  Can’t make it into an IKEA store? No problem! Join IKEA Orlando, Miami, Sunrise and Tampa for a Twitter Chat on Wednesday, December 3rd, from 12:30pm to 1:30pm EST!

Also happening: IKEA Foundation’s annual #SoftToys4Education drive has begun at all IKEA stores around the world. Did you see the cool Vine the Orlando location did for it?? SO. CUTE. Help these little guys and their friends find their way home to the Children’s Home Society of Florida by visiting IKEA Orlando and dropping a soft toy in the chimney near the exit!

 

At IKEA, we believe that children are the most important people in the world. It’s great to see the awareness of this campaign grow over the years, allowing us to help more children begin and stay in school,” said Kendra Ferguson, IKEA Orlando’s Local Marketing Specialist.

We now have customers asking us when it will begin. It’s a great time to teach their children about giving back; and with the option to give twice, parents can let their children select a toy for themselves and one that they think another child would enjoy receiving.

IKEA’s soft toys star in the store’s children’s books and new card games that train memory, as well as visual and social skills. IKEA Foundation will also make a donation when these items are purchased – making a great holiday present package, as every donation gives the powerful gift of an education to children in need around the world.  

Since 2003, the holiday sales of the furniture retailer’s soft toys has raised nearly €67 million, supported 99 projects in 46 countries, and helped more than 11 million children receive a better education.  The IKEA Foundation, which works with a total of 31 nonprofit organizations, is the largest global corporate donor to UNICEF, the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), Save the Children, Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) and KickStart International.   IKEA Orlando wants your help to find their soft toys a home at the Children’s Home Society of Florida (@HelpFLKids), and they need OUR help! Here’s how you can ‘double dip’ to help children locally AND internationally:
