Stuff. You probably have drawers of things that you don’t really need. We all do!
It’s good stuff. Stuff you use every day. But you bought it on sale and forgot you bought on sale and now you’re swimming in it. Maybe you collected it from a hotel you stayed at. All those little sample sizes are perfect for people who have to carry everything they own in a backpack.
Collecting these things can make for a pretty exciting group project. Imagine how many disposable razors or toothbrushes your school or group could collect!
Homeless people need the things we all take for granted. Thank you for helping ease the burden of someone who is simply struggling to survive.
