Olympic thoughts

I live in Vancouver, British Columbia.  Host of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic games.

I was talking with a neighbour this morning about the athletes, coaches, fans and equipment that will be coming in and out of the airport during February 2010.

It occurred to me that a lot of these athletes get donated clothing, accessories and sports equipment from their sponsors.  Wouldn’t it be nice if they donated it to local organizations instead of lugging it back home?  How many kids (and parents) would appreciate donated clothing and equipment to help bear the cost of being part of their favourite sport?  Imagine the advantages our school sports programs would have to receive free items to boost their struggling programs?

Perhaps this is already done?  Dont know.  Just a thought though.
