Doing good with suits
Tuesday, April 24, 2012
I only wear jeans when I am doing work around the house and in the garden. I really don't find them very comfortable. So, I don't have skinny jeans waiting for me to one day love them again.
Instead, I have several suits that are size 12 and 14 that have been in my closet for at least 10 years. My two favorite ones are wool and I paid really good money for them way back when. I have decided that **sigh** me pining away at never being able to wear them isn't doing anyone any good hence I made the decision that I should donate them to a worthy cause.
Dress for success www.dressforsuccess.org/
is a great organization that helps women who were abused, addicted or otherwise not able to get employment to obtain job skills, find employment and start life anew. However, they were not accepting donations at this time.
I have nothing against Good Will or Salvation Army, I just did not want my beloved $200 suit to end up a shredded halloween costume.
Anyway, after much searching, I was able to find The Center For Urban Families in baltimore City. www.cfuf.org/
The organization is doing a lot of work not only with women but men as well. They accept gently used professional clothing for women and men. I believe that this is where my suit (and other professional attire) is destined to be helping women to support their family and become self sufficient.
Now if only good deeds would shed some pounds; I would be ready for the Cat Walk!
