A couple of weeks ago I posted about The Basics Charity Challenge by Cara of Cara Quilts.
After contacting Jackie from Coldwater I learned that not only is Coldwater in need of food for their pantry they are also in need of girls clothing (of all ages). I immediately wanted to rush down to my basement and pull out clothes that no longer fit my kids. Then I thought for a second..."you have 3 boys!". After a few more moments went by I remembered that I had a bunch of NEW short-sleeved girls shirts sitting in a bin downstairs.
I purchased them on clearance last Fall in hopes to build up some inventory for Monster shirts. Well, I never got around to utilizing them so off they go to Coldwater. I have no doubt that they will be put to good use :) I also picked up some paper towels since they were on the list of "other" items. If you haven't already, I hope you take a minute to read Cara's post. You may just be inspired to help someone in a way you thought was too simple to really effect anyone (like paper towels).
Are there any local charities that you like to donate to?
