Like every Sunday morning I got up and dragged my butt to the laundry mat. I was standing there folding my laundry when a chick about my age came up to me and asked if I had a little girl. I said yes. Then she asked me where she could find sleepers for 24month size. I told her to go to Target because they usually have them, or Children's Orchard, a second hand store for kids.
Come to find out she was at the laundry mat the weekend before, and it was super busy. She said she had loads in different areas all over the mat, and at some point someone took all of her little girls clothes. That made my heart sink!
Then, I realized somewhere in my house I have a bag full of my daughters old clothes. I told, Lisa is her name, that if she called me next weekend I would give her my daughters clothes. They are just sitting there taking up space. She was so thankful and wrote down my number. I always save my daughters clothes just in case I come across someone who needs them. I never give them to thrift stores, because I would rather give them to someone for free.
In this economical challenging time, I really feel like we should all help each other out, even if it is as small as giving clothes to people who really need it.
