Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast on Friday evening, bringing with it winds and flooding across the most populated corridor in the United States. Estimates of the damage are still coming in as millions in the U.S. have been left without power. As of noon Tuesday, at least 21 are reported dead in the U.S., bringing the total death toll to 67.
Allentown, Pennsylvania-based Artistic Toy announced it will donate tens of thousands of stuffed animal plush toys to community organizations over the next 30 days. This act of philanthropy was inspired by the need to promote the U.S. Government’s new standards on toy safety and restore public confidence in the international supply chain.
