"I picked Hello Kitty stuffed toys because I was really big on Japanese culture as a teenager and it was huge on Myspace back then, haha! And let's be honest, Hello Kitty is so major."

"My wish for the New Year is that no child should go hungry or excluded for whatever reason - they all deserve a good education and a good healthcare."

"There are a lot of families in crisis these days in both developed and underdeveloped countries. It’s sad because toys shouldn’t be a luxury; every child should be able to play with them and be inspired."

"I care about the LGBT youth and homeless youth a lot, and I always tell young people I meet that it’s important to be informed, learn about what’s going on in the world and stand up for what you believe in and help those in need."

In the true spirit of the holidays, The Society and our talents are giving back through #ToysforTots to gift children with brand new toys so all kids can enjoy a happy holiday season. From Dec. 1st to the 25th, we will feature individual talents daily on our Instagram with what they’ve chosen for gifting, with posts highlighting a few for our blog as well! Check out who we’ve featured so far here.

Our fifth highlighted talent and generous giver is Andreja Pejic, an avid advocate for the LGBTQ and homeless youth community, who by sharing her own journey has inspired many young people today. Click on the slideshow to learn more about her #TSMforTots story!
