Day 9 -Toys For Tickets

Have you heard about this program? In Red Deer, Alberta, people who receive parking tickets from 1 November to 6 December can pay with toys. Toys, people!

Apparently this program was launched 7 years ago and they have received approximately 3,300 to date so that less fortunate kids wake up to a Christmas present. Doesn't that just make you feel all warm and cuddly inside?

Can we do this here, Montreal?

(Thanks to George Stroumbolopoulos for posting the link on twitter the other day.)
