Women's Community House. In a previous life I used to sell clothing for a direct sales company and I had been storing a whole ton of brand new ladies clothing that I didn't know what to do with. Sure, I sold some of it, but I ended up still having a lot of really nice clothing that I couldn't use. When I started pulling out what I had, I couldn't believe it. 35 plus pieces of brand new clothing! We're talking jeans, jackets, shirts and more. And then I also had some brand new accessories - jewellery and scarves. It was a jackpot!
Soon I had filled 2 big boxes and off I went to the Women's Community House. For obvious reasons the security is tight at the shelter, but I was able to pile my donations in the lobby along with all the others. I was quite taken aback by how much was there on a random weekday morning. And I felt good adding my bit to the bin.
When I pulled away I was practically in tears; I was thinking about those brave women and children and thinking that if nothing else, those items might bring a smile to their faces and show them there still is some good out there. I couldn't believe how amazing the act ofgiving made me feel. I felt grateful and happy and that brought a smile to my face .
Give a little; give a lot....just give and you really do receive! Happy Holidays!
