Hello, I'm trying to put together shoeboxes of unused toiletries & make up to be given as gifts to the women who will be using refuge centres over Xmas, I'm aiming for 40 boxes for my local refuge in Kent, but if I managed to gather resources for more, I'd be delighted to donate them further afield. I'd like to ask people to clear out their bathroom cabinets of last years unwanted shower gel gift set or even just toothpaste, unused of course, stick them in a box and then PM me as I can arrange a courier - Hermes have agreed to help out.
Your donations will passed on to women who often arrive at refuge centres in just the clothes they stand up in and will help them put on something other than just their brave face. Thank you.
Have you tried asking local hotels and B&Bs if they'll donate some of their little bottles of shampoo and soaps? Even a small family run one could possibly donate enough to make a difference to a whole lot of women.
