health kits for new orleans

Would you like to be part of a health kit making party?

we could make these kits and send them down.
here's what's needed (i think we could probably get a ton of these things from 99cent store for really cheap and stuffed into individual ziploc baggies). Lemme know if you wanna

1 hand towel (15” x 25” up to 17” x 27”)
1 wash cloth
1 comb (large and sturdy, not pocket-sized)
1 nail file or fingernail clippers (no emery boards or toenail clippers)
1 bath-size bar of soap (3 oz and up)
1 toothbrush (single brush only in original wrapper; no child-sized brushes)
1 large tube of toothpaste (4.5 or larger, expiration date must be 6 months or longer in advance of the date of shipment to Sager Brown)
6 adhesive plastic strip sterile bandages

If we all got $20 worth of one item we could probably make quite a few of these things. maybe 50?

Lemme know if you want to do this and feel free to pass it along.

We could do it tomorrow afternoon or Sunday in the afternoon or something. My house is in Greenpoint and I would love to have you here otherwise maybe we could meet in Williamsburg and t ake over some tables at a bar or something.
