Tide Loads of Hope

Even though, laundry is my least favorite "chore"...I really do like having clean clothes. And, more importantly I am thankful just to have clothes. I was asked by BlogHer to share with y'all to help get the word out about efforts to raise money via T-shirt sales to support families that are affected by disaster in the one-of-a-kind program. I am not receiving any money to share this with read below about the program and then click on the link at the end. Spread the word.

From Tide's Loads of Hope Website: Tide Loads of Hope helps in the aftermath of a natural disaster by providing clean clothes and a sense of comfort to families in need. Partnering with Feeding America, we travel to disaster affected neighborhoods with the Tide Loads of Hope truck or vans, our free mobile laundry service.

Tide Loads of Hope truck:
  • 32 high-effiency washers and dryers stationed on the truck
  • Can do 300 wash and dry cycles a day -equal to one year's worth of laundry for a single family
  • Will wash about 9,000 loads of laundry over a four-week period
  • Leveraged during massive disasters where electricity is unavailable in the region
Tide Loads of Hope vans:
  • In partnership with a local laundromat, the Tide Loads of Hope vans provide free laundry service at the same load rate as the trucks
  • Leveraged during disasters where neighboring communities still have a source of electricity
To date, Tide Loads of Hope has washed more than 35,000 loads of laundry for over 20,000 families. Most importantly, the Tide Loads of Hope program means we're equipped to take action whenever and wherever there is a need in our country.

Tide Loads of Hope Vintage Tees:

Tide Loads of Hope can also be supported through the purchase of a Tide Vintage Tee. All profits go to support families affected by disaster.

The shirts are vintage-looking and support a great cause.

Shirts can be purchased through this link:
