I’ve been guilty of hoarding. Yes, sometimes the closet gets filled with clothes I no longer wear. Which is wrong – wrong – wrong. Just because I’m not wearing it doesn’t mean it’s not right for someone else.
I’m lucky that my younger brother, Wyatt works at the local resale shop – the CRC. So it’s easy for me to pack up the clothes I no longer wear and donate them.
Now it’s just as easy for everyone. I’m not sure how long this program has been running, but I’m super excited to blog about it.
The next time you order something from Nordstrom, a gift for yourself or others, challenge yourself to fill the box (with something you’re no longer wearing) and send it back.
There’s a million reasons why you aren’t wearing something – it doesn’t fit, it’s not your color, it reminds you of a bad date, bla bla bla – whatever, let it go & do some good.
This holiday season I want to challenge everyone to think beyond traditional or trendy gifts. I’m a huge supporter of shopping for unique gifts.
I’m also a huge supporter of buying gifts that give back. Note that none of the gifts I’ll be mentioning throughout the season are paid endorsements. If I’m blogging about a gift idea, it’s because I saw it and said WOW.
First up from Skateboards for Hope:
I like the look of decks on the wall, but I’m really liking the idea of skate deck masks on the wall.
I encourage girls to skateboard because the skills you learn on the board will help you off the board. But the truth is you need a board to skate. So, if you have the opportunity to help someone who otherwise would not have access to a board – well that’s an awesome gift.
I am happy to report back from the Poseiden Foundation about their 11th annual Ladies Day at the Berrics event!
“Poseiden aims to teach youth to believe in themselves and to fulfill their dreams by creating life changing experiences through empowerment, love, and support [through skateboarding].”
For the competition part, the highlight of the event was the masters’ division “Bricks at the Berrics” contest and Adaptive Skate.
The adaptive skate contest was created so that a female on any type of wheels could participate. Alyssa Montenegro, from USA a Paralympic athlete, won the Adaptive Skate Best Trick.
Natalie Das, from USA in masters’ division, won “Bricks at The Berrics”, Kaya Isa from Japan, an Olympic hopeful, won both Open Best Trick and Game of S.K.A.T.E., Margie Didal, from the Philippines another Olympic hopeful, won the 7-Stair Pro!
The day was ended with a Hippie Jump contest where FireFly jumped over 4’ high!
