donate clothing to Fashion Project

I absolutely love any project that serves to help women love themselves more. Love is at  the core of who we are – and loving ourselves is the foundation for loving each other, too. So, I partnered this month with The Motherhood, Fashion Project, C. Wonder and Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) to spread the word not only about the amazing things Look Good Feel Better does to help women overcome the appearance related side effects of cancer treatment, but also to let you know how easily it is for you to help too (hint: I have a great idea for what you can do with those clothes in your closet you don’t wear anymore).

This coming month through Sept 18th, any gently used clothing you donate to the Fashion Project will directly benefit the Look Good Feel Better organization.

The plan is this: you donate in C. Wonder stores or online here, you receive a 20% discount on a future C. Wonder purchase (of $100 or more), then take a look at Fashion Project and see if there’s anything there you’d like to purchase as well (to benefit LGFB, natch). Hit up those closets in the next week so you can take advantage of this wonderful campaign!

Your donated items will be sold by Fashion Project as well, with 55% proceeds going to LGFB. All these companies partnering together for the benefit of women – it warms my heart. And it’s so easy to help, don’t you think? You can even order a free donation bag or print out a free shipping label – yes shipping your items is free!

look good feel better helps cancer survivors

Look Good Feel Better does these amazing workshops catered to address the unique issues with hair, skin, and more that women experience after cancer treatments. Beauty and styling techniques and other resources that women might need that we probably have never thought of. It’s such a specialized service but oh so important, don’t you think? Since LGFB started in 1989 over 900,000 women have participated – isn’t that incredible?!

I adore that this organization exists, and I thought you might too!

When You Find Your Family’s Heartbeat

My husband and I had gone camping as kids growing up, and even been camping once as a couple before kids. But we never took the camping plunge as a family of six, before last month. And when the time came to prep camp bins and pack up a duffle bag and load up the […]

We are creating traditions every year with our growing family, and one thing I have always loved is creating Easter crafts and making Easter treats. Something about the Spring colors, the new life. It inspires me, and I start feeling adventurous. This year we got a little over the top (in that I attempted something […]

How the morning drop off changed our family

We really had no idea how our lives would fully change when we made the decision to switch from homeschooling to public school last fall. Of course we expected plenty of change, but we couldn’t foresee all the fires we would need to put out, adjust, or get used to. One significant thing that changed […]

If you are having (another) snow day

As so many of you are stuck inside, bundled up and maybe even having your millionth snow day in a row — I wanted to send you a little love and encouragement today from the desert. Because even though it doesn’t seem like we desert folk understand your pain, we do, and I will need […]

Turning your hobby into a business

When I started blogging almost 10 years ago, I never thought I would have taken my writing and blogging all the places I have in this past decade. I probably would have said you were off your rocker if you told me what I’d be doing with my blog in 2014.  I thought it was […]

I’m scared of being mediocre

  I had this realization recently. I’m terrified of being mediocre. How that plays out in my life is that I don’t shoot for the moon, I don’t go big or go home, I’m not balls to the wall. None of that. I just slink back, try to disappear and be “less” so that at […]

I have found you

I don’t know if the last day of January is the ideal time to finally share my word of the year, but here we are so let’s just sit down for a minute. I’m imagining us (you and me and all of us)sitting in a circle in a yurt, all sharing our words (let’s pretend […]
