I donate all clothes, toys, and other goods to a local foundation that has a collection bin near my house; they raise funds for people with special needs. Every year I also give food to the local food bank so they can make Christmas baskets.
I also believe in randomly paying it forward - from giving a set of almost new tires to my next door neighbor to buying flowers for my mom, just for fun. Treating the girls at the office to coffee etc.
