(September 5, 2015) – A dad does not want crayons in restaurants don’t go to waste, so he recycles and distributes them to kids in California.

Bryan Ware does this through his non-profit “The Crayon Initiative.”

He repurposes old, unusable crayon wax into new crayons. Ware even uses a special mold for the crayons so small children and kids with special needs can grip them more easily.

The crayon initiative has donated more than 2-thousand boxes of crayons.

Ware hopes to bring them to kids in hospitals all over the country.
