Basics Charity Challenge 2012

Cara, from Cara Quilts, is hosting another Basics Charity Challenge this year.


Basic Charity Challenge 2012

If you didn’t hear about this last year, the premise is really simple.  Do something to help those in your community.

It doesn’t have to be big, like making a quilt.  Think about the basics.  What basics did it take for you to get out of the house this morning? (yes, assuming you got out & about today)

  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Hairbrush
  • TP
  • Soap
  • Deodorant

These are just ideas.  Cara posted these and many more in her blog post.  Go check that out!

To help inspire others, there is a flickr group where you can post (or email Cara to post anonymously) a pic of your donation.

As a little thank you for doing a good deed, you can enter your name to win some dandy prizes from some very awesome sponsors.

So check your pantry, do you have an extra roll or paper towels or pack of ear swabs that can be dropped off at a local shelter?  An extra bag of canned goods for the food shelter?

A HUGE  THANK YOU  to Cara for being such a great organizer, giving soul & all around great gal!

This is really neat and thanks for sharing it ! I just gave a bag of baby onesies , socks , washcloths & a few receiving blankets to a church that has members going to Nicaragua on a mission trip , but I didn't take a picture . But that's ok ; they need the things at a hospital there since the babies are sent home naked most of the time since the moms & families have nothing for them . Makes you think ............ of how overly blessed we are here . OVERLY BLESSED .
