Marine guard ignores little boy, then people notice what he does with his left hand


Toys for Tots was established in 1947 by reservist Major Bill Hendricks. It is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve that provides toys to children from families who cannot afford to buy them gifts during the most joyful time of the year.

This program aims to gather and give new, unwrapped toys to underprivileged children during Christmas.

The Foundation offers the guidance, financial assistance, and backing required for effective yearly toy drives.

Back in 1997, the program launched what is one of the most beautiful commercials we’ve ever seen.


Every year during Christmas, many people share this advertisement in the hopes of spreading the joyous holiday spirit.

A Marine is approached by a young boy holding a piece of paper, asking if he is Santa Claus.

The Marine remains motionless as he focuses on his duty, seemingly unaware of the boy attempting to engage him in conversation.

The boy repeats his question and gives the guard a piece of paper. It’s actually his Christmas wish list. He hopes that his wishes will come true this season.

To the astonishment and joy of everyone, the guard accepts the boy’s list without even looking at him.

The advertisement aims to increase awareness about the significance of the Toys For Tots mission. It serves as a reminder that some children may not receive any presents, and emphasizes that each of us can contribute to improving a child’s life.
