  • this is such an excellent aid to guide us in putting together a package of things that will really be helpful under different circumstances
  • Wow, so many people in need. Thanks for the list of things to donate to each charity - I would have never thought of toiletries
  • I love the idea of doing this for a shelter. Instead of giving something up this year for Lent our kids are giving back!
  • Great post- even though a lot of people are feeling stressed financially nowadays, this is a good reminder that you can still give back without breaking the bank! I love being able to help others, and it's a wonderful lesson to teach your kids (and everyone else!) that a little can go a long way.
  • these are some great suggestions! You can also buy lots of these items with coupons and on sale for next to nothing! Another way to help is by adding on just a dollar to your total at your local supermarket and it goes toward local food banks!
