I will drop off the stuff that Rach and I got today before noon. I also made some cookies for the Crisis Center's support staff.
What did you do? Remember....nothing is too small! Let me know and I will update it here as the day goes along.
Please check back so you too can see what impact ya'll have made!!
I am so excited...this is going to be an excellant Valentines day!
EDITED AT 2:10
Baby Gator dropped off her and Pooh's stuff at the Amarillo Downtown Women's shelter this afternoon. I am so damned proud of those 2 girls!
And look! Look at what Howie and his daughter did !!
Flutterby dropped off the bags of fuzzy slippers... And she threw in a huge bag of perfumy lotion and soap etc samples that she had been saving for her next shipment to the lady soldiers but this time it is going to stay local.
I dropped off mine and Rachel's stuff at the Crisis Center. They thought that pantypalooza was a hoot. They did tell me that, most of the women that they get usually only have the clothes on their backs. I asked them what sized panties did they usually need and they told me something that will always stick with me....
*Mindy, just buy the same size that you wear to donate. That way, you will always be helping someone that is alot like you.*
Maid got diapers dropped off at her Church for their intercity mission project. Teacher here at work pointed out...those too are panties!
QC got her shoes dropped off!
Yankee Transplant bought diapers (panties) for the kids at the shelter for families with HIV/AIDS.
LutheranChik and her *friend* tawonda shared our idea with her fellow lay ministry students. At least one of them was so taken with Pantypalooza that she enlisted a bunch of her friends to collect all sorts of comfort items and underwear, plus knit "magic scarves" in various colors, and they gave everything to their local women's shelter (in a metro Michigan area). Another of chik's blogmates also took off with this idea over on the West Coast.And she dropped off her gift bag of undies and hand lotion at our local women's shelter, and they were happy to get it.
little david decided to forgo the panty route. He and cat bought shampoo, soap, cocoa butter body creme, and razors and he dropped then off at the Crisis Center where a befuddled office worker seemed delighted by the idea of a man bringing by those items on Valentine's Day.
I think that this was a great success! Thank you all so very much!!
