I thought I'd share some season joy from me and my family below. Its somewhat relevant seeing as it was completely funded through thrifting throughout the year.
We were blessed with the opportunity to give back to our community this year, to the most unfortunately of kids. One of our school districts is known for having some of the lowest poverty in our city. These elementary kids are considered below poverty, and many of them do not get a meal on the weekends when away from school. Their school has set up a program that is completely funded through donations and volunteers, where they are able to pack snacks and food for these kids to take home to eat on Saturdays and Sundays. If it were not for these snack-packs, most of these kids would not have anything to eat for two days. The snack-packs have to be small enough in size to be able to safely fit inside their backpacks. All of these kids walk home from school, and are victims of being robbed of any items seen during their walks.
So this year, the program has decided to gift these kids with a small gift for them to take home for christmas, along with their normal meal packs. The gift will most likely be the only gift they receive. The school totals about 190 kids, K-6th. My wife and I had a heavy heart for these kids, because their lifestyle situation is out of their control. No kid should have to struggle for food, let alone not feeling special enough on christmas to receive a gift. So my wife and I decided to take on 80 kids this year, and gift them with a small toy, and a small clothing item. We individually wrapped all these gifts, so that they may try and feel the joy and magic of christmas during the season. We dropped off the gifts last night to the school, who will disburse them next week before the kids are out for break. Our trunk was completely full, along with most of the backseat!
Its crazy to see what this community of fellow thrifters opens up for you. Seeing as this was completely funded through my meager thrifting trips, and flipping the profits. I was able to set aside enough money to complete this and give some kids a magical christmas! Maybe next year I'll be able to wear my santa suit and pass them out to each kid!
My thanks to DazedState for rising to a daunting challenge: I'm the only female in the exchange. He sent a gorgeous pair of cashmere gloves and a scarf (for me), an oatmeal lambswool Pendleton cardigan that we will forward to my father-in-law because he rocks cardigans like only stately older gentlemen can do, and a pair of jeans for my husband which are NOT pictured because he is wearing them.
Something to wear, something to listen to, something to drink, and something to read. Really generous @futuremyth —thanks so much. Hard to pick a favorite, but I really love the Wings + Horns blazer.
@Snoogz , that is awesome and incredibly generous of you to help out so many kids in the community. Three cheers for @Snoogz !!
Huge fan of those Wings + Horns Ikat blazers. Good job @futuremyth!
Mines going out tomorrow (priority) because I'm the worst!
Many thanks to @kbadgley for my awesome thriftmas gift, a great pair of minty AE loafers and some spectacular ties:
Edit: to my giftee, yours ships out tomorrow. With our disparity in sizes and styles, I had to use a lifeline and phone a friend for a good gift.
Shoutout to my SS @hooker4186 , found something unbelievable in a difficult size. Fits me perfect and I can't wait to bust it out!
For those not in the know, it's a Daiki era woolrich piece.
Shoutout to @jdrizzy for my Thriftmas box! Zegna suit, Zegna and Kiton ties, two pocket squares, and a VERY thoughtful hand-rolled handkerchief with my initials!
Zegna SUIT?! Very nice!
