Celebrate the Tamagotchi Spirit with Hometown Heroes
Nominate your Hometown Hero for a $5,000 Contribution.
Just like the care and attention you gave your virtual pet, you can now be part of a group who cares about each other, who cares about the community around us, who gets involved to better the lives of others. And with our charitable contribution of $5,000 through Hometown Heroes recognition, you can be a part of the movement to support local heroes by nominating someone, maybe even yourself, who demonstrates T-L.i.f.e. values, and is making a difference every day.
