Couponing for Community starts today

Couponing for Community
This is our chance to ‘flex our couponing muscles’ together for good.  Here’s what will be happening this week:
Over 100 bloggers have rallied together to invite our readers to GIVE this week.  We invite you to use the knowledge and tools that you have gained through couponing to give to a food pantry, rescue shelter, or friend in need this week, May 8-14.   Some of you have been couponing for a while and can simply gather a box of items from your stockpile to give away.  Others may only be able to give one or two items.  But we invite each of you to consider how you can join this effort!
Our goal this year is 10,000 items and we are already well on our way.
IMPORTANT: You can check out our ‘See our Progress’ tab on the Couponing for Community Facebook page to track our totals throughout the week.  Then be sure to count the items that you donate and add them to the total.  Every donation counts!
Don’t forget that this Saturday is also National Stamp Out Hunger Day.  Giving can be as simple as leaving a bag of non-perishable food items by your mailbox on Saturday morning!
We’d love to see pictures of your donations on the Facebook page as well.  We are all about celebrating GIVING through couponing this week!
These are what I've been giving out:
They are Hygiene kits that include:
Bar Soap
Body Wash

  1. This is an awesome idea! Way to think outside of the box! Yes people need food, but those same people need hygiene supplies too!
