I donate to toys for tots every year. i go out and buy a few toys through the year on clearance for under $5 and give them to the mail person when they come around for the donations.

We help out but prefer doing things a bit more directly....a good example...I volunteer 20-30 hours a week at my son's elementary school....one of the kids at his school...the child has a terminally ill mother, Dad works long hours just trying to stay afloat...then comes home to care for the house and his sick wife...the young man has minimal clothing and even runs on short supply for basic Hygiene items...so our plan is to drop off a ummm surprise gift from Santa with things the child needs...as well as a few things the parents also might have serious need of.

wow that is so wonderful of you to do that. It is so nice to see that you not only help out at the school but also get involved with the parents and help them out. Thats a great idea to give those gifts from "Santa". It is great to see people like you out there!!!

I donated all the toys of my elder kid to an orphanage last year like bike, Pram other stuff. I do so with my daughter to her clothes were new only and she didn't wear them due to wrong cliate.They were for summers and when she was born it was kind of cold here so I gave them all to a hospital's children ward.I do so with all the unused gifts she gets.

I donate books, clothes, and money, and an agency nearby always has a clothing drive for winter coats. The local NBA teams also have food drives at their games this December.

This is wonderful!!! It is nice to see others donating not only toys but clothing and blankets as well!!! So many people dont have the right clothing for the winter months, and just being able to stay warm is a gift itself. It is a wonderful thing you are doing!!!

I collect beanie babies and have alot of dupes, going to give them away come Christmas season, love seeing kids's eyes light up and even the elderly in a nursing home. God Bless.
