Cast members from General Hospital celebrated “25 Days of Christmas” with a shopping spree at the Glendale Disney Store for Toys for Tots.

On hand were: Donnell Turner (Curtis), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), William deVry (Julian), Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina), Josh Swickard (Chase), Eden McCoy (Josslyn), Chris Van Etten (Chet) along with the series EP, Frank Valentini, and Bill Burton ( Sr. ABC VP Daytime, Sports and Syndication)

As part of the “25 Days of Christmas” celebration on Disney|ABC Television, for every new, unwrapped toy donated at a Disney store in the U.S. or online through shopDisney.com,

Disney store | shopDisney will donate $5 to Toys for Tots, up to $1 million.  The campaign runs through Saturday,  December 15, 2018.

Additionally, beginning now through December 25 in the DisneyNOW app, if a user plays a mini-game on the “25 Days of Christmas” activity page, their gameplay will “unwrap” one gift.  Once 500,000 digital gifts have been “unwrapped,” Disney will make a $25,000 donation to Toys for Tots.

Toys for Tots, a 71-year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season.  The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributedby the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime.  It is such experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community.  Last year the Marine Toys for Tots Program fulfilled the holiday hopes and dreams of 7 million less fortunate children in 800 communities nationwide.  Since 1947 over 251 million children have been assisted. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is a not for profit organization authorized by the U.S. Marine Corps and the Department of Defense to provide fundraising and other necessary support for the annual Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.  For more information, visit www.toysfortots.org

Awwwww–so sweet!! Such altruistic gestures forever hold a special place in my heart–I am all in; every year and then some. Every child needs to feel loved; and while a toy cannot replace a parent ( in many cases); the gift of a toy goes a long way. Love personified, in so many aspects. God Bless!!

On another note, and so apropos during this blessed season; I was floored to hear Sonny say, “St. Rita of Cascia”!! to Laura. WOW!!…..not too many people have heard of Santa Rita da Cascia; and her very ‘different’ life…well, except for Italians, of course. LOL. For the sake of interest; St Rita’s body is still intact after over 500 years. ….I have seen it ( in a glass case); and there is also an orphanage in her name ( Dalle Api Alle Rose–Basilica di S. Rita).
There must be a bunch of Italians writing for GH.❤️

GH Preview – Week of March 25, 2019

All roads lead to Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), and you can put Willow (Kaetlyn MacMullen) in the mix now that it has been revealed she used to be in Dawn of Day and as she confesses to Chase (Josh Swickard), that she had Shiloh’s baby.

That would mean that Willow believes the baby Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) are raising is hers with Shiloh! Willow finally admits the truth to Chase, but says that she must leave town as to not jeopardize the safety of her baby.  Chase tells her he will keep her safe and to stay in town.  Will she give their romance a fighting chance?

Meanwhile, all of Port Charles is reeling from the news that Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) knew that his serial killer twin brother, Ryan was alive and that he was treating him before his escape from Ferncliff and trading places with him.  Will Laura (Genie Francis) ever take Kevin back?  Will Ava (Maura West) continue to hope that she can end Ryan’s life herself, if he survived the fall from the bridge in Niagara Falls?

And ,something is not right with Dante’s (Dominic Zamprogna) homecoming.  We saw that he has scars and marks all over his back, which leads one to believe he was tortured while in captivity and on his mission.  Will anyone see that Dante needs help desperately?

Check out these teasers for this week’s GH’s and the latest promo for the soap below.  Then, let us know what storypoint you are looking forward to seeing the most via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Dante Comes Home; But He’s Tortured In More Ways Than One

Lante fans got their long-awaited reunion, of sorts, on Friday’s episode of General Hospital which also leaves viewers with a major cliffhanger as to what has happened to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) since his time away from his wife, family and friends.

In story, Lulu (Emme Rylan) goes into panic mode when it appears someone is breaking into her home.  When Dante walks through the door her shock turns to happiness.  She runs into his arms and they kiss.  Dante feel guilty for not being there for his wife, when she needed him most – after she was attacked by Ryan – and apologizes for leaving her and not being there to protect her.  Then, Dante gets a call from Frisco, who congratulates Dante on a job well done in terms of his assignment to bring down Raj and his undercover work.

After escaping Turkey with his father, Sonny (Maurice Benard), and heading home to Lulu, something seems off.  While they have a happy reunion, complete with making love, there is clearly a sadness in Dante’s eyes.  We get a glimpse as to why, when in bed with Lulu, the camera pans to his back and we see multiple scars on his back, which would indicate he may have been beaten while being held in captivity during his mission.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Zamprogna reveals what’s to come this week on all-new episodes of GH, which will illustrate how troubled Dante has become: “He’s trying to hide how disturbed he, in fact, is from his experience (abroad).  He’s so happy to be with his family. He missed them. He wants to be with them.  But as happy as he is to be back, there is something wrong that needs to be addressed.”

In the Sneak Peek for Monday’s episode, General Hospital released a clip, where Dante is seen and heard repeating, “I will complete the mission” and then appears to have shot Lulu.  But is this all in his head?

As viewers know, Zamprogna is back for a short run on the show, and not back full-time.  This week, also saw the talented and popular actor receiving another Daytime Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category.

So, what have you thought of Dante’s return thus far? Do you think he is suffering from PTSD … or something else? Are you happy Dom received an Emmy nod for his performances in 2018? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.   First, watch the sneak peek for tomorrow’s GH.
