Charity Challenge: Our Tenth Challenge

It’s time for our weekly Charity Challenge. Every Tuesday I’ll issue a challenge for the week. Your mission if you choose to accept is simply to go do it!

Although the need seems HUGE and the challenge daunting, we CAN help. Don’t be frightened by the huge numbers, we’re gonna take it slow and pay it forward.

Ready? This is gonna be:
* simple
* convenient
* and of course……..cheap

I gotta say: This is the most un-talked about/un commented on thing around here :) and I’d love to see that change this week. Would you consider joining me this week as we hit our tenth week??!

Tenth Challenge: Body lotion

2 Easy ways to do it:

1) Grab the FREE sample of Nivea touch Of Cascade and donate.
2) Head to Menards and grab the bottles of Vaseline Sheer lotion. Keep some and donate some. Can somebody say win-win?!

We’re wanting to fill local food pantries with all kinds of goodies. It’s heart wrenching to think that people who 5 years ago would never have needed support find themselves in line for bread.

This week it’s simple: Please donate some lotion. While you’re out shopping add a bottle of lotion or something to your cart for someone else. If you’re in NWI or South Chicagoland, you can drop it off at one of these spots.

Also: The drive for some sheets/towels/blankets or items like that is still on. Either gently used or new. The people at Love Inc. we were told that they often have people who don’t even have a bed to sleep on. They not only want to give them a bed but the sheets too. It’s just a part of restoring dignity. I never thought of that but am sure glad they did! That’s why this week I’m encouraging you to grab blankets or sheets to donate. There are people in our community with desperate need to so please check your house!

If you live outside Northwest Indiana/Chicagoland, please donate to your nearest food pantry. I know they can use this. The food pantry that supports your community.

Sound awesome? I think so! In fact the 5 of us who’ve planned this think so and we’re supppppppper excited to give back.

Head on over to our Facebook event page and let us know how you did. We’d be really encouraged by stories or ideas.
