WE ONLY COLLECT SAMPLE SIZED TOILETRIES

If you are unsure, please check with us first.

There is a very good reason why we only collect sample sized products and that is because we put them into care packages that are approximate 20cm x 30cm. Our recipients take great comfort in receiving something they can call their own. For homeless, and in particular rough sleeper homeless, these items can be carried in their pocket.

We provide 2 kinds of Care Packs – a standard care pack made up of donated hotel toiletries as well as items that are found in airline amenity kits such as sleeping masks, socks and ear buds.

The ‘lady care packs’ we supply to women’s refuges and homeless shelters contain sanitary items, a hair comb, cosmetics, deodorant and perfume in addition to the basic toiletry items. We assume that these are the items that would not be the priority to pack if someone was fleeing a violent situation.

We also collect makeup & cosmetic samples (unused & unopened) as well as deodorant and sanitary items.

WE DO NOT ACCEPT

Clothing, furniture, toys, books, household items, full sized toiletries, opened products or products that are out of date.
