In Fargo Firstlink is having a "Toilet Tree" drive for toiletries. I didn't have all that much but I did donate 5 toothbrushes, 1 lotion, and 4 razors.

Do you ask for receipt when you donate, or just drop it? I mean can they provide a receipt for tax purpoces?

Tanya said...

Anon - I do ask for a receipt. Most places that accept donations do have the tax forms to give you. They will usually fill in everything but the monetary amount and sign it.

Doing the charity challenges are a great way for me to keep track and document what I've given over the past year :)
