Pay it Forward Friday

Kelly at Blue Frogs Legs does this amazing thing every Friday.  Remember the movie Pay It Forward, well she promotes that kind of love, sharing and giving every Friday. Last Friday she was visited by a young girl asking for donations for the local women's shelter; you can read about it here. And that prompted her to challenge her readers to Pay it Forward to their local shelters.



Today that is what I am doing. I think it is such a great idea, and you never know what life may throw at you, trust me!! And there are so many things you probably have lying around your house that could be so very useful if not important to some of these woman who have to leave their houses at a moment's notice. Unused toiletry items, gently used kids toys, baby items. These are all greatly needed. Call your local women's shelter and see what they need, and donate it!

Today I challenge you to so just that! Donate to your local Women's Shelter. And then come back here and tell me about it.

And while you are at it, check out Kelly's site http://bluefrogslegs.blogspot.com  you'll be sure glad you did!!

I'm (slowly) giving up my packrat ways! For years I've been hanging on to a box of children's books, which I've been holding onto in the hopes that eventually I would have kidlets running around in need of reading material. Since that plan doesn't look like it's coming to fruition anytime soon, I've donated these books to the local women's shelter!

wonderful idea! I just finally got nightstands with drawers for next to my bed, and found all kinds of useful stuff in the the boxes I unpacked today that I don't really need. So I will donate!

Great idea!

We moved 3 months ago, and sold & donated ALL of the things we couldn't use here for one reason or another, but I'm sure I can find something to donate.

11 years ago I purchased a futon thru Spiegel's catalog for my daughter when she had more than one friend sleeping over. Well she never really used it, they liked sleeping in the basement on the carpeting in sleeping bags instead, so I donated it to the women's shelter. They were happy to see a brand new sofa/bed! :)
