...Huh. A group of three homeless people just came to my door because they heard I have personal hygiene kits (toothbrush, toothpaste, etc)

I... did happen to have some of those things from previous volunteer work, but I don't normally stock them, and I'm curious where they heard that! I keep like, period supplies around, maybe a game of telephone got that mixed up?


Give me some of your money so I can buy toothpaste and toothbrushes for people who need them.


"emsenn aren't you worried about people coming to you door"

yes! all the time! especially cops.

but like, it's a scary world and we gotta do what we gotta do, and it's gotta be 10x scarier for that homeless person who's giving me a legal right to shoot them so they can ask for a toothbrush, so like, whatever. We can all bond over our mutual terror of each other, I suppose.

I'd put together a list of all the cool things the money you give me does but tbh like 80% of it is probably criminal so just trust my judgement I suppose

I've gotten enough for toothpaste and toothbrushes, for what it's worth; anything more will go toward tampons/liners. I wish cups were cheaper, but also they tend to be messier to remove and that's hard to do in public restrooms that transient people are often in, so I've heard a lot aren't interested in them for that (good) reason.

@GwenfarsGarden I think they all go into paypal so I think paypal direct is probably the best one.
