A local church near us has come up with a unique way to raise money for charity.
They’ve asked ladies of the community to donate gently used scarves and jewelry to support Hope Works which provides support and advocacy to survivors of sexual, dating, and domestic violence, and aims to be the catalyst in the community to change the cultural norms that allow sexual and domestic violence to happen.
While I don’t have much jewelry (most of it was stolen 15 years ago) I do have scarves that have seldom or never been worn.
I have a lot of music theme scarves that I used to wear to gigs. I don’t gig much anymore so I’m happy to donate my rarely worn ones to this cause.
I have a beautiful silk poncho by Liz Claiborne that I’ve never worn.
It’s not really my style.
Plus I have theme scarves that are not exactly my cup of tea.
I love when a good purpose for thinning my overflowing drawers is dropped in my lap.
It’s also important that people show up for the sale.
What could you support?
