Brantley Gilbert has aligned with Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, as well as children’s activity product producer Bendon, Inc., to help kids this holiday season. Bendon Book Publishing International made a $10.5 million donation in children’s books to supplement the Marines’ annual distribution of Christmas gifts for at-risk children and youths.

“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. I’m honored the folks and Bendon understood why I wanted to work with them and Toys for Tots,” says Brantley. “Bendon’s books have some pretty cool heroes and lessons for all ages like Batman, Superman and Clifford the Big Red Dog to Disney, Peanuts and some of my favorites, Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. Whether a kid is into Barbie or Star Wars, I hope we’ve given a bit of fun and inspiration.”

“The holidays are a tough period of time for many families, and if we are able to bring a little happiness to a child with a gift which they may not have been otherwise given, than that’s a success,” says Bendon CEO Ben Ferguson. “We can not be more excited to partner with Brantley Gilbert on this donation. Brantley clearly supports and honors our military and his generosity and charitable work prompted me to align Bendon’s donation with him to the Marine Toys For Tots Foundation.”

Brantley Gilbert will return to Europe for dates on his Black Out Tour early next year, including shows in Manchester, London, and Birmingham, and in Glasgow, Scotland.
