Brantley Gilbert Gives Toys For Tots $10.5 Million

(Radio.com) Brantley Gilbert is accustomed to playing for arenas full of country fans. This year, he's playing Santa Claus to the countless children served by the Marine Toys for Tots charity.

Just in time for Christmas, the singer-songwriter announced that he will partner with toy manufacturer Bendon to make an unprecedented $10.5 million donation.

"Growing up in rural Georgia, I know that sometimes Christmas isn't a time of joy for some kids and our contribution might be all they receive this year so I really wanted our donation to matter," Gilbert said. "I'm honored the folks and Bendon understood why I wanted to work with them and Toys for Tots." Read more here.
