Charity Challenge: Paying It Forward On A Budget + Call For Donations To Benefit Tornado Victims

Toothpaste. Ya can’t live without it and yet for those of us couponers, our houses are filled with it quickly from drugstore rebates. As I aim to only keep 1/3 of what I get and donate the rest, I figured it was time for a clean out which means it must be time for……..

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

This week I want to ask you to dig around in your stockpile and put anything you could donate on one side for Convoy of Hope who are working directly with the victims of the recent tornados. Can you spare some shampoo? Lotions? Toothbrushes? Cleaning supplies? They need it desperately! Please do the challenge and also grab anything else you think could help and either bring it to our dropbox or contact Convoy of Hope for one near you.

Last week I challenged everyone to clear out their candy and donate it to a food pantry in their neighborhood or drop it off at Kolas Bookstore, Highland.

Who did it? I hope you joined me to help out those in dire need.

Now for this week’s challenge:

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……

If you live outside Northwest Indiana/Chicagoland, please donate to your nearest food pantry. The one that supports your community. If you live around NWI Kolas Christian Bookstore in Highland, IN is acting as a drop-off point for us. We’re hoping to get more drop-offs for the future but this is our first. There will be a tote in there and when it’s full we’ll co0rdinate with Love Inc who works with local people in dire need and drop it off.

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.
