Holiday Donations

I like to donate to those in need year round, but it’s especially nice to remember them during Advent. Since we live on a tight budget, couponing helps make this possible.
(1) Cheer laundry detergent
(1) Olay body wash
(2) Dove Men+Care body wash
(1) Dawn dish soap
(2) Colgate toothpaste
(2) Suave Shampoo/Conditioner
(2) Pantene Shampoo/Conditioner
(2) Oral B toothbrushes

The local parish has a giving tree during Advent. Initially, we chose a six year old boy that would like a toy for Christmas, because it would be fun and relatively easy for Gabriel and Joshua to help choose a gift (from our gift stash) for a boy of a similar age. When I was at the vigil for the Immaculate Conception, however, I decided to take a look at the tags remaining on the tree. It turned out that a sixteen year old girl asked for makeup for Christmas. Since I’ve been picking up drugstore makeup when it’s “free,” I decided that it would be perfect to help brighten her Christmas as well.
For the Boy:
(1) Sorry! Revenge card game
(1) Cars Lightening McQueen

For the Girl:
(1) Small Makeup Bag (freebie from Target that I would probably never use)
(2) Lipsmacker lip gloss
(1) Wet n’ Wild glitter nail polish
(3) Covergirl eye shadow singles
