Cara Quilts Basic Charity Challenge

Happy Sunday!

Today I want to share a “feel good” opportunity.

Canadian blogger Cara Wilson from Cara Quilts is challenging readers to donate basic items such as toothpaste, soap, deodorant, makeup, hand sanitizer, shampoo, disposable razors, and tissues to a local homeless shelter or domestic violence shelter.

Those who donate and share a picture of their donated items on her Flickr group will be eligible for prizes in a giveaway. The drawing will be held on February 29 (leap day), 2012.
Here is the link to Cara’s blog post, explaining more details about the giveaway.

I’ve been crazy busy during this first “peak” of tax season, and I’m still presiding over 20 or more administrative hearings per week and drafting decisions and orders for my day job, and I’ve been delighted to have 24 Etsy orders so far in January (I’d expected a bigger slump), so my blog posts will be shorter and less frequent. I still try to follow many of my favorite bloggers, and I’m so grateful my little blog is back to near normal after the scary crash earlier this month.

  1. What a great idea to support a worthy cause. Thanks for sharing the link.

  2. What an awesome idea. I love this giveaway.

  3. This is a great idea!
    Congrats on your awesome sales in January!

  4. Sounds like a great charity, I send a check every month to our local Victory Kitchen...they provide a hot meal daily, seven days a week to anyone who wants to eat. No I.D., or proof of income needed, if you are hungry, you are welcome to come eat. But sometimes we forget that people need every day items for cleanliness and hygiene, and it sounds like that charity is one that recognizes and helps fulfill that need.

  5. Great idea.
