July Fourth is the biggest shopping day of the year for me. I save up for it. I plan for it. I have been carrying around two Yankee Candle gift cards for months, just waiting for the big shopping day. I have to say it was a successful operation. I got my Yankee Candle fix and some cute things to wear to the Influence Conference. There was rumor Goodwill was having a big sale, so we decided to make that our next stop.
This is where the story changes a bit. I left Goodwill with nine bras. Not for me but for Free the Girls. I didn’t even know Goodwill sold bras, but they do and they are only 99 cents. I decided to spend ten dollars. Even buying all the bras they had, I came out under budget. Do you remember when I told you about the nonprofit that is helping women who have been rescued out of the sex slave industry by setting them up with as entrepreneurs? Do you remember I told you I was holding a bra drive? I am and I really need your help. Most likely you have bras that you are willing to part with. They don’t fit or they aren’t your style anymore. Please go through your drawers and give me your bras. Talk to your co-workers. I would love to see a bunch of office bra drives! If you can hold an office bra drive let me know. I have some prizes in the works. (If you have a prize you or your company would like to donate, let me know. I’ll be sure to give you a shout out!)
Some of ya’ll may be in a place where you can do more than donate bras you have stuffed in the back of your underwear drawer. I would like to ask ya’ll to go to Goodwill and buy bras. I am so excited to see how much we can give. If you are local please get in touch with me so we can coordinate a pick up. Or you can bring them to me at Seacoast West.
Let’s make Mrs. Pate Write’s Bra Drive happen. Let’s bless the precious daughters in Africa who have been rescued. Let’s do as much good as we can.
Have bras to ship me?
