Monday Mix: Sales and Charity

By Voxy  

The Word "Give" made of Toddler's shoes, Santa Cruz, California by Wonderlane.First, the charity.

A lovely charitable contribution (at any time of year, but particularly now) is the purchase or donation of shampoo, conditioner, body washes, shower scrubbies, cosmetics, skincare, and perfumes to women’s shelters or other organizations in your area. Products should be unopened, but need not be new; if you purchased an extra tube of that mascara you really used to like and now don’t, that’s perfectly donate-able, so long as it is unopened and in its original packaging. The same goes for any cosmetics gifts you receive this year that you don’t really want — there are women out there whose spirits will really be lifted by a new lipstick or a nice-smelling shampoo. It might sound like a trivial gift, but it really isn’t; these little things go a long way towards making people in terrible situations feel cared for and feel better about themselves, which is pretty much the biggest gift you can give anyone.
