It’s like a fantastic twist on the “random act of kindness” gesture! I’m definitely going to do this too!

People, the entire world is not evil!
Having dropped 4 toys my self in the last two years (1 was acknowledged as found) I certainly hope my toys were happily received and not thought to be cocaine-laced!

As others have noted….donating them to a children’s hospital/fire dept./shelter/etc. would be great!

Then they could distribute the toys.

Some kind soul dropped off flowers on Tuesday night on my front door. I have no idea who it was but it made my day. I’m thinking of doing a secret flower society

On Valentine’s Day I ran to a bunch of houses and left candy and other little gifts. So much fun to think of the look on their faces when they opened the door!

Of course if I could make toys, then I would probably just donate them to the women’s shelter or something. But I love the concept!

BUT, I would love to do it. This may be our excuse to finally finish our Black Apple dolls.
