You guys are AWESOME!!! I got SO MANY pictures of your donations! I was only able to post a few this week, but please keep them coming. If you’re new here, read below the pics for all the details.
For quite some time I have felt led by God to dive in and help out the community and others. I have been teaching coupon classes for over 2 years now and before each class I pray that I can reach at least one person in the class to take what they learn and GIVE BACK! I’ve always stressed donating extra items from your stockpile to a friend, family member, neighbor or a larger organization. I want to know what you all are doing in your community to help!
I truly believe that all of us, no matter what your ethnic background, religious beliefs, age, or income, all feel the need to HELP OTHERS.
Each week I’d like to make a post with ALL of the items we have donated to those that are in need or that need a “pick me up”. Ideas: Women’s shelters, animal shelters, food banks, OUR MILITARY, military families, single parents, NEIGHBORS, and the person on the corner asking for food! The list is endless.
So this is what I ask. Sometime during the next 6 days, comment on this post (in the comment section below) with the item or items you donated this week. (comments will close on Tuesday). Have a picture? Email it to me!! I will make a master list to post next Wednesday along with one of your pictures so we can see our progress. To Read More about giving, visit THIS POST.
Here is a list of some of the places that Couponers United Readers have donated to this past week:
Coalition for the Homeless
Journey’s End – a big thank you to the woman that brought pet food to the class today – my son is SO EXCITED to donate them to Journey’s End tomorrow!
Multiple Food Banks & Food Pantries
Friends & Relatives
Here is just ONE of the many stories I received:
“I work in an office of about 20 people, and we adopt one active military hero and send them cards and care packages until they return safely and then adopt another. We’ve been doing this over 5 years now. Alot of the stuff we send in the care packages are from freebies or stuff I’ve gotten cheap with my coupons. This next care package has some of the Starkist Tuna packets that I got super cheap at Target a few weeks back, and some Carmex lip balm I got with a Walgreens Register Reward, and some granola bars that I got for free. This is stuff these heros can use to make their life over there more comfortable while they protect our freedoms and serve our country. Anyone who wants to look into adopting a military hero, please contact Tell Them Thanks. They can hook you up with a military man or woman that would appreciate your support. And thank you so much for posting all the deals so that we can share out of our abundance. God Bless! “
This week to get the ball rolling a winner was randomly chosen from all the commentors/emails and will receive a $10 Target Card, the winner is TAMMY. I will email details to claim your prize. This was just to get the ball rolling, I wish I could give out $$ each week…. I hope everyone will still participate and add their weekly donations to the comment section below!
