Oh my goodness. Jody just emailed me about The Toy Society and I’m pretty sure I must join immediately. Basically it works like this: You make a handmade toy, then leave it anonymously in a public place for someone to find and enjoy — with a note attached that says “Take me home, I’m yours.” There’s absolutely no expectation of reward or acknowledgment. It’s just a sweet way to put a little kindness out there in the world. You can read all about it here.
Started in Australia, there have been over 1200(!) toy drops so far. I’m putting this on my list of things to do with my kids this summer. What do you guys think? Would you ever participate in something like this?
