My neighbors are good friends of my wifes and I. They have a son and daughter. The son is about 8 years old, and borderline autistic, whatever that means. Anyway, he's a fun kid (which is a huge deal seeing as how I dont usually like kids, lol),and he's a HUGE transformers fan. so for his birthday and xmas, we usually get him transformers. This year I plan on trying to find him a amazon unicron or primus. Anyway, the dad has been out of work for over 2 years, and the mom has only been able to find substitute teaching jobs during the school year. They are having some huge financial problems lately, to the point they are having to borrow against their 401k with a hardship loan. I have been giving some of my transformers that I don't want as much anymore, to him. Yesterday I gave him one of my kreo sets. And he was SO happy! I know alot of people are having troubles right now, but I haven't really known anyone that has. It kind of seems more real knowing someone going through it.
