Fifteen Minutes

Hello all! If you have fifteen minutes and would like to learn something new as well as have a chance to make a difference have a look at the following!

Toy bank is an NGO that takes old toys as donations and then re-distributes them to needy children. What a fantastic idea! The only criteria that they have is that the toy should be in good condition! Toys that promote violence are not allowed ( so no guns ) and neither are those that have a gender bias ( so no Barbie dolls ).

It's such a beautiful idea and just shows what a big impact such a small effort can make. To know more, go here ! And go ahead, find the toys that you no longer use and pass them on to the kids who will give them a whole new lease of life!

P.S. : Also, did you know that " Play is so important to optimal child development that it has been recognized by the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights as a right of every child."

I didn't! I just learnt that from their website!
