More info on WINK Bags:
A mother inspired by the near death drowning of her three year old son, created “When In Need of Kindness” (WINK) toiletry bags. When one buys a WINK bag, one bag will be donated to The Ronald McDonald House Family Rooms. WINK is the only product of its kind and at an affordable price point of $25. A WINK bag is a unique and meaningful gift.
The story behind WINK: At 11:00 AM on June 18th last summer my three year old son Clay almost died by drowning in a community pool. Our best friends were watching him and our six year old daughter Maison. We arrived on the scene to our daughter running out of the pool screaming, "I think Clay died!" "I think Clay died!" We came in to find Clay, lying on the pool deck, blue, lifeless, with no breath or heartbeat. It was an absolutely horrific event with a beautiful ending. Our son survived to make a miraculous recovery. My website has the entire story http://www.winkbags.com
WINK sells fashionable toiletry bags with fun products inside. When one buys a WINK bag, one bag (filled with the basic toiletries) will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Family Rooms across the U.S. If a parent is in that room, things are not good. These basic necessities can help them through a time when they are confronted with a critically ill child. When In Need of Kindness. A loving WINK. Isn't that all we really need? A knowing smile, acknowledging nod or a comforting wink during tragedy or just everyday life. Life can be hard. We all need some kindness everyday. The entire story http://www.winkbags.com
