You've heard of extreme couponing, right? Well, Christina Huffines and Tanorria Askew are putting this hobby/skill to good use with their organization called Dotted Line Divas.
Dotted Line Divas is a faith-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization where they purchase items at significant discounts with coupons and then given to families in need.
Since their start in 2014, they have helped over 2,500 families throughout central Indiana and are looking to partner with organizations and churches all over the state.
The Dotted Line Divas also opened their own Personal Care Pantry in 2016 where you can shop and purchase the products at a discounted rate to help fund more purchases for Dotted Line Divas!
