Donations for Tornado Victims

I’ve been working on a box of items to donate for the victims of the Oklahoma tornadoes and have been remiss on posting the information for all of you. Here goes:

“The Southgate Baptist Church at 740 SW 4 in Moore is seeking items to help with relief efforts: body soap, adult socks, children’s socks, underwear of all sizes, men’s shoes, hand sanitizer, wipes, plastic bins, denture cream, work gloves, towels and washcloths, heavy-duty trash bags, sun block, aloe vera, water, Gatorade, deodorant, feminine hygiene products, push brooms, rakes, shovels, basic medical supplies. For information, call Sarah Marshall at 627-0558.”

There are lots of scams going on, but I’ve done the background work on it; this is a real church and donations are truly helping the victims. I know it’s hard to know how you can help, so I wanted to share the information with you.

I’ve sent a large box of everything I had on hand and a few that are from my own basket. I also did some cordial soaps (the really small soaps that I uses to sell in bulk when I first started) that will be perfect for individual use. I’m not sure how they feel about shower/bath gel, but I wanted something fun for the kids, so there are a bunch of Fruity Patootie Gels enclosed (they’re pretty quick to make, so I couldn’t resist). I figure the bottles will be handy too since several people can use it without worry. I am so glad that I could do something to really help, especially when my business has been rather slow. Anyway, I thought it would be kind of neat to show some pics too. You know how obsessed I am with my phone’s camera, so of course I took pictures. *grin*

Um, the bath salts didn’t go, by the way. It was a bit overboard and couldn’t fit. Every last centimeter was filled in that box with soaps, scrubs, and lotions – I couldn’t even add peanuts for cushioning! Lol. Other than that, it all went in. I totally love all of the colors. Hopefully they can bring a little happiness to the users on top of the basic use. I want to give a shout out to the Bathe Happy blog for the idea of sending soap for the victims.

Have a great weekend!
