MADISON, Wis., Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- 'Tis the season to give, and Remington is doing just that with their donation of thousands of Cool Style hair tools to Today's 17th Annual Holiday Toy and Gift Drive.  The donation will help provide gifts to needy families all over the United States, specifically for the tween-aged girls.

Remington celebrity stylist, Richard Marin, appeared on the show to announce the donation.  "We donated these tools to the toy drive specifically for the tween girls who are just starting to style their own hair and try out different looks.  These dryers and irons are high quality, full size and come in a variety of fashion-forward prints and patterns, allowing girls to express their individuality – which is really what Remington is all about, getting ready and expressing individual style!"

Drew Fiorenza, Vice President of North American Sales and Marketing at Remington, says giving back to the community is a must, "It's very important, especially during this time of year, the season of giving.  If we can make someone's life easier with our coveted styling tools and help them get ready with confidence, we are more than happy to do so.  And since the Remington Cool Style collection is available at Target stores and, that confidence is attainable for everyone."

And Remington continues the giving and good cheer with a "12 Days of Giveaways" promotion that will launch December 14, 2010 on their Facebook page, Remington Hair Care & Grooming.  For 12 days, Remington will be inviting men and women to "like" their Facebook page and asking them how they are "getting ready" for this holiday season.  One winner per day will be chosen to win an assortment of styling or grooming tools.
