I really liked that travel kit with the lotion, toothpaste, soap and kleenex they give you during your hospital stay. So that gave me a thought because as soon as i got my feet back under me i had an overwhelming desire to hit up my nearest drugstore makeup dept, that good old retail therapy.
But I ran into a problem, I did not have an extra 25 bucks to induldge. (my anniversary just so happened to coincide so that's what my DB let me do :-) And my sister bought me some fun stuff too.
I wanted a new body mist, an anklet, new eyeshadow shade, cute little hand held mirror, hair bands and blush, etc, etc.
I'm a makeup girl, I'm not much into manicures and I was thinking that if my one girlfriend got the retail therapy urge after a breast surgergy she would want a cute manicure kit.
So wouldn't it be a good idea to get some of these sorts of gift bags to give out to low income gals coming out of surgery? Have them pick out a choice, a check a box like "MAKEUP" "MANICURE" or whatnot, so they something to look forward to.
I have never done a fund raiser and I think it would not take alot of money, maybe get a drug store to get on board...maybe there is already something like this.
Any ideas or info would be greatly appreciated.
