Women-In-Need! After the close of the random online poll last week, the charity that will receive donations from The Fashion Fast is Women-In-Need.
Now, this is personally exciting because I have volunteered with WIN for a while, in a few capacities and now find myself on the Associates Committee (basically the junior board) of the charity. It's an organization that promotes health, stability, and growth in women that have, at one point or another, found themselves in the need of government housing and other assistance, but who are on the right track to living their lives independently.
Most of these women have children, most don't have a spouse or partner, many are young, many have had drug problems, most have been physically, sexually, or verbally abused, some have been evicted from their homes, others are just have no where else to go. The one thing that they all have in common though, is that they are women simply trying to make their personal world better for both themselves and their children.
So, if not for me and my endeavors with The Fashion Fast, find a little spare change ($1, $5, $10, whatever) and donate it to this exceptional organization and help a woman get on her feet.
