  1. I have a "Wash for Relief" event set up on Facebook where people can buy a fragrance free, gender neutral body wash to be donated to the tornado victims in Joplin, MO. I'll personally be supplying a body sponge for every body wash purchased, and am hoping to get a big enough response that I will have to send at least monthly care packages. Please consider participating, as well as passing on the word to all you know. Every little bit helps. Log in to your FaceBook and go to my event page through the following link for more information ...
