Send One Suit Weekend FEB 24-27

I just found out about a great opportunity for us ladies to support. Clean out your closets of all the things that no longer fit, you have not used in a month, or just give it up, never wear. It is a great way for us to help other ladies out. I know I need to get rid of plenty of clothes/shoes and this is the perfect way to get rid of them. Why not help someone who needs it?

From February 24-27, gently-used suits, pants, shirts, skirts, shoes and other professional items can be donated at any of the 825 dressbarn locations nationwide. These donations will be distributed amongst local non-profit organizations to be given to less fortunate women looking to re-enter the workforce.

About Dress for Success-
Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Since starting operations in 1997, Dress for Success has expanded to more than 100 cities in the U.S., Australia, Canada, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, the UK and the West Indies. To date, Dress for Success has helped more than 500,000 women work towards self-sufficiency. Visit to learn more.

So since I am telling you 22 days in advance, you will have enough time to clean out your closets, and pass the word along. Let us all help each other. It does not matter if you give 1 item, or tell 1 person, it matters that you do something. I always hear people saying they never have time to volunteer or help out like I do, here is your chance. And if you donate, take a pic, email me, I would love to post all the pics at the end of the month. I will post pics of my donations as well!!
