Buy a toy now to make a kid’s season bright

So far Metro readers have bought nearly 350 toys for kids like Tony. And we still have one week left to go in our first-ever holiday toy drive!

Metro partnered with New York Cares Winter Wishes and Toys for Tots NYC to give presents to less fortunate kids this holiday season.

Want to buy a gift, like the digital camera ($34.99) or train set ($50) Tony wants? It’s easy. Log on to www.Metro.us and click on the “Metro Magic” logo in the top left corner. You will be redirected to ToysRUs.com, where you can purchase a gift online.
All gifts will be mailed to the Metro offices, and on Dec. 17, volunteers from Toys for Tots will come pick up the presents.

What’s more, we want to reward any one of Metro’s 600,000-plus readers who are helping us out. If you bought a gift through Metro Magic, just send us an e-mail to charity@metro.us. Those who donate can receive prizes ranging from an autographed Jets football to tickets to Radio City’s Christmas Spectacular.

Let’s party!

Metro wants to thank our hundreds of readers who have contributed with a party tomorrow night.

When: Tuesday, Dec. 14

Where: Copia restaurant, at 53rd Street and Second Avenue

Time: 6 to 9 p.m.

How: A $10 donation at the door or a new, unwrapped toy gets you a free drink ticket and a raffle ticket to win prizes like Nets tickets and tickets to Broadway shows.

Additionally, when you RSVP before Tuesday afternoon to charity@metro.us, Copia will send you a $25 gift certificate for lunch or dinner.
