|In February, Hasbro teamed up with generationOn, formally Youth HandsOn* and SOS Children Villages** to help children affected by the devastating earthquake in Haiti. Children nationwide responded to the disaster by hosting a PLAYATHON for Haiti. The funds raised were matched by Hasbro and used to purchase "pop-up" houses. These houses now provide children with a home and are helping to protect them from the elements as their country struggles to rebuild. Thank you to all the children around the country who responded to the needs of the children of Haiti!
The PLAYATHON for Haiti Results

*generationOn, formally Youth HandsOn, is the global youth service program under the Points of Light, igniting the power of youth to serve and make their mark on the world!
