Help fo Haiti Part 3- Hygiene Kits

In my last post in reference to Haiti I mentioned humanitarian kits. Here's the instructions to make a hygiene kit: Place the following items in a heavy duty one-gallon sealable bag. Remove the air before sealing.
  • 2 unbreakable combs without sharp handles
  • 4 toothbrushes sealed
  • 1 tube of toothpaste (6-8 oz, no pumps)
  • 2 bars of soap (3.5-5 oz each)
  • 2 hand towels (approximately 15x25")
For this and other patterns go to the following link. I found that the best place to get the hand towels is Sam's I got 2 dozen hotel hand towels for $21. The other items I picked up from Walmart, but that doesn't mean that that's the cheapest place to get them, it was just most convenient at the time. They were easy and fun to make, even my four year-old-was getting involved.
If you live in Utah you can drop them off at the nearest Deseret Industries or bishop's storehouse in a sealed box labeled "LDS Humanitarian Services" or you can ship them to:
Latter-Day Saint Humanitarian Center
1665 South Bennett Road
Salt Lake City, UT 84104
