I noticed an abundance of plush toys during my visits to Anthropologie over the weekend. Very soft plushies but kind of odd for Anthro I thought. I was confused until I saw a sign explaining that the plushies were available to purchase and donate to a local children’s charity.
What a nice idea! There were several different price points to choose from and animals ranging from ducks to cows to elephants to lions to monkeys to…well, you get the picture. I chose two small plushies to donate. I was given a tag to write a special message on (I was at a loss so I just wrote Enjoy! Something non-denominational.) and then the plushies were placed in a large basket behind the cash register.
The cashier told me that each time the large basket filled up they delivered the toys to a local charity to give away for the holidays. I melted. Each Anthro I was at had a different cause listed on the sign by the large basket. It’s a great way to be charitable this season and you’ll make a child smile.
