Giving Brightens Someone'S Life



If you or your partner travel, you probably pick up some of the toiletries in your room When my DW & I travel, we take all of the shampoo, soap, hair covers, conditioners, etc.We don't use them, but put them in a box when we get home Many Women's and Children's shelters have a continuing need for these simple items. They buy institutional supplies, but women get just a little burst of self esteem when they have their own set of NICE soap, etc. We've been taking boxes of these items for the pas7

More Information:

10 years, whenever we get a full box. Every time the ladies at the office see us coming they are excited & want to know what we brought them this time Personally, I don't understand domestic abuse & can't abide the thought of abuse from the husband - or the wife
We just try to help ease the pain.

  • I am so glad to hear that you do this and I encourage others to also do the same thing. I work for a non-profit and we use the samples donated to us to give to people who are in shelters, a state psych inpatient unit, clients who don't have means to purchase these necessary hygiene products and the homeless. Great works! - by CAJUNGANNY
