Stepping out for a fun-filled event, Lucy Hale attended the 2012 Duracell Power Holiday Smiles Campaign Kick-Off in New York City yesterday (November 20).
The “Pretty Little Liars” hottie had a blast mingling with the children at PS 64, sporting a simple, sexy white blouse with black trousers.
During the course of the shindig, Lucy had the opportunity to present over 100 public school kids with brand new toys from the Toys for Tots organization.
Hale told press, “I think everyone at some point in their life is searching for some way to give back. I’ve been so blessed with so much and I’ve been given a lot of opportunities, and this one just really spoke to me and I absolutely had to be a part of it. I was lucky enough to have a great holiday season and to be given gifts when I was growing up, and I know that a lot of people aren’t financially put in that position.”
“I think, as a kid, there’s nothing worse than having to wake up with nothing to show for it, so I wanted to just be a voice for this, and inspire a lot of people to get involved. Basically it’s a sweepstakes, and it’s really easy, it’s really simple. It’s not like you have to really go out of your way to do it. You sign on to their Facebook page, which is facebook.com/Duracell, and you enter the sweepstakes, and for every entry, they donate a battery to Toys For Tots to power up the toys that you saw today to give to the kids. Also, Thanksgiving to December 20, every hour of every day they’re giving away one of those toys to someone, and I can’t do the math in my head, but that’s a lot of toys that they’re giving away. So you give a little, you take a little. For me that’s the most rewarding part, I couldn’t ask for anything greater than to see 150 kids that excited.”
