Christmas Toiletries Kit

Hello Y’all,

Hope all of you are truly good today. We are doing well.

Today, I thought I would share something that Sweets and I received while we were on the streets and we had thought about how to pack these same things when we have been out backpacking on the trail. It is an odd first Trail Magic project, however when you are low on these supplies and are thinking about getting them at the next stop along the trail, using up the last bit of any item on the list is in the forefront of your mind. A Christmas Toiletries Kit along with other kits that we will eventually discuss is the most important of the kits. In the Christmas Toiletries Kit list you will see items that will benefit anyone; male, female, adult, and child. Some items on the lists will not be allowed for these kits if you decide to take a box full of these kits to a shelter, an example of this would be shaving razors or toenail clippers. Though if you hand them out while on the streets shelters have little control.

“Whether you make 1 kit or 1000 kits, I challenge everyone to consider doing it. Or consider donating any of the following items to the needy.”

Please, make sure NOT to use products with alcohol, perfume or other scents, or medicated. Also, use new products.

Most of the following products can be purchase in one store; such as Walmart, Walgreens, Rite-Aid as well as Sam’s Club or Costco and even online on such as Amazon. The prices that follow the products below are prices I found on Amazon.

 

For $22.86 you can brighten someone’s Christmas.

For $2,286.00 you can brighten 100 people Christmas Toiletries.
