Oasis

This year, i'd like to do what i can to help others.  i took the time to find out what kind of items i could donate to the local women's center which helps victims of domestic abuse rebuild their lives.  it turns out they are in desperate need of everything.  so, i had the idea to start a box and fill it up over the year.  every time i go to the store, i'll pick something up and at the end of the year, donate the entire box.  this way, it's easy for me to help without breaking the bank.  we are, after all, a family of 5 (soon to be 6) with one income. 

i'd like to ask for your help.  i'd like to get a box together to donate at the beginning of march.  i'm asking as many people as i can to send me a small household item that i can put in the box.  items that can be donated are personal care items, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, soap, tampons.  any kind of baby or children's items, diapers, wipes, lotions, washes, t-shirts, toys.  household items, such as toilet paper, paper towels, cleaners, dish soap, laundry soaps.  clothing items can also be donated. 
i'm not asking you to spend a ton of money.  all i'm asking for is one item.  you don't even need to spend anything if you have something at home already that you don't need anymore, a toy or a shirt that no longer fits. 

if you are interested in helping, you can leave a comment or send me an email at drnknhousewife@gmail.com and i will send you the address where you can mail your item.  any help you can give me is appreciated.  even if all you can do is share this post on facebook, twitter or link to it on your blog.  this means a lot to me, especially since i realized how badly they need these items. 

i will collect items over the next month and deliver the box to the women's oasis center on march 1st.
