Today the Plinky Guys have thrown an indeed new topic “Unaffordable Toy” from our own childhood. I feel its a waste of time thinking what i did not have way back when i was a kid. Instead how great it would be to donate toys for someone who are just like you, craving for some good fluffy toys in their childhood.
Time and Tide definitely waits for none. So your childhood can never be brought back but we can definitely help other kids have the privilege to own some good toys.
Here I am listing out few online sites which are doing really good job for bringing smiles on the faces of those kids.
The journey began on August 15th, 2004. Shweta Chari, an Electronics Engineer founded Toybank with a vision of reaching out to children through fun and play using toys. A small idea that started in a small restaurant in Bombay has over the years gathered momentum with the help and support of friends and volunteers from all across Bombay. Within a shortest span of time and very minimal resources, Toybank is bringing smiles on thousands of deprived faces. Toybank acts as a leveler of the society by taking toys from those that can give and distributing them to the ones in need.
In a way Toybank attempts to prove the belief of John.F.Kennedy, ‘If the free society cannot help the many that are poor, it can never save the few who are rich.’
Toybank honestly dreams to place a toy in the hands of every child in India and the world. The toy shapes the psyche of the children, so utmost care is taken to give only unbiased and morally correct toys to children. (Source : Toy Bank)

Crescent Bay Doll Fanciers understands what it means to love your collection of dolls but need to trim the collection down. We also understand that some of us grow out of our dolls and want to find a new home for them. If you have a collection you are no longer interested in maintaining, or you are trying to disperse a family member’s doll collection, or you would like to make a doll donation to a Jr. club or a non- profit organization, or you’d just like to get rid of your dolls, let us help you. Don’t just dump your dolls, and before considering donating to a Good Will or Salvation Army, though worthy organizations, why not donate to an organization or people that can appreciate your dolls and is about dolls!
As a non-profit organization any donation you make to the club may be tax deductible. We can help relieve you of the burden of dolls you may have acquired but are no longer of interest to you. We are always willing to accept donations of dolls for our club collection, charitable endeavors, and to share with our Jr. Collectors and members just starting out in collecting. We can also help you with yard or estate sales of your collections, and our own members are always looking to expand their collections. (Source: Website)
