A Back-to-School tree in my hometown. Restoring faith in humanity: The sign says to take what one needs. This yard also has a take-a-book, leave-a-book cabinet. How awesome are these people?
Each year our kids must choose ten old toys to put in their Santa bags. These must be toys in decent shape that other kids would actually want. We leave the bags under our tree on Christmas Eve. Santa takes the old toys back to the North Pole to fix them up he leaves new toys in the bag. Great way to declutter, recycle old toys, and teach the kids about giving.
