I am doing a collection for my Eagle Scout Project. The end goal is to make self-soothing kits to donate to Pflag Austin which is an organization that has support meetings for LGBTQ+ people.

Suggested items for the kits: Bath bubbles and bombs, lip gloss and balm, journals and pens, essential oils, perfume (sample bottles), bubbles (blowing bubbles for kids), fidget toys, coloring books for adults, crayons, lotion, make up, Tea, Chocolate, Novels or books you like that have a happy ending, stress ball, candles, chewing gum, headphones, silly putty, worry stones/inspiration stones, mints, hot chocolate, cinnamon sticks, etc. (all items must be new, sealed, and unexpired).

There is a collection box in front of the school office.

These are kits to help people through tough emotional times. If you ever feel bad and want to build a kit like this at school, please go see Mac counselor Bree Borgsteadt.

Thank you,
Beatrix (please email julieziegelman@gmail.com with any questions)
