The Office Gift Exchange with a Difference.

Christmas time is fast approaching and if your office is like many you may be having a Secret Santa gift exchange. Where I work we exchange gifts too, but we do things a little different. As with the usual exchange each of us picks out a name from a hat. Instead of buying each other some silly little trinket we purchase a toy we think they may have enjoyed as a child. The toys we exchange give us all a good laugh and when we are done we collect up all the toys and donate them to a local charity. It makes us all feel so good knowing that there will be gifts under the tree for those children in our community less fortunate than ourselves.
