I love this story, Sophia. I don't think it's right to donate an excess of low quality items assuming those in need will take anything they can get and don't deserve the same as the rest of us. I am so happy you donate female hygiene products, they are always the hardest to come by, and just the other night I was ranting to my boyfriend about how expensive they are and how unfair it is they are not free and readily available to all women. Reading this piece inspired me to send an email to the women's shelter where I live and see if they will accept a donation of sanitary pads. Thank you!
