RECORDING ARTIST DRAKE HOSTED THE SECOND EVER JINGLE ALL THE WAY
This is by far the most fun you will ever have giving. You will be provided a script and a part to play in a classic story. The rest is your imagination!
There are no words to express what Drake did for us, he helped establish the drive. But it was the Disney kids like Chelsea Tavares and Bella Thorne who transformed Jingle from a toy drive to a story reading event. That tradition continues with stars like Tamala Jones, JB Smooth, Holly Robinson Peete, and many more lending their time and talents.
