For this week’s giving, Claire shopped for a box of supplies to help aid the flood victims in Louisiana. Many websites asked for money, and I honestly understand the need for such funds but Claire really wanted to pick things out from the list of needed supplies.

So off to Dollar Tree we went. The first things Claire picked were clearly inspired by her own shopping “wants” — magic towels and tissues all in a Finding Dory theme 🙂

But she was also able to find a lot of things from the actual “needed items” list too.


We were even able to add a few goodies like coloring books and crayons for the kids who lost all their toys and belongings.


We mailed our donation to YMCA AC LEWIS, 350 S Foster Dr., Baton Rouge, La 70806. If you’d like to donate to them, the following items are still needed: batteries, diapers, wipes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, toilet tissue, bar soap, bottled water, travel size shampoo and conditioner, body wash, non-perishable foods (ramen, etc.), blankets, flashlights, and first aid kits.
