Santa's arrival is fast approaching, and that likely means a brand new batch of toys for your little one.

If you're looking to make room in the toy box before Christmas, you can donate your child's gently-used plastic toys to Second Chance Toys, a non-profit dedicated to helping children in need and the environment.

Started in 2006 by then-high school student Sasha Lipton, Second Chance Toys has donated close to 150,000 toys to date -- keeping them out of landfills and sending them into the arms of children who really need them.
