Don't bother. Just don't take a tag, it's that simple. Angel tree/TFT are for people to give new toys or clothes to children who may not get much on Christmas morning. They do not want you old, worn out clothes and raggedy stuffed animals.
EDIT: I do not (and never did) have to use Angel tree ot TFT.
Well if the 13 year old girl we chose has to scam for socks and panties, then something is legitimately wrong. I'll take my chances.
I can't figure out why anyone would even bother with the angel tree in the first place. Have you all NOT FIGURED OUT YET that those people are just losers or scammers? They just return your shit for money anyway.
Operation Christmas Child. Google it. It's a legitimate charity that gives to those who really appreciate it.
Our local angel tree programs make the rules very clear...new unwrapped toys and clothes ONLY. There have even added a sign letting donors know that used items will be donated to local programs, but will not be given as part of the angel tree program and that anything that has holes, is missing pieces or is otherwise trash will be thrown out. They also have monitors at every drop spot who will turn people away if they are simply trying to donate bags of things with holes or that are otherwise unusable and this is because people were using these programs as a way to just get rid of stuff.
i think that as long as someone is taking the time to give to the less fortunate, no one should be complaining. im pretty sure that child would be much happier getting something rather then nothing and if you are teaching your children to be that greedy shame on you.
