Wardrobe Cleanup Goes to Charity

Cleaning up my wardrobe on weekends (and even some days) when it is too cold to go out kept me busy these past couple of weeks. These 6 bags goes to charity and is going to be picked up this morning. 
Not sure what the organization is going to do with it whether they are going to be sent to third world countries to resell, recycle or reuse or sell them here at bazaars to raise money one thing is sure these clothes are not going to waste and landfill.

Feeling good today? Why not sponsor a dress!

Time flies so fast we are now on the second half of the year 2019. I think it is time once again to think if this year is a good year to make a difference. Check out these clothes available for sponsorship  and for the price of perhaps 3 cups of coffee you can make a difference to a life of a disadvantaged child this year. Just click on any of the images below and check them out and if you are feeling good why not sponsor one of them.

Other types of clothes are also available for sponsorships in my Dress A Girl shop. Just click on any of the images above or click here. Thank you.
