    I am taking all my soaps/Shampoos/Conditioners collected from hotel and cruise trips down to the SadieDey’s Cafe in Oakland.

  2. Yes please Isabelle! Thank you for your support! Just a reminder that the bin will be at SadieDey’s on MONDAY, APR 20th.

  3. This is fantastic! I visited a shelter yesterday. The staff were setting up for a new family arrival, putting together toiletry bags, and they were using the travel/hotel items to do this—they really do help!

  4. Young moms at Brighter Beginnings are especially in need of diapers in these economic times. They are hard-working students and mothers working to sustain their families. Diapers are such an important part of helping them to succeed in life. Thank you for all you are doing!

    She has the same passion for it that you seem to have. Best wishes!

  14. Thanks for highlighting this overlooked need. I had honestly never thought much about this, although I had donated some unused diapers along with my unused hospital formula gifts back when my daughter was just a baby who had outgrown her first diaper size.

    My husband and I will be making a donation soon, either via your wishlist or in person. I also put up a post about this on my blog today.
