Tuesday's Tip ~ Utilize Free Swap Sites for Shoe Box Items
Freecycle or Craigslist, in your area check them out for free or cheap supplies for your shoe box gifts. My area has neither, but I have read on Clip With Purpose's Facebook Wall of others who often request or find craft supplies and other items for their Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. One gal, I can't remember now who, requests Beanie Babies on Craigslist. She noted that when a specific non-profit is noted in the listing it will be removed, so she just says she is using them for needy kids and when she is contacted she gives the details of what organization she is donating thru.
That gave me the idea to make a Beanie Baby WANTED! Poster. You are welcome to print it or share it online if you'd liked to use it.
