Giving Back to the Community
Posted on November 14 2014
As a part of the resale aspect of my business, I frequently make trips to the Genesis House of Pittsburgh to donate maternity and nursing clothes, baby gear, and more on behalf of my clients. Giving back to the community that I live in is extremely important to me.
Today I made my third trip of the year and I’m proud to announce we had about $1200 in donations, from 8 people including:
– a stroller
– a carseat
– baby bedding
– maternity & nursing clothes
– a diaper bag
– blankets, bibs and so much more …
Thank you to everyone who made a donation – I’ll be mailing your tax receipts soon.
If you live in the Pittsburgh area and you have maternity and nursing clothes to donate or baby gear that could benefit others, please check out this organization. All the way below I’ll be listing items they take.
Now I’m off to prepare for tomorrow’s photoshoots, a nursing appointment I have on Sunday, and my next big project which I’m announcing on November 24 – which happens to be the 1 year anniversary of my business. You should get excited. The news is BIG (and even more exciting and better than the potential news that I could be pregnant). Stay tuned!
And have a good weekend y’all,
