Giving Away an Arm and a Leg

In From Guns to Urns, People Donate Wacky Things to South Florida Charities, the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel tells of many strange gifts that charities in South Florida have received over the years.  Such gifts include urns (and yes, that’s with ashes), a missile launcher, prostheses, and dentures.  One gift – a hand grenade – prompted a call to the bomb squad.   Charities speculate that people responsible for clearing family members’ houses hand over boxes with little idea of their contents.
