We love the idea of recycling. Aside from how fun it is, thrifting is one way we choose to contribute to reducing waste on this planet. But we don’t simply relish in the thrill of our finds; we also give back by donating to our local thrift stores or local charities. We all know people who take and take and take some more. And we all hate to see those people come our way, don’t we? So don’t be that person.
If you incorporate thrifting into your lifestyle, get some and give some. Get some really great stuff, but also give really great stuff for others’ benefit. Thrift stores and charities thrive on our generosity. If you expect someone else to give, why shouldn’t you?
FYI: If you’re looking for an opportunity to clean out your closet, consider donating items to Emory Fellowship’s Bridges of Hope Great Clothes and Coats Giveaway. On Nov. 10th, the ministry will give away (at no cost) clothes to women, men, and children in need. If you have gently worn clothes or coats, blankets, or comforters, let us know! We’d be happy to pass on more information or even coordinate picking up items if you’re in the DMV.
We believe in giving back, ya’ll. We hope you do too! Support your local thrift store or charity!
