Pay it Forward Fridays - Women's Shelters

You guys know the drill...go out into the world and Pay it Forward, then come back here and share it with us :) And while you're at it, come on over to the Blue Frogs Legs Community, and join in on the discussions. Because I believe the world is full of amazing people, and we should celebrate the amazing things that people are doing. Let's celebrate the positive stuff!!!

A young girl knocked at my door the other day. She was doing a school project, and was looking for toiletries and stuff which would be donated to the local women's shelter. This young girl looked no older than 12, THIS is what I am talking about. This is the stuff!!! Needless to say I joyously emptied my cupboards and gift drawers searching for relevant stuff to donate. She left here with a bag full of stuff, and a lot of my admiration. Your challenge this week is do donate some stuff to your local Women's Shelters. They usually are in need of unused toiletries and baby and kid stuff. Call and see what they may need, you may have it hanging around your place, and could be very useful to someone who needs it far worse than you!

The last song of the Pay it Forward movie was "Calling all angels" by Jane Sibery.... (this isn't her, but couldn't find it on YouTube) enjoy...
