Did you know that families in America are not just struggling to purchase food, but also household goods like soap and shampoo? A 2013 study conducted by FeedingAmerica.org found that of those surveyed who were unable to afford basic household goods, 55% reported skipping shampooing and 33% reported bathing without soap.
That is a heartbreaking statistic when you think about it. So what can you do? Redeem a coupon. High Ridge Brands (the maker of Zest, Alberto V05, White Rain, Coast and Rave) recently announced that consumers can help the company donate up to three million showers-worth of soap, shampoo, conditioner and other essential items to impoverished families across America by simply redeeming coupons.
