During the week of December 15th, ABC’s daytime drama General Hospital participated in Disney/ ABC’s “Share the Joy” campaign with “Toys for Tots” by integrating the charity into their storyline for the holidays.
The moment which aired on today’s Thursday, December 18th episode showed Nurse Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) donating a toy in the “Toys for Tots” box. GH also decided to take the initiative a step further by having the cast and crew donate toys to the “Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.”
GH Executive Producer Frank Valentini and the cast presented the toys to the marines yesterday (December 17) at the GH studio in Los Angeles during the series holiday party. The charity’s purpose really resonated with the cast, especially the child actors. In fact, nine year old Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer Cassadine) decided that he would take the $112.00 dollars he had saved in his piggy bank to help buy presents that were donated to “Toys for Tots.”
