A few weeks ago, I told you about what happened to me, and how this year I have chosen to support the #itsinthebag campaign. Well, time worked out well for me this morning and I manage to complete my bag!
What I really love about this fundraiser is that it’s simple, personal, fun – and most importantly, will really help someone!
This is my #itsinthebag and all the contents:
You don’t have to spend a lot. My bag was not expensive, and the contents came from Kmart, Terry White, and Coles. All easy to find stores. My bag cost $13.50 to put together:
- $2 for the bag (Kmart)
- $1 each for the: earplugs, tissues, lip balm, antibacterial wipes, eye mask, lint roller (all Terry White), panty liners (Coles), vanilla body butter and argan oil hair treatment (Kmart)
- $2.50 for the tampons (Coles)
I also popped a small card in the bag, with a personal note (not shown) written on the back:
The campaign collection runs from November 19th to December 3rd, so you have HEAPS of time to put something together and find a local donation point. There are some great tips (and a few items to exclude) on this page.
UPDATE: I also went through my bathroom and found some great samples that I hadn’t used in ages, so I figured it would better to give them to someone in need:
Will you join in with #itsinthebag this Christmas?
