LA Ad Execs Reveal Favorite Xmas Childhood Memories for thinkLA, Toys for Tots

Nonprofit collaborative thinkLA has a fun social media campaign promoting their Holiday Gala this Thursday, Dec. 5. The campaign features LA ad executives — like Joe Baratelli (featured above), EVP/CCO at RPA (well, actually, it’s all RPA at the moment)– sharing their favorite holiday memories in 15 second long videos. We’ve included a few of our favorites, but you can check out the rest here, or follow thinkLA on Facebook or Twitter. The videos are a quick, fun way to get in the holiday spirit, if that’s your sort of thing. And this is all being done for a good cause.

According to the parties involved, the LA advertising community and thinkLA put together the second largest T0ys for Tots drive in Southern California (around 1,000 toys). Toy collection bins are making the rounds at agencies this week, and will continue collecting toys until December 17th. But the biggest Toys for Tots push will come during the Holiday Gala this Thursday. So check out the holiday videos (Lisa Herdman and J. Barbush are featured after the jump), and if you’re in Southern California this Thursday head on over to the Holiday Gala with something to donate to Toys for Tots. We hear thinkLA throws a great party, so why wouldn’t you?
