As the year draws to a close and the holidays are upon us, there is a warm and renewed focus on paying it forward and charitably celebrating the season by giving back to others. This holiday season make a difference in the lives of children who are less fortunate with technology.  iRULU, known for its affordable cutting edge smart technology is giving back. iRULU has partnered with Toys for Tots this season and for purchases made online, a donation will be made. iRULU believes that technology is an incredibly important part of the learning process which is why they are  generously giving away $100,000 worth of tablets to less fortunate children. Major Bill Grein,  USMC (Ret) Marine Toys for Tots Foundation joins us to talk about Toys for Tots. Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve founded in 1947. Their mission is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children.
