Thanks to this donation from of high-end lip balm we were able to fulfill what we had set out to do, and spread joy and smiles through an array of beautiful colored lip balms and products. It is so heartwarming and amazing to see so much happiness after all the heartache and devastation brought by the fires and the heavy rains here in California. The homeless, displaced, and needy who received this wonderful and much–needed donation were shocked with disbelief when they found out it was a gift. Many of those we serve are below the poverty level and barely have basic personal care items. Lip balms help during extreme temperatures including cold outdoors and extreme heat. This little gift built their self-esteem and made them feel just as important as everyone else!
There was a beautiful young girl named Sarah who was so excited to receive this gift. She mentioned that all of the kids at school had these “cool” round lip balms in all different colors, yet she couldn’t afford one. When she had asked her mom if she could buy one, her mother said she needed to use her money for necessities like groceries. When Sarah arrived to the distribution event and saw the baskets of the different colored lip balms, she was so surprised and excited and she shouted to her mom “Look mom! These were the balms I was asking for that all of the kids at school have!” With tears in her eyes she was so grateful to receive the assortment of colors. When I saw her reaction, I wanted to know why she was so overwhelmed with emotion, and she went on to explain how she felt at school, and how she always wanted this lip balm! She said, “I just feel happy because I really wanted one and now I have so many colors!” This donation has impacted over 2000+ lives and the joy and happiness it brings will continue to touch the lives of so many! Thank you Good360 for helping touch all these lives and helping our community feel worthy!
