{Pay It Forward} You Can Still Help NC Hurricane Victims

Thought you missed the chance to help our neighbors in Eastern NC after Hurricane Irene? Not so. Here’s how you can still help – all month long! The following message is from Beleza… a fair trade boutique {Raleigh | online}.

We waited until we could determine how to best help with the incredible needs in the areas of North Carolina that were severely flooded. We are working with UMCOR to provide needed items immediately. The following items are needed. Please consider this list and drop off only new items at our store. When you do this, you will be provided a charitable donation form sponsored through Together We Can, Inc. – the nonprofit for which Philip serves as Executive Director. Please keep your receipt to use to fill out the charitable donation form.

We will accept these items the entire month of October. Thank you so much for helping these folks who are in need of our support and care.

It’s easy to take for granted the simple luxuries of soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste, toilet paper, and razors. What an easy way to help: it’s so simple and doesn’t cost much to pick up on your regular grocery run!

Pay it forward, Style Hunters!
