[6/365] Magical Bench Monday

For two years, Girl Scout troops in Illinois collected discarded plastic bottle caps with one purpose in mind: to make sure every child has someone to play with on the playground.

With more than 300 pounds of bottle caps collected, the girls made “buddy benches.” The benches are in two area parks and decked out with signs that tell children to sit on a bench to let others know they need a playground friend.
