I have a hard time letting of things myself sometimes. What makes it easier for me is to admit that it isn’t worth anything just sitting in my closet. Imagine the joy it could bring to someone who will wear it to an interview and land the job that will change their lives forever. Makes it easier to let it go, right?
This philosophy of passing things on to bring joy to others is the inspiration for this project. Each month I choose a different local organization that has a real need for items that I typically see a lot of when helping clients get organized. As part of my services, I collect donations and deliver them to the drop-off site on your behalf. If I’m already organizing for you, there is no additional charge for this service.
First up is The Birthday Party Project!
This organization is based in Addison, TX and they “bring joy to homeless children through the magic of birthdays.”
They host birthday parties for homeless children, donating their time and party supplies to give kids joy on their special day!
Their current wish list includes:
- party supplies (hats, blowers, banners, birthday badges)
- toys (all ages, $30 value)
- plastic round and rectangular tablecloths
- gift wrapping supplies and bags
- gift cards (target, walmart, visa, toys r us)
I know some of you have these things lying around taking up space. Think of the happiness they can bring to a child if you let them go!
For more information, please check out their website at www.thebirthdaypartyproject.org. They also need volunteers to help host their parties. How fun, and what a worthy cause!
