I honestly can't say that something has come up yet that was a real lesson on it. But this year I'm thinking of having him pick a few of his toys to donate.

I have talked to her a lot about giving, and donating.  However this year we are going to do something new and that would be taking 1 gift that she gets and giving it to another family/child.

We donate food & items for our local food pantry and bring them down as a family.

We always cleaned out the toys before Christmas and donated when they were younger.

That's great. Donating food to a pantry is one way to help year around.

I've never known any place around here that takes used toys, there are lots of toy drives but they want them to be new in box and stuff. But I recently found out about a place that does used.

Yes. I always tell them its better then to recieve. We give our old coats to coats for kids. We also go out and buy gifts to donate to other children.
