As regular blog-readers may know, I like to post a suggestion or inspiration every week for people looking for ways to change the world. God has given me the amazing opportunity to work with beautiful young women, who either have been or are at risk of being sexually exploited, at the Empowered Living Academy. Many of the program participants have young children and are unable at this point in life to afford warm clothing for the upcoming winter. This weekend was below freezing in Atlanta, so the kids definitely need clothes. Therefore, this week’s suggestion of how you can change the world is to help us love these women by helping them provide for their families. This is a somewhat shameless request, as I would get the benefit of seeing this suggestion affect the lives of women I love. However, I can personally assure you that this need is very felt by those who would be receiving your donation, and therefore it would be used immediately. It’s not often you can get that type of assurance for in-kind donations. Plus, who doesn’t love shopping for kids clothing? I mean, talk about adorable.
Also, if any of you have clothing your own children have grown out of, previously loved (used) items are also appreciated.
So, if this is something you would like to do, here is what the children need and how to get it to them
For girls, clothing in size 3T, coats for all sizes!
For boys, clothing for 3-6 months, clothing for sizes 2T/3T, Jacket size 4T, and shoes size 8, coats for all sizes!
They can be mailed to:
860 Johnson Ferry Road Suites 140-331
Atlanta, GA 30342
Thank you so much for considering this request. It truly will change the world for these wonderful, driven young women.
