The idea behind this important scheme is to help provide everyday essentials to Women and children who are in need in conjunction with Refuge and Women's Aid who protect the lives of thousands everyday.
I'm sure many of us can't comprehend the extent of abuse and heart ache that a lot of these women suffer. Many of them fleeing to a place of safety with nothing but the clothes on there backs.
I often think if circumstances were different, that person could of been me or you?
The things we take for granted every day such as deodorant, toothpaste, shampoo etc can be donated to help make the first few days much more comfortable for someone in this situation.
I am very humbled by this cause and have had a little sort out and here's what i am donating:
shower gels/shampoo/deodorant/toothpaste/toothbrush/baby toiletries
Body sprays/ sun tan protection/ bubble bath/ exfoliator
Cleansers/moisturisers Face & Body/ Hair care
Makeup/ Brushes/ Nail polish
The products don't have to be brand new. Anything you would give to a friend is perfectly fine. ( No used Mascara/lipgloss )
