Here is a little something to go with the August 2012 Visiting Teaching Message, Taking Action in Time of Need. It’s a tiny emergency kit, that includes the visiting teachers’ contact information – to encourage a sister to contact her teachers when in need.
It reads, “When in need, open for… a helping hand, a listening ear, a casserole or a cupcake.” The casserole or cupcake part is meant to be a little tongue in cheek – we don’t all make that kind of food when serving our sisters – but a lot of us do! 🙂 Contact info is to be hand written in the space provided. After that it reads, “For all other needs, check inside tin”, with an arrow pointing to the packed goodies.
The goodies I found around my house included bandages, gum, cough drops, pen, safety pins, paper clips, lip balm, rubber bands, postage stamp, coins, needle and thread, birthday candle, button, bobby pins and toothpicks. An emery board cut in half would also be a nice addition. This is nice to throw in the car or purse, and every time it’s opened, she is reminded who can be called upon when she really is in need.
I printed my file on Full-Sheet Labels, then adhered them to an empty Altoids Wintergreen Mints tin. If you don’t have label paper, you could print on cardstock, then modpodge to your tin.
