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.”

Jobs, the Apple visionary who died in 2011 at age 56, delivered a speech that resonated far beyond the Stanford audience, with a masterful mix of personal anecdotes, sparks of insight and universally applicable pieces of wisdom.

3D Printed Dinner & Neckwear

Dinner Is Printed By A. J. JACOBS - New York Times
THE hype over 3-D printing intensifies by the day. Will it save the world? Will it bring on the apocalypse, with millions manufacturing their own AK-47s? Or is it all an absurd hubbub about a machine that spits out chintzy plastic trinkets? I decided to investigate. My plan: I would immerse myself in the world of 3-D printing. I would live for a week using nothing but 3-D-printed objects — toothbrushes, furniture, bicycles, vitamin pills — in order to judge the technology’s potential and pitfalls.

It would cost me a mere $50,000 or so. Unless I was going to 3-D print counterfeit FabergĂ© eggs for the black market, I’d need a Plan B. Which is how I settled on the idea of creating a 3-D-printed meal. I’d make 3-D-printed plates, forks, place mats, napkin rings, candlesticks —…
