The Best Hour.

May 17, 2012


Erin Schrader

Oh, you guys.
I wish I could appropriately express how I feel right now.
Sometimes words on a blog post don’t do something justice.
And this is one of those moments.

Tonight was the 2nd annual clothes drive that I hosted and oh sweet baby, it was wonderful.

To experience girls jumping up and down when finding an item they love, or seeing two friends show each other their bags full of clothes, to have to answer “yes it’s alllllllll free” when girls ask
“Is this honestly all free…and all for us?!?”
Those are the moments that make this life so great.
And believe me, it was great.

Thank you so much to each and every one of you who helped contribute clothes this year.
Your generosity will forever be appreciated.
I wish you all could have been there with me to experience their gratitude and excitement.
But do not worry–I have pictures.
Are we surprised?

My hope in sharing this with all of you is that it will spark an interest in a few of you to do something similar in your area. It is easy. It is fun. And it is so rewarding.

Any questions on how to get it started in your area, email me at livinginyellow@gmail.com

You have so much power to change a persons life. Whether it be for an hour or eternity.
Or through a pair of shoes or a smile.
You are capable.

What are you waiting for?

PS. There is a great link-up going on today over at Emmy June that I am participating in.
Check it out and be inspired.
