Many Reasons to Give Thanks

I was so thankful to finally have a (short) break from school for the Thanksgiving holiday.  We were able to make lip palette deliveries to several places.

Our first stop was Dress for Success.  It’s always such a pleasure to see the ladies there who work so hard to help women look good while they are in the process of interviewing for employment.

Next, we stopped at Gratitude House, which is a facility that “offers
comprehensive long-term residential, day treatment and outpatient
services to women with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health

We also stopped by the YWCA to donate lip palettes for their Harmony House, which “offers a secure, year round, 24 hour facility for women and their children who are victims of domestic violence.”

Finally, we donated several dozen lip palettes to Toys for Tots.  The palettes are perfect for preteens, too, and ages over eleven are usually the most difficult for their organization to find gifts for.

We also made a deliver to an organization that is confidential.  Isn’t it sad that the women we try to assist have to be in hiding?  It is unspeakably sad.

It was a successful day, thanks to the very generous lip palette donation from Coastal Scents.

Next up:  a mascara drive this weekend.  Dress for Success is in desperate need!
