WASHINGTON, DC -- Vagabond is supporting the annual ForKids Holiday Toy Drive through use of its vīv Commerce platform to enable users of the app to easily purchase toys and books for children in need.

Vagabond's vīv mobile app allows consumers to walk up a vending machine, scroll through a menu of products, review product details and make a purchase using whatever form of payment they prefer. The product then is delivered without the consumer ever touching the machine. | READ MORE

With vīv, anyone in the continental U.S. can search through a list of "high need" gifts for children of all ages and purchase toys in a matter of seconds. The Holiday Toy Drive instantly receives every order and will deliver the gifts to kids throughout the holiday season.

Those wishing to take part in the toy drive can do so through December 14. by following the instructions below:

1) Download vīv on a smartphone

2) Find and select the orange "ForKids Holiday Toy Drive" vīv tile

3) Select the toys you want to donate to kids in need and check out by using preferred payment method in the app. Sort gifts by age group by selecting "All Products."

4) Kids will be receiving the actual gifts chosen over the coming weeks!

"We're happy to have found a great organization near and dear to the Vagabond team that we can support through our technology platform," said Vagabond chief executive Michael Lovett. "Viv not only allows us to link buyers and sellers of goods in new ways, but can also be used as a force for good."
