Everyone knows the importance of self-care; from the different types of soaps, shampoos, conditioners, skin cream, or other pleasantries you buy, treating yourself to your favorite products can not only help you with your self-image, but give you peace of mind.
According to a recent survey, Americans spend $199 a month of their disposable income on non-essentials for themselves. The unfortunate fact is that not everyone can afford this peace of mind. Many of the pleasantries we take for granted every day are considered luxuries to some families.
The average pair of socks costs roughly $3, while a towel costs anywhere from $7 to $15. These seemingly small items are needed for families across Metro Detroit and can certainly help with their peace of mind.
Through the end of March, we encourage you to consider taking just a small part of your self-care budget and putting it towards a pair of socks or new towel that a struggling family might need. No matter how small you think these items are, we promise they can make a big impact.
