The Power of Play by Mattel

My constant worry is that my son is watching too many movies, and not getting outside enough.
I'm constantly monitoring movie time, its a never ending battle with my 3 year old. He has toys, so many toys that every six months I donate and sell alot of them. My son even knows how to work his daddy's tablet better than me!
We are blessed to be able to provide him with everything he needs and wants. I'm proud to write about Mattel's Power of Play Program because it focus' on those in desperate need of financial support and yes toys too!
Mattel is actively helping the children in the world who are in grave poverty. They give 2% pre-tax donation every year, doesn't sound like much but how about last year that 2% totaled over $20 million dollars! Last year Mattel helped 5 million children in over 50 different countries.
In addition to, the Power of Play Program encourages play with others to be a learning social experience. Playing builds character, and imagination. I can't imagine a better way to teach a child about life, sharing, and kindness. The Power of Play Program wants every child to be able to experience the power of play.

About Mattel's Power of Play Program:
Mattel is creating the future of play! Mattel believes in the power of play as positive play increases imagination, development and joy and has developed the Power to Play program. Nowhere is that more evident than in their global philanthropic efforts.
