Last fall our pastor was talking about the upcoming mission trip members from our church will have an opportunity to go on this summer. When I came home from church that day I really felt like God was calling me to do something to help the people of Guatemala. I remembered before last year's mission trip they were asking for donations of personal hygiene products. I walked out into our garage and saw the lavender bucket I'd used for donations of peanut butter for Harper-Lynn's 2nd birthday. I had the idea the collect sample-sized personal hygiene products!
I've mentioned my Single Moms small group at church. They are a heaven sent wonderful group of women. We are also probably one of the less affluent groups at our church. I still wanted us to do something to help with donations. I came up with the idea of each person bringing in one item around $1 each week. It was so easy for us to do. I'm so excited to share, as of today, we have filled the bucket and actually have an overflow!
A HUGE thank-you to these sweet women for their dedication with this project! So many people will be blessed by your generosity!
