Here's a tale that will melt cold, black Grinch-esque hearts everywhere: Over the weekend, a man purchased the entire toy section for an undisclosed amount at the Fort Collins Goodwill in Denver, Colorado. The store allowed kids to take home one toy (or book...) each throughout the day according to Vanessa Clark, Goodwill of Denver's director of public relations. Clark kept the man's anonymity and did not disclose the amount of his check, but she did note that he had done the same thing for the past few years leading up until Christmas. How Beyoncé of him.
