Why just altered toys?

I find it disheartening that those with 'more' should give those with 'less' their repaired leftovers. My suggestion would be that we spring for a new toy for the 'less fortunate'. This is not directed exclusively toward the perceived 'affluent'. During this time we are all feeling an economic pinch. This should breed some humility into all walks of life. If one feels they want, and are able to give, then I would encourage all to give of their best. There will always be more gratification accompanying a level of sacrifice. A 'needy' child is smart enough to know that, again, they are receiving 'hand-me-downs'. Let's be respectful and allow them and their families a sense of their very real dignity and worth.
