this Christmas!
The Great Big Shaq-A-Claus Wish List
Parents can purchase a toy from The Great Big Shaq-A-Claus Wish List to donate to a child who might
otherwise go without a present to open on Christmas morning. Toys purchased from this list will go directly to
Toys for Tots to help kids in need. See what items made Shaq-A-Claus' list, and consider a toy donation.
Shaq-A-Claus Recruits Kids to Help Fulfill Wishes
Shaq-A-Claus wants to know which toys to bring to less fortunate children this holiday season, and who better to
tell him than kids! By making suggestions for which hot toys to place on The Great Big Shaq-A-Claus Wish List, kids
can help Shaq, and everyone who would like to donate toys, fulfill the Christmas wishes of little ones in need. Kids
simply have to pick their favorite toy, draw a picture of it, tell us the name of the toy and then ask mom or dad to
post their drawing on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #NoWishTooBig. Toys''R''Us will donate a toy to the
Marine Toys for Tots Foundation for each child's suggestion that is made and shared, up to $1 million worth of toys.
Wish It Forward
Parents can help Shaq-A-Claus bring toys to kids in need by paying off the balance of a neighbor's layaway order at a local Toys''R''Us store this holiday season. Every time we hear about a generous benefactor ''wishing it forward'' in this way, we'll donate $200 worth of toys (the average value of a layaway order) to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation...up to $1 million worth of toys! Through our Wish Come True Tracker, we'll provide ongoing updates on Facebook of where layaways have been paid off through goodwill gestures in communities across the country. We continue to be inspired by many give-back stories of generous citizens who anonymously paid off another's layaway order just to make Christmas brighter for someone in their community.

More Ways to Make Wishes Come True
We hope you'll join Shaq-A-Claus and become part of the Wish It Forward movement to spread Christmas cheer, whether it's a charitable
volunteer effort, an anonymous act of kindness, by supporting Toys for Tots through a toy or cash donation or perhaps considering any of
the following ideas this holiday season:
  • • Support our ongoing campaign to benefit the
      Marine Toys for Tots Foundation
  • • Spend an afternoon with your family making Christmas cards for
      residents of a nearby nursing home
  • • Serve a meal at a local soup kitchen
  • • Bake holiday cookies for a neighbor
  • • Volunteer to bring joy to kids at a local hospital
Donated toys will be given to a local Toys for Tots program for distribution. Cash donations will be given to the Marine
Toys for Tots Foundation to purchase toys for children in need. This program is also supported by the Toys''R''Us children's Fund.
