Point being that teachers aren't going through gifts tossing them out and saying 'cr@p, lame, cr@p'. I agree that it's the thought that counts and love gifts that show thought. I was responding to some of the other posters who said they thought teachers would prefer something for themselves (chocolates, candles) to a charity gift. Even a drawing or note with no gift is appreciated. It's just nice to know that we've made some impact.
