If you’re keen visitor to McDonald’s, you’ll know about its recurring Monopoly promotion that runs in a number of countries across the globe.

You’ll often score a free food voucher from the fast food chain if you’re lucky, but while you might be tempted to hoard them for future binges, perhaps donating them to the homeless isn’t a bad idea.

“Why not put your tokens in a jar and take them to an area where you know there are people less fortunate then [sic] yourself,” he wrote. “I did it today and if all of us do it together we can be part of a small change.”

“I know it’s still consuming junk food, but it can teach our kids and ourselves a lesson in giving with no taking,” he said in a comment on the viral post.

Arguably, it’s also one way to eat McDonalds and feeling less guilty just.
