WDWNT 50-Hour Marathon Show to Benefit Toys for Tots

Every year since 2008, WDW News Today has hosted a charity drive at the end of November to raise money for the Toys for Tots Foundation. To date, we have raised over $80,000 for this amazing organization with donations through our website and those made during our annual live program during the holiday season. This year, we are once again asking you to be a part of this holiday tradition where we continue Walt Disney’s dream and try to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.

Over 60 years ago, Walt Disney became one of the original sponsors of the Toys for Tots foundation, which ensures that every underprivileged child receives a toy during the holiday season. Walt and his animators personally designed the original Toys for Tots train logo that is still used today and the first poster created for Toys for Tots.

In this spirit, WDW News Today is putting on a 50-HOUR live broadcast to raise money for Toys for Tots. Head to our YouTube channel now and subscribe so that you get notifications when the event goes live! We hope you will join us beginning at 9PM ET on November 25, 2021 when the broadcast begins and will help us by making a donation to this great cause at toys.WDWNT.com.

Here’s a schedule of events for the entire 50-hour broadcast (all times EST):
