Note in the Pocket
Hello Fellow Poshers and Visitors,
This week, I decided to post about an organization that does great work in their community by helping children in need attain the clothing they need.
My charity of choice is "Note in the Pocket" (noteinthepocket.org). This organization offers gently used and sometimes new clothing to children in need with a note offering encouragement and love.
Note in the Pocket started after a newly graduated teacher, working in an impoverished school, noticed that not only were some of her students hungry, their clothing was so worn, that it impacted their academic achievements and most likely, their self esteem.
This teacher rallied her community to donate and raise funds to purchase coats for the children. Shortly after sending the coats home with the children, the parents sent the coats back stating that they could not afford them, not believing that anyone would simply give them the coats. The teacher then decided to write a note and put it in the pocket of the coats with a message of love, letting the children know that this was for them and theirs to keep.
