Yes- love it! I've been collecting my unused toiletries from hotel every week for a while now to give to a women's shelter (can't take credit for idea - someone from PDubs had suggested it on FB)

I religiously collect mine. I send them to Africa 😢

^thats awesome. I really think we should do this more broadly. It's such a simple thing for us to do, yet can make a day much more pleasant for less fortunate folks.

I'm first generation American and send them through my parents - they visit about three times each year. Hearing my mom tell me stories of how big a deal it is when she's handing them are my most humbling moments. People in rural areas literally stand in line to get one each. As crazy as it sounds, I end up paying for one extra luggage just for her to take them back.

So client is sponsoring...they have a cardboard box near the entrance after you badge in. The box is essentially empty. I plan on filling the fuck out of it. @p2 - there are carts in the halls. I can use my toiletries and still ask for and swipe more. I've stayed in my sheraton for 100 nights last year. If they challenge me on asking for toiletries, I will publicly destroy them. My client organized it but easy to get in contact with local shelter (especially under 18 children) and just ask where you can drop off once full or a timeline that helps the shelter. I can post more details once I ask them tomorrow. It's likely a local place but the concept is national

Our client is doing it too. Happy to help!

Fuck no. I need that shit myself

Where do you guys donate them? Do you do like a once a month run to your nonprofit of choice?

like

Yeah because fuck giving things that we essentially get for free to people who need them! Way to go p5!

Yah can you share that info? Perhaps open a new thread so others can do it too

This is such an amazing idea! Please provide links or places to donate. Client is in Philly but I'm based of NYC. There must be somewhere I can donate

Local homeless services agencies are a good place to donate. I take mine into Miriam's Kitchen in DC about every 6 months.

I'll use more to offset all the donations

I love this idea and would love to do it in the NY office
