♥52 Weeks of Beauty – 2013 Week 5 – Make Someone Else’s Day Beautiful!♥

♥I love finding new ways to give back. This week, I took a large plain brown basket from Jo Ann Fabrics and spray painted it pink with spray paint from Michaels Craft Store. I also added clear pink glitter spray over it. I found 20 treat bags at the Dollar Store and filled them up with makeup, candy and treats for kids too (since some of the women have children). There is a local women’s shelter in my area with 19 women and 6 kids. I wanted to deliver this on Valentines Day…and I did. It was very touching and I was holding back tears after I dropped it off at the office. Holidays can be lonely, so if it is possible for me to give back on a holiday, I try to. I found all the treats/goodies at Jewel Osco, CVS, Walgreens, Michaels and Dollar Tree. It is challenging to find large amounts of items for an affordable price, but after some searching – I did! I had a great time putting this together. The basket and all the contents cost me under $150. I know that is a lot, but I felt that the price wasn’t so bad considering it would be reaching 26 people altogether. 🙂 A more affordable way to do this would be to just do candy…(you may want to call ahead and see if there are any diabetics first though…and then you could make them sugar free treat bags). If you have any ideas on how to give back, please leave a comment below…I would SO love to hear about them! 🙂
