Ladies if you can only afford to give used toys or clothes to the Angel Tree..

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

 Don't bother. Just don't take a tag, it's that simple. Angel tree/TFT are for people to give new toys or clothes to children who may not get much on Christmas morning. They do not want you old, worn out clothes and raggedy stuffed animals. 

EDIT: I do not (and never did) have to use Angel tree ot TFT.

I think angel tree, toys for tots and all if that should be stopped. If you can't afford a gift for your kid then they don't get anything.

 I feel very sad for your children if that is how you raise them. Around my house, we help out others and give whenever we can, we always try to do the right thing, we always help, and we are greatful to have what we now have, and feel lucky and blessed to be able to help others not just around the holidays, but whenever we can. The good feeling you get is more than worth it. This is how my children have been raised and how I was raised, how my parents were raised, and how my grandparents were raised.

I thought the angel tree and other places only took brand new things. I tried to donate to one place, forgot which one, and they said only new items... I just dropped a ton of stuff at good will though...and I STILL have to go through the girls' room.

You know what, if you're begging ,you have no right to sit there be choosy. BE GRATEFUL FOR WHATEVER YOU GET! New toys are for my kids and if I have enough money I'll give what I can.
