This inventive dad, Bryan Ware from San Francisco had the brilliant idea for what to do with left over crayons. He came up with his idea in 2011 when he was celebrating his birthday at a restaurant with his two sons, while they were eating the waiter brought his sons crayons to play with, and Bryan asked what happens to these crayons when the kids are done with them. The answer started the Crayon Initiative, they are all thrown out to the garbage. Now he melts them down and creates new crayons that he delivers to hospitals all over the city.
