bad news and good news

Which would you like first? I always like the bad news first, just to get it over with and end on a good note, with the good news. So here it is...

The bad news: I have yet to receive a single donation for In The Image this month.

The good news: Because of this I have been on a rampage constantly going through my stuff finding more things I can live without.

I try not to make people feel bad here, because every person has a reason to donate or not to donate. I don't like to point fingers or think differently of others for the outcome of each month. So I've decided maybe this month isn't about how much others give, but how much I have to give

I have an insane amount of extra things like hats, sweatshirts, gloves, etc. when someone out there doesn't even have one thing. So I've been sorting and realizing how incredibly blessed I've been. And how I need to spread the love. So far I've put one winter coat, two sweatshirts, two scarves, one pair of warm socks, one pair of jeans, one comforter, one pair of sweatpants, two winter hats and two pairs of gloves all in my DONATE pile. And if no one else can donate this month, well that is still thirteen items that will keep someone warm instead of sitting in my closet this winter. 

If you would like to donate this month, In The Image is in great need of warm weather items such as coats, hats, boots, gloves, etc. Please contact me ASAP or click here to make a donation online!

Be the change. Make the difference.

  1. I have a coat plus some other pieces of clothing. Barbie and I are going to connect with you after Thanksgiving, okay? Truly, truly . . . I didn't forget!
