Generally speaking, the well-known maxim of give, and you shall receive refers to the intangible feelings of good will that come with helping, reaching out and extending oneself for the sake of others. We love those feelings. But sometimes, if we’re being completely honest, we appreciate a carrot. You know, an extra little bit of get-up-and-go to take us from wistfully pondering all the ways to do good in this world to, um, actually getting up and doing one of them. Candystore Collective’s Winter Coat Drive is just the mid-January kick in the pants we need to lend our support to a worthy local organization. Through Jan.
With the New Year, we all get a fresh start. Why not give your closet one, too? The benefits of an end-of-year closet clean-out extend far beyond better-organized shelves and shoe racks by helping worthy local charitable organizations fund their programs and provide clothing to families and individuals in need. So grab a giveaway bag and get started. When you’re done, any one of these local non-profits will be happy to give your pre-loved goods a second life.
