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?

I'm so proud of you, Beth! Coldwater (& Jackie Knabe) is a wonderful non-profit in Lee's Summit! They do some amazing things for our community:)
