Randa Joins National "Toys for Tots" Program


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York, NY (December 2, 2014) – Randa Accessories is pleased to partner with the esteemed U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program as a national corporate donor.



Founded in 1947 the Toys for Tots Program’s primary goal is “to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters…” To date the program has distributed over 469 million toys to over 216 million less fortunate children.

Joining as national corporate donor in a group that counts among them General Motors Corporation and The Mead Foundation, Randa Accessories kicked off its campaign Randa New York Toys for Tots with special guests Staff Sergeant Corrales and Sergeant Sahn who helped rally the troops to support the toy collection strategy.

“We have had a great response to Randa’s inaugural Toys for Tots initiative and it has gotten off to an enthusiastic start,” said Randa’s vice president, talent and Toys for Tots New York captain, Chris Ingram. “We are confident we will exceed our collection goal.”

“The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve and its Toys for Tots Program, represent a longevity and dedication that is a reflection of Randa’s history and culture,” said David Katz, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Randa Accessories. “We are proud to be a part of such an honorable campaign and to add Toys for Tots to Randa’s charitable initiatives.”

While a main objective of the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to help “less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas,” it also seeks a larger objective. That is to use its role to both encourage children in becoming productive and responsible citizens, and to unite communities in this common cause, bettering the future for all. 

“Randa Accessories is delighted to contribute.” said Randa’s Chris Ingram, “In the spirit of the holidays and December 2nd’s third annual #GivingTuesday, we hope many more will be inspired to help.”

The End of Mass Marketing: Go Small, or Go Home

Once upon a time… business success was based on providing a narrow segment of consumers with a narrow segment of products, uniquely suited to their needs, sourced and advertised locally, and sold at a local store. Over time, the spread of mass media - TV, national newspapers and magazines - along with the expansion of national retail stores, and the growth of a global and highly efficient supply chain, led to a world of mass marketing, mass production, and massive retailers. The retail world moved from personalized products for localized, niche markets to mass-produced products for mass markets. Mass marketers thrive on "must-have" items - huge volumes of single styles, sold across many market segments to an audience of consumers eager to have the item they saw advertised in mass media, and which, in turn are produced in great scale and efficiency. This strategy worked. Until it didn’t.
