What's a Plusability?? #PGMom #Plusabilities

You all know that giving back and helping in my community is an important value of mine. I particularly like it when my purchases and favourite brands provide assistance to causes I support. And you may remember my weekly series from last year on my de-cluttering efforts (Minimize Mondays), and the slews of gently used clothing, toys, and household items that we donated to charities to help those in need. This is an ongoing effort, and we always have a clear recycling bag ready for items to be donated. This coming weekend, I have a new place to bring our latest bag of goodies!

P&G has released a new Tide Plus collection, bringing you the amazing clean of Tide with added benefits (plus!), like Febreze scent and Downy softness. To commemorate the launch of this new collection, Tide is taking Plusabilities to the next level, encouraging Canadians to fling out the old and bring in the new! To help us in our efforts, and to help those in need, a Tide truck will be visiting popular family attractions in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal over the next few weeks, picking up gently used clothing donations to celebrate new beginnings with its not for profit partner, Goodwill.

Ready to purge the wardrobe and donate? This change of season is a great time for it, and be sure to involve your kids when you select items for donation. Have them go through their clothes and identify what doesn't fit or any items they no longer wear. Explain to them why you are donating, and whom their donations will help. Then by making these donations to Goodwill during Tide Clothing Donation Day events, you’re not only de-cluttering your home, you’re also teaching your kids the value of giving back and the ripple effect, or Plusabilities, behind a simple good deed. 

For instance, giving your threads a second life through Goodwill can:
  • Give someone confidence going to a job interview
  • Make a kid smile going to class with a cool pair of sneakers
  • Enable skills development and employment and work experience for those who face employment barriers
  • Support community-based programs through the funds raised, as Goodwill donates 82 per cent of its revenue
To thank Canadians for their support, when they drop off a donation they’ll receive a Tide Plus coupon booklet so they can experience more of the Tide they love at home.

The cap features two textures: bristles for deep down scrubbing and a flatter portion to spread the detergent around.
Tide Plus Bleach Alternative- designed to give you whiter and brighter fabrics after one wash.*

We totally could have used this for the Teen's football and rugby uniforms!
But it will still come in handy for Boo's stinky karate gi.
