Worldwide Empathy Toy Giveaway:
In 2014, The Connect Group shared FREE Empathy Toys from 21 Toys, with educators all over the world. Inspired by the late Roger Ebert's words: "I believe empathy is the most essential quality of civilization" ~ we provided Empathy Toys as a playful way of cultivating essential skills.
