I Finally Dropped the Toys for Strangers!


Here are the two little chickies I made for the toy society toys for strangers project! I'm finishing stuff like crazy and crossing things off my list. Yay! I bagged them up according to the directions and took Wolf out to drop them. I'm trying to teach him a lesson in giving by having him give toys to strangers on his birthday.


I let him choose the locations. He first chose a low-income apartment house complex and we tied it to a fence. Some ladies across the street were watching us and when we left I saw one of them head over there! Next he really wanted to put one at his old preschool, so we did, though we were watched by a gaggle of kids in the front window. As we got in the car the owner came out with about seven kids and was reading it. I yelled, "it's safe!" and she seemed relieved. I didn't hang around to see how she'd split one toy among them all!

Yay for paying it forward!

People are so suspicious nowadays, it's getting difficult to do an anonymous good deed!! Good for you for persevering.

That's true juliette, I actually considered that when I decided where to drop them. I decided against inside a library or something because I didn't want people to think I was "abandoning a package". Good way to get arrested these days!
