AYear Of Kindness - Challenge Week 48

Can you believe it is December already?  I lost most of November to back pain and kidney stone issues. I'm grateful that I was well enough to be home and to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family. But I'm quite happy to bid adieu to November. Looking forward to a much kinder and gentler December!

And of course for most of us December means colder temperatures and Christmas. So the challenge for this week is to DONATE CLOTHING. 

Especially coats, hats, mittens, etc. Do a quick purge of your wardrobe and coat closet. Pull out anything that no longer fits, no longer suits, or is no longer needed. This is the time of year when the less fortunate really need these items. And there are so many places that will take your gently-worn pre-owned clothing off your hands! Some will even pick up. Just Google "Where can I donate clothes" and see for yourself.

I'm glad you are feeling a lot better.

Yes, you make the important point that the charities need winter clothing in the winter months because they often have nowhere to store the wrong season stuff

This is very spooky,Cheri....I actually left a charity bag of clothes and books outside my house this morning to be collected by a local charity.

Glad you're feeling better! Thanks for the challenge.I have a big bag that's been sitting in the closet waiting to go for several weeks. I'll be sure to send it off this week.

I'm so glad you are feeling better. What a great reminder that of course charities need winter clothes in the winter.

So glad you were able to enjoy time with your girls home for Thanksgiving! Great challenge for this week - I really need to try on my coats/jackets & see what I still like, etc.

So glad you are feeling better Cheri - hope December is much nicer to you than Nov :)

Donating clothing is always such a good thing, I've been sorting out for that and missing the food bank donations - need to find a place to do that.
