Plusabilities: A Desire to Give More, When Receiving More #PGMom #Plusabilities

It's the first long weekend of the summer - yeah - what are your plans this weekend?  I am on-call this weekend in case my sister goes into labour, we'll go over to their house and take care of their children while they are at the hospital.  I don't really think it is going to happen this weekend, but we'll hang around home just in case.  Since we are home, it is the perfect time to organize and sort some of the piled-high clothing in my bedroom.

Spring is a perfect time of year to purge and get rid of unwanted clothing in our homes.  P&G is encouraging Canadians to dig through their closets and pass unwanted clothing along to someone who could use it, through Goodwill. 

A Tide truck will be visiting prominent family attractions in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal picking up gently used clothing donations to celebrate new beginnings with its not for profit partner, Goodwill.

By donating gently used clothing to Goodwill during Tide Clothing Donation Day events, you’re not only de-cluttering your home, you’re also teaching your kids the value of giving back and the ripple effect, or Plusabilities behind a simple good deed.

  Giving your threads a second life can:
·         Give someone confidence going to a job interview
·         Make a kid smile going to class with a cool pair of kicks
·         Enable skills development and employment and work experience for those who face employment barriers
·         Support community-based programs through the funds raised as Goodwill donates 82 per cent of its revenue back

To thank Canadians for their support, upon dropping off a donation they’ll receive a Tide Plus coupon booklet so they can experience more of what they love at home.

It's time to get back to sorting and get my clothing donation gathered up.  I am so happy to help enrich someone's life just by passing along my outgrown or used clothing.  Hope you'll join us!
