A call for toy and household item donations has been posted to Facebook page Share Your Spare Singapore on June 6.

The post appealed for locals to donate “small/medium sized toys like cars (hotwheels), stuffed toys, barbie dolls and McD (McDonald’s) happy meal toys.”

The page is run by Adrian Soco.

Share what you can

But if you don’t have toys, you can still contribute.

Items like stationery sets, lunch boxes, and water bottles are also welcome.

According to the post, the toys will be distributed to less fortunate children in the Philippines in August.
