Let’s face it, your kids are adorable and your friends and family want to spend money on them. The holidays can be so overwhelming that many families have a ritual of donating the majority of their children’s toys in early December to make room for what’s to come. If your toy chest is overflowing and you can’t imagine what you would do with another truck or doll, how about asking your loved ones to contribute to your child’s college fund this year?
