once upon a jingle

We need your time and your talent! Jingle All The Way brings a little joy to the world by reading literary classics and interesting fairytales to a captive audience of energetic young people from underserved communities.

the jingle holiday drive

Jingle All The Way hosts readings for children. To help bring the words to life, actors, athletes, personalities, and entertainers participate in a "table-read" style event -- with dozens of children hanging on every word.


  • Recruits notables for readings
  • Identifies toy drive partners
  • Engages volunteers
  • Hosts story readings 



JINGLE 1, JINGLE 2, JINGLE 3 - The goal of celebrities reading classic stories and placing toys in the hands of children during the holidays became a reality when actors and recording artists like Drake, Bella Thorne ("Shake It Up"), Micheal B. Jordan (Oscar Nominee "Fruitvale Station"), Chelsea Tavares ("Fright Night"), Malaysia Pargo (“Basketball Wives”), Candace Cameron Blue (“Full House”), Thomas Gibson (“Criminal Minds”), Jonathan McDaniel (“Hit The Floor”), Wesley Jonathan (“The Soul Man”), Arjay Smith (“Perception”), Jake Short (A.N.T. Farm), Matthew Fahey (“Awkward) and more chose to lend their time to support families in need.

Value of Celebrity

"Celebrity, in and of itself, has no value except for what it can do to change the lives of the less fortunate." Darren D.

those in need

Jingle Holiday Drive enlists eloquent elves to help spread holiday cheer to children and families. There are tons of toys collected each year at annual drives, but who plays Santa to the children receiving those donations? Our Jingle All The Way event allows amazingly people to give a little differently in a more meaningful way at the Most Wonderful Time Of The Year by reading classics!
