1) Catsitting counts, doesn't it?

2) Usually not. I know Kishon's "Chocolate on a voyage" (Schokolade auf Reisen) and I don't want to end there. In some cases though, where the gift was clearly something somebody bought as a set, readily wrapped in cellophane, I just passed it on to someone equally anonymous.

3) No. Kill me if I ever suggest that.

voluneertism was my career
i am still active with my local Lions Club

regift - again not so much - there was a time when i was involved in many "small gift exchange"
fancy candles were a favorite gift
i had more than i knew what to do with so i passed them on

my favorite regift story
I got a fish shaped candle - very cute from A
a year or so later i did a sea themed presents to B
B did not know A and lived in a different state
B and I were old friends and put together elaborated packages of small gifts
a few years latter - the fish swam back

bingo no!
my only contact with bingo - i used to play it with my grandmother

1. In an offical sort of capacity: I just started volunteering as the homeless advocate chair on the local city housing advisory committee. Unofficially; I do a lot of "secret santa" this time of year for people I know won't have a Christmas otherwise.

2. Rarely, but it's happened a few times if I get something that's really nice but doesn't fit me or I'm allergic to it.

3. I've walked pasted them but never gone in.

1. Yes, local Farm Bureau 'Farm Day' that teaches children (and adults) where their food comes from.
2. Occasionally. We once participated in the extend family's tradition of re-gifting the Christmas card. The same Christmas card was passed around for over twenty years. Each family member would sign their name & add a little note inside the card. It finale ended when one of the Scrooges who had married into the family threw the card away when they received it; loudly complaining about the piece of trash they had received in the mail.
3. No. Years ago there was one nearby that the police would raid once a month. (They were illegal at the time.) Once the local laws changed to legalize them, it permanently shutdown.
