Tommy Hilfiger

I just wanted to do a quick update saying that I got a very nice donation from Tommy Hilfiger. They were one of the first companies to respond to me, granting a donation. So, for the past couple of months, I have been corresponding with Betsy Hilfiger, and she's been so great. Thank you Betsy and everybody at Tommy Hilfiger. :)

Other than that, I don't have much to say. I've just been really busy with school. I cannot wait for summer. I promise I'll have more later!

Today my mom, sister and I went to the storage unit to do inventory. Let me tell you, I thought that this would be super easy. It was not easy at all. I now have a newfound respect for anybody that works in retail.

The reason that I wanted to do inventory was because I really needed to know what type of clothing that I was in need of. People that donate keep asking me if there's any specific sizes that I need, and I have lately been telling them, whatever works. Well, after organizing everything and seeing what I have, I definitely know what's needed.

I have to say, one thing that was really cool was being able to hang everything up and seeing what's been donated. The clothes are all so great. I know that the people that sent these donations to me really put time and effort into what they sent. Everything so far is just so fabulous. Nothing at all is cheap or not well made.

I know that for the past couple of blog entries I have been promising pictures. Today I'm finally following through with that promise! My mom took a bunch of pictures today. :) I don't really have much else to say, just that this whole project is going so much better than I ever thought that it would. Not in my wildest dreams could I have imagined this type of success.

So, that's all for now! I don't know if I mentioned this in my last blog post or not, but I will be speaking at my church April 18th! I'm very excited. If you can come that day that would be super incredible. I go to Redwood Covenant Church.

Also, if you happen to have hangers that you don't need, I REALLY could use them. Please email me.
