As Christmas approached, though, a more human side to the group was evident: "wanted" postings from financially pressed gift-givers. "Wondering if anyone out there has a train set that they are not using anymore," wrote one parent. "I would love to put one under the Christmas tree for my two-year-old son." Another sought clothes or boots for a teenage neighbor, "so he will have something under the tree to open."

If you have any thing you're looking to get rid of, including actual baskets, please let me know."    (end of article)
