With all the sad news of Toys ‘R’ Us closing its doors, this bit of news should hopefully lift your spirits. Isaac Larian, a toy manufacturer who gave the world Bratz dolls and the current hit toy LOL Surprise, has launched a crowd-funding campaign to save Geoffrey! Larian, chief executive of California-based MGA Entertainment Inc., a privately held toy and entertainment company, and other investors have pledged over $200 million. They want to raise another $800 million in order to make a $1 billion bid to acquire “all or some Toys R Us assets through the bankruptcy process.”
You can be a part of this historic movement to #SaveToysRUs by donating today! Your donation will help to ensure that generations to come can “always be a Toys“R”Us kid” and save employee jobs that are at stake should the company cease operation. The deadline for reaching the $1 billion goal is Memorial Day, May 28, 2018. The funds collected through this campaign would be used in the formulation of a bid to acquire some Toys“R”Us assets through the bankruptcy process. This is not a charitable donation, and certain donor disclosures apply.
