Toothbrushes + slippers = Christmas kindness

aliMy friend Ali, who has been an incredible supporter of many causes, recently collected and distributed 279 pamper boxes to go to women in domestic violence shelters on the Gold Coast.  Pretty amazing – check out her recent fb post about her wall of love / kindness wall:

“Apparently some clown in the US has been carrying on about building a wall. Here in Oz we do things a little differently. Behind me is a wall that you built, a wall of love. All of your donations have gone into making a wall of 279 pamper boxes to go to women who are in domestic violence shelters this Christmas. That’s enough for a box of kindness for every single woman in a DV shelter in SE Queensland who has run from violence. Now that, my friends, is a wall to be proud of. Mahalo to all my beautiful friends who donated and #RizeUp who will distribute through their networks.”

If that was not enough, Ali was chatting to a DV worker last Saturday night, and asked “what else do you need?”

“Toothbrushes and slippers” she said.  Yep, it is that simple.  If you would like to pick up an extra toothbrush or a pair of slippers, children’s or adults and send to Ali’s next collection, please mail to:

Ali the Angel, 48 Justin Avenue, Mt Tamborine QLD 4272

(or I see Ali fairly regularly, and I can deliver for you too.)

toothbrushIf you have a book club, sports team, work group, or school class looking to put some kindness into your end of year or this Christmas, perhaps you could combine your efforts, collect together and send in.

Ali’s goal is to collect 500 toothbrushes and 500 pairs of slippers – lets help get her there! PLEASE SHARE THIS POST xxx
