Domestic Violence Victims Need Our Help!


VICTIMS of Domestic Violence 

Need our Help!

Many of you know me well, and know that I love to help others. I recently received an email from one of the Directors of Turning Point in Marion, OH.
For any of you who may be unfamiliar; Turning Point is a shelter for Victims of Domestic Violence. Thousand of woman and children every year stay in one of their shelters as a "last resort" option to escape their horrible situations.

The message I received was regarding donations. There are many people/ "couponers" who donate to them and they are so grateful for each and every item that comes in. 
However, I was informed that they are dangerously low on specific items and NEED OUR HELP.
When a family leaves the shelter and moves into their new home, Turning Point tries to supply them with not only personal items, but also CLEANING PRODUCTS to help keep their home clean.

They are ALMOST COMPLETELY OUT and have nothing to send with the families at their departure.

They could also use Baby Product; Diapers, Baby Lotion, Baby Bath, etc..... These items are so expensive and aren't donated as much as items like toothbrushes and deodorant. 


From now until May 7th, I will be collecting BOTH cleaning products and Baby items. 
I will be taking them to the Marion, OH location on Thursday, May 8th, 2014
I could also use a few extra hands to help me deliver the donations, if anyone has that day free and could help me. 

I will also accept monetary donations of ANY amount. ALL of the money collected will be used to purchase items that were low in donations. For example; if we do not get that many diapers donated, but get plenty of dish liquid, then we will use the cash to purchase diapers. 
Pictures and update will be posted after the May 8th drop-off
Can be made by clicking on the "Donate" Paypal Button.

Coupon Ministry

   I have felt led by God to start this Ministry. And I actually spoke w/ someone on FB who is doing
something similar.
   I have placed a Donation button at the bottom of the page. You can donate any amount you wish.
I do not have a 501(c)3 established and am not able to give you a tax receipt for this.
   This ministry is to provide those families who are really "trying" and just can't seem to make ends meet.
The families that use every $1 they have to pay bills and feed children. The ones who can't afford to spend $2 or $3 on the weekends to buy a newspaper to get coupons.
  My personal donation will be paying the shipping for the inserts. Therefore, Every $10 will send a family a 10 pack of inserts.
  If you can only afford to donate $1, that's fine, it will stay there until $10 is accumulated.
If your family or a family you know would benefit from this, please email me at carters.coupons@yahoo.com
and let me know why.
May God bless each and every one of you!! Together we can make a difference!!!

"How do I get a subscription?"

 Many of you have inquired about auto-pay subscriptions.
It's easy, simple and you will automatically receive your inserts every week!

You will see 2 different subscription "Paypal" buttons to choose from.

If you want ALL  coupons you need to sign up for both and here's why.....

The Monthly service is EXCLUSIVE to P&G only. Proctor & Gamble only comes out once a month.
You just need to decide how many you want per month.
**NOTE:** The weekly subscription service will NOT get you P&G inserts....
The Weekly service is for both Smart Source & Red Plum.... they do come out weekly.
I had to do it this way for billing purposes.

When you sign up for your subscription, your first payments will be withdrawn at that time. For example: if you sign up on a Monday, all of your payments will be made on Mondays.

You can cancel at anytime, by simply coming back here and hit the "unsubscribe" button, or through you Paypal account, under your subscriptions.
May God bless all your shopping endeavors!

Welcome everyone...

I know this may seem very basic, but I want it that way.
If you scroll down you will see two different subscription buttons.
The top one is for monthly (i.e. P&G inserts that come out once a month)
You will see it says "along" and the price is higher. That is because you will have to
cover the shipping. If you also have a weekly subscription, then you are already being charged for
the shipping, and that is why the "with weekly sub" options are less expensive. That way you're not paying for shipping twice.
The bottom one is for the weekly inserts.

In the uncommon event that there is a week with three inserts, I will bill you for the third
one. You have the choice to pay for it and receive it or not.

There is no standard commitment on the subscriptions. Personally, I don't like lenghty
obligations, and I don't expect that from anyone else as well. You can cancel at anytime, by signing into your Paypal account. If you have any trouble doing so, simply let me know. I can also cancel it on my end.

I will be working on this throughout the next week to "spice it up" a bit. Thank you everyone for your patience!
I greatly appreciate each and every one of you!
God Bless.
