Coupons 4 Cuba: A Great Donation!

Today was the final day before Rene left for Cuba, and we all helped him to completely fill his family's suitcases! We rounded up so much stuff, I had to split things up to take the pictures :)
Here is everything Rene will be taking with him to Cuba:
  • Maxi Pads
  • 62 Disposable Razors
  • 8 Shave Gels
  • 11 Deodorants
  • 3 Bottles and 15 Individual Packs of Toothpaste
  • Floss
  • 7 Facial Cleansers
  • 4 Packs of Pantyliners
  • 7 Body Washes
  • 2 Bars of Soap
  • 6 Shampoos
  • 4 Conditioners
  • 6 Butterfinger Bars
  • 2 Peeps with Chocolate

  • Mouthwash
  • 3 Face Lotions
  • Eyeshadow
  • 2 Mascaras
  • 3 Lipsticks
  • Cream Blush
  • 6 Spray Deodorants
I was so happy to see everyone's generous donations. There was even some Clinique brand items in there! Everything completely filled 4 grocery bags that I could hardly tie shut and what a beautiful site they were :)
The best part of all of this was seeing how excited Rene was to see it all! He was honestly speechless and almost in tears. He had no idea I would round up so much and it took a lot of convincing for him to believe me when I said we got most of it for free :) He wanted me to be sure I tell everyone who donated that he said thank you so much.
Thank you again to everyone who gave of their things to help Rene's family and friends in Cuba. Everything will be arriving in Cuba on Sunday morning and I know Rene will be incredibly excited to distribute everything. This was such a great experience and I can't wait for another opportunity to arrange a donation!
