The 2017 Annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress states:

"On a single night in 2017, 553,742 people were experiencing homelessness in the United States. For every 10,000 people in the country, 17 were experiencing homelessness. Approximately two-thirds (65%) were staying in emergency shelters or transitional housing programs, and about one-third (35%) were in unsheltered locations."

Imagine person being turned away from a local is shelter because it's filled to capacity. Imagine that person's only option is to use a gas station bathroom for basic hygiene purposes but thankfully having a handbag or totebag filled will items they would otherwise have no money to buy. Imagine opening the bag to find a new toothbrush and tooth paste, a pair of fresh an clean socks, body wash, deodorant and feminine products, even a clean pair of underwear. Imagine looking in the mirror to see your own reflection. Yes it could be you, me, her or him and sadly it is but we have no idea.

This is reality for many in our country! Please look in your hearts and closets for any gently used handbags and totebags that you may be ready to part with. There is someone that will be very thankful that you did! Send items to:

Saving Women and Girls
P.O. Box 8552
Reston, VA 20195

*Monetary donations are not accept. Please donate toiletries and non perishable foods in lieu of monies.

Have you ever wondered what homeless women and girl do when they need basic everyday essentials? Everyday necessities that you and I have ample supply of & easy access too. We often open our purses grab what we need or we have plenty under the bathroom sink. What if you no longer had a bathroom sink? What if your entire life was in a plastic bag you no longer had a purse? What would you do? If the thought of this makes you cringe then join me in the 2nd S.W.A.G "Blessing Bag" Donation Campaign. We are collecting gently used handbags to be filled with toiletries, feminine products as well as nonperishable healthy snacks. Filled handbags will be distributed to the homeless community of our nation's capital as well as those in the greater Atlanta area. Inbox for mailing addreas and handbag collection information. Let's come together to give disenfranchised women and girls a little peace even if it's for a short time.

Have you ever watched Tyler Perry's Good Deeds? The character Lindsey a mother of one fell on hard times after the death of her spouse was a employed but still homeless. Heartbreaking storyline, huh? Now imagine that was you. 2012 studies showed that 41% of families were homeless in United States. That was 6 years ago, imagine what the numbers are now! If you have to give please give there's a woman with children young and old out there that needs just a little help please donate to the SWAG Blessing Bag campaign today! A little help goes a long way!

Faces of a divided island

In the wake of Hurricane Matthew S.W.A.G vowed to help Haitians affected by this hurricane. However our research has shown that is very difficult, the Haitian government is said to be hoarding and not getting items to its people. This sent us back to the drawing board to find an area and other ways to help. We've been advised to seek assistance through the Red Cross however they are only seeking monetary donations and we would like to send actual basic life essentials. It seems almost impossible for us to make this happen however we continue to seek direct contacts in Haiti.

While our efforts to connect in Haiti are still in the works we are happy to announce that a Direct contact has been made in Dominican Republic for the Haitian refugee camps!

Many of you know of the current state of affairs in Dominican Republic as it pertains two residents of Haitian descent . If you're not aware let me give you a little information immigration laws have been passed requiring persons of non Dominican descent to prove their citizenship by producing documentation that states they or their descendants were born in the country. This is very expensive as well impossible in some cases as that information was never registered. Making it very difficult for persons of Haitian descent and current immigrants living in Dominican all of their lives to prove that they were born in the country. They risk being deported to a place that they've never lived, in a culture that they've never experienced.

Learn more at https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2016/04/12/world/dominican-republic-haiti-immigration/index.html

Our contact will distribute all of our donations to the refugee camp, placing them in the hands of trusted people to help these men women and children. An emergency blessing bag event will be held on November 26, 2016, location and time TBD.

This campaign will not request handbags but actual physical full and travel sized items. Those items include the following:
Flip flops
Socks
Clothing
Shoes
toothbrushes
toothpaste
hygienic toiletries
Combs
brushes
deodorant
insect repellent
men women and children's undergarments
Clothing
Gallon or larger sized reclosable plastic bags
Industrial strength plastic wrap

The need is horrendous please, if you are able to give do not hesitate to do so. For donation information please inbox S.W.A.G, send am email to [email protected] or call or text (571) 402-8227

How centuries of racism shaped the people of Haiti and the Dominican Republic -- and continue to echo through a modern-day immigration crisis.

SWAG is happy to report the 60+ Blessing Bags packed during our October 2016 Packing Party will be distributed to the Hurricane Matthew flood victims in North Carolina (Cary, Princeville, Lumberton and surrounding area).

December 2016 will be a Blessing Bag -Disaster Relief Packing Party for the Haitian victims of Hurricane Matthew. The date and location is TBD. Donations may be dropped of at Pulse Hair Studio and/or pick can be coordinated. We will also take donations at the packing party event.

This packing party will not be collecting handbags, we will need the following items (just to name a few):

lotions, deodorant, etc)
Socks, Underwear, T-Shirts ( Men, Women & Children)
