For almost four years this blog post has served as a way of connecting thousands of you with organisations across the UK and Ireland. I’m hugely grateful for your support, you’re all amazingly generous people, thank you.
I’m delighted to be able to announce that toiletriesamnesty.org is now live. We’ve set up a charity and we’re working to build a global directory.
Please head over to toiletriesamnesty.org join our mailing list and check out the growing directory.
We need your help more than ever now. There are lots of ways you can support the Toiletries Amnesty, big and small. When it comes to donating your toiletries we wanted to make it as easy as possible for everyone to get involved, so we created a directory of those who’d really appreciate a little bit of help from us all. You can see what the organisations do, and where they are, and you can see how to get in touch with them. Please do mention the Toiletries Amnesty – they’ll totally know what you mean!
Small actions make big changes. Thank you for getting involved.
It all started in my airing cupboard. It was September 2014 and I realised that too many people were living with too many spare, unwanted or unused toiletry products, and that actually these items could be really helpful to others. You can read the original post here if you’d like, and the follow-ups here, and here.
The original premise was to collect for Winter Comfort, a homeless shelter in Cambridge, and we did – with so much gusto we filled their storage space to capacity!
The donations kept coming and people were really getting behind the Toiletries Amnesty, so it seemed right to keep going, and keep sharing. To date we’ve provided help to thousands of people across Cambridgeshire and beyond!
The Toiletries Amnesty shows no signs of slowing down, and we’ve had such great feedback, it seemed only right to open it up to more groups, more locations, and more generous donors.
If you want to be added to the directory please head over to toiletriesamnesty.org to register for free. If you know a group that you think would benefit from being listed, please send them our way!
