A last festive reminder

I'd forgotten about this little guy when I was clearing away my sparse Christmas decorations last week, perhaps because this little teddy isn't really part of them. I fell for the beside-the-register trap when getting a hot chocolate, dropped a couple of euro into the collection plate and helped myself to this lapel pin as proof of contribution. I found him on my jacket this morning.

He reminds me of a story I heard recently. A notoriously mean-minded individual makes a point of saving all this sort of thing so that when collection time comes around again he can put them on his coat and so avoid giving money.
