Personal Care Items

As you probably know, we collect and distribute personal items to those living out in the elements and to various shelters.  We collect and distribute these personal care items all year long.  The need for them never diminishes.  We don't count the items specifically, but always encourage folks to donate them.

You can buy bulk items, travel size items, collect items when you travel that are stocked in hotel and resort rooms.  So many folks pack their own brands that collecting them in hotels is an easy and inexpensive/free way to make a donation.

Items we've collected include:
Tooth brushes
Tooth paste
Floss
Mouth Wash
Soap
Shampoo
Hair Conditioner
Lip Gloss/Balm/Chap Stick
Lotions/cream
Tissues
Deodorant
Cotton Swabs
Hand Sanitizer
Body Wipes
Razors

Items we've not specifically named in the past include Tylenol, sunblock, ethnic hair care products, and feminine hygiene products.  After researching a bit on the net, I've read about the rather large need for feminine hygiene products.  Tampons and pads of varying sizes are always in short supply.  Can you imagine the lack of being able to clean up and change to clean dry products?  Can you imagine how dirty you'd feel, how deflated you'd feel?  I truly can not.  I read several articles and wanted to share them here, but was unable to share a link or do a copy and paste, apparently the way the articles were coded prevented my doing that.  So as we get rolling in this new year, please keep this in mind.

Donating personal care items is something everyone can do, you don't need to be a knitter or crocheter to be able to help.

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.

  1. I would hate to be without my personal care items. I hate to have dirty hair. I do hope some people who do not knit or crochet can send some personal care items.

  2. I would hate to be without my personal care items too SSeger. I wish I could afford to provide more to B&B because I think that is just as important as the hats, scarves, gloves, etc.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
