We are Accepted Ministry A family ministry out of Hardy Arkansas which is up in the north eastern part of the state. We live in a rural area where the need of socks underwear and personal hygiene products such as deodorant soap's diapers and other basic essentials are unable to be bought because families cannot afford them . we started providing these items of personal hygiene last August when our 12-year-old son collected 2300 pairs of socks and underwear and gave them out to a local Church school event. What turned into a little project spiraled into a wonderful gift that God let us be able to do and provide for others in the community through donations from local businesses and family and friends that we came in contact with. We prayed and turned the project into a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We really wanted to help with the need of basic essentials that so many people take for granted to be able to just give a little back to other struggling families that need these items to keep clean safe and healthy for school work and every day just getting around. The reason why we do this is because when we first came to Arkansas about three years ago we started out in a tent and we really went from having what we thought was everything to having nothing and starting out from the ground and going up. God worked through different people to help provide work and housing and other items that we needed. Those basic items that we used to take for granted such as soap and toilet paper and clean socks and underwear were a luxury so we wanted to be able to give back to other families in the area And take the burden Away about worry for these items that nobody should have to go without. Since our ministry is becoming more well known we are asking for supporters on go fund me to help us provide more items of all sizes for underwear men and women & children, socks ,diapers, wipes toothpaste & other oral hygiene products and other personal hygiene products such as soaps shampoos, lotions . We were figuring that an average family of four if were to buy the basic essentials that we are providing that are donated it's around $100 and that is because these items are usually bought overtime but some of these families don't have any of these items and they need them all at once. A lot of the families around here have more than four people in their family so what we're trying to do right now is give them what we have which isn't much. since everything is by donation we have to see what sizes are donated and a lot of the families we are not able to give everybody underwear or everybody deodorant and they have to just get what is given to them at the time. We are really trying to build up our stock and be able to help any family size with any ages and any sizes that ask for help and have them not wait for these items that are so basic but such a necessity. We really appreciate your help and hope that we can meet our goal to be able to provide for families and hopefully with lots of prayer that this ministry can spread further than Arkansas someday .God is such a good provider and he is working through us and we know that he will work through others to keep helping so many people that are in need and someday maybe those people can return the favor and give to others that were in their shoes just like we were.✝️
