Ugly Christmas Sweaters For A Cause

Through this year I've kept my eyes peeled for really ugly Christmas sweaters.  I also got a few given to me by people who know my cause.  Click HERE to check out my ugly Christmas sweaters from last year.

Every Tuesday I donate a few hours at a "Free" Thrift Store.  They give away everything at no cost, to people who can't afford to pay at this point in their lives.
They give away children and adult clothing.  Household items, hygiene items, towels, bedding.  They give away many coats, mittens and gloves this time of year.

Many of the items are donated by individuals, churches or organizations.  But I can't tell you how sad it is when someone needs gloves or socks desperately and there isn't any in the store.  The proprietor and all of her little minions frequently reach into their own pockets to buy necessities. 

December is just one of those times in the year when so many people need so many things, and money is tight for all of us.  That is where the ugly Christmas Sweaters enter the picture.  I donate all of my profit from the sweaters to this organization.  It is fun for me to "enhance" the Christmas sweaters, and then I get a second rush when they sell and I can donate money to a cause I love.
