Total underwear collected is 560,961.
It’s been another really busy month for the volunteers who open, sort, count and bag the underwear given the pantastic response we’ve had for our appeal for NEW pants for ladies (size 8-16) and boys (ages 3-15). We’ve also had 2 underwear pick ups, 14,175 pairs of pants and bras picked up by Freedom from Fistula Foundation, this underwear will be making it’s way to the women and children in Sierra Leone and thanks to Sally Rae for thinking of Smalls yet again when planning her trip to Malawi next month with children from George Watson’s school in Edinburgh. As well as other supplies they will be taking 600 pairs of pants and bras in their suitcases to deliver to women and children they will be visiting during their trip. This takes our total distributed to 414,721! Thanks to everyone involved for making this happen.
I had a lovely surprise in the mail this week thanks to all the people who have nominated Smalls as their charity of choice with Easyfundraising, we received a cheque for £351.76! It’s a great way to support our work when shopping online without spending an extra penny. And talking about shopping online, thanks to everyone who has visited our Facebook shop and ordered some Smalls merchandise, I was a little worried talking about Christmas cards in September but clearly there are a lot of people better organised than I am when it comes to Christmas!
