  3. What a wonderful thing you and all concerned are doing.:-) It warms my heart to know that there are still people to find the time in their busy lifestyles to find it in their hearts to continue to pay it forward. The other aspect of your organization I like is nothing comes from nothing and those that are on the less fortunate side in need, also pay forward in donating time to keep costs down as well as, It is quite humbling to ask for help, but when you are giving back in return it softens the blow.

    In ending 1st and foremost you are absolutely wonderful folk for starting a charity as such and the lengths you went through in order to do so. And last but not least. I have an enormous amount of gingerly worn clothing I would like to donate. If someone would be so kind to get back to me with this information, It would be great-fully appreciated.
