A huge one.

So much that I have started giving most of mine to a local women and childrens shelter.

I've also got friends and family to bring me their stuff to donate also.

Now, we just need to get MD to announce thet next one.

I have done this for years... I have always been able to find a local women's shelter that loved getting the amenities....

Did you have just the cheapo razors hotels will hand out? Hotels seem to only give me single blade razors and all the agencies around me require dual blade razors.

-------------
For those of you who sort you stuff do you put like items together or do you put together a baggie of certain items? I've always just brought my bag of stuff to the church and let them do what they see fit, but it does take time for someone to sort. I guess I'd have to talk to a particular agency about their requirements.

Can someone point me to a link that tells you how to do this? The FAQ for signatures directs you to go to MyFlyerTalk and then click on "signatures". I do not see any menu items on this page nor in the edit profile details pages.

Thanks!

Go to "Private Messages" and click on "Edit Signature" in the "Your Control Panel" section.

Due to signature abuses you need to be a member for 90 days and have 90 posts to have a signature. Since you don't have 90 posts you don't have the option to set one.
