The goodness of your hearts

I met with the female members of an Afghani family today. We have several aid programs, and I'm appealing to everyone for things--cheap things!--to send in order to help the people of this terribly poor country.

We need:

Soap bars
Toothbrushes (adult and child)
Toothpaste
Vaseline-based lotion (Vaseline is a recognizable product name, which helps)
Bagged rice
Dhal (lentils, chickpeas, etc)
Socks (all ages)
Kids' rubber shoes and galoshes.

A lot of you have my address already. If not, message me or amercianstd. And thank you!

For those of you living near a Walgreens store, you can pick up Vaseline Sheer Infusion Body Lotion for free for the rest of this week.

In-store only. Buy ONE of these lotions for $6.99:

When you check out, you'll get back a coupon (called a Register Reward) for $7 to use towards your next Walgreens purchase. Some things to be careful of, if you use that $7RR towards another bottle of Vaseline lotion, I don't think your next $7 RR will print. Also, the RR will have an expiration date in 2 weeks so you have to spend it by then.

Is the address an APO so that postage is as if you were mailing within the US? I always thought that was pretty cool.
