Gaming for Good with TurboTax and Toys for Tots

Remember the joy you felt as a kid when you received a toy during the holidays?  At TurboTax, we have fond memories of unwrapping our Easy-Bake Ovens, Nintendo Game Boys, Barbies, you name it.  We want to ensure every child gets to feel this same joy.  This holiday season, TurboTax will donate more than 6500 toys to underprivileged children with Gaming for Good with TurboTax and Toys for Tots.

What is Gaming for Good with TurboTax and Toys for Tots?  It’s an easy to play game on Facebook that TurboTax created to donate holiday toys to Toys for Tots.  With three levels, we will test your memory by asking you to pair together images of varying tax deductible items.  And when you successfully complete “Gaming for Good”, TurboTax will donate one toy to a child in-need.  Essentially, you play and we give!  Easy, right?
