Over the past couple of years, I have taught you various means and methods for obtaining free shampoo, deodorant, etc. As we have been talking this week about domestic violence, now is the time to put those skills to good use.
Gather up your samples. If you are like me, you have piles of them. Sort out any hygienic supplies, anything for children, vitamins, and even makeup samples.
Find the donation point for your local women's shelter. It more than likely won't be located at the shelter as those locations remain hidden for safety. Bag or box up your samples and donate them to the women's shelter in your area.
A majority of these women and children flee with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. They are in need of the most basic of supplies. Any donation is appreciated and will be used. If possible, also sort through your children's old toys and books. Give a child in a shelter something they can call their very own.
You don't have to be rich to help. Even the least among us have aid to offer a women in need.
