One of my dear friends, Shay Hampton,  has started a gift giving project called “An Extra Hand.”  This is a great and  inexpensive way to give back to the community.  The main purpose of this project is to give items that are often overlooked as gifts but are desperately needed by women who are financially challenged.

The PeachPost asks you to give an extra hand and donate 1 complete list below and place all items in a gift basket. A small laundry basket or cute tote bag will be fine.

The goal for the project this year is to donate 50 baskets to mothers deserving an extra hand. Baskets are needed by Wednesday, Dec 16.  The PeachPost will coordinate the pick up with you personally but you have to let us know of your commitment to  participate. Remember to keep your receipts as your donation is tax deductible.

The items needed are listed below.  Please let us know if you would like to participate by emailing peachpost (at) gmail (dot) com or call 404.585.0955 for more information.
