It's a small thing to bring awareness to something in the day and age of social media. But what could we do to financially support something important? Last year, I did a purge in December and was able to make over $175. So I'm upping the ante this year, and hoping some friends will join me! Plus, we live in America, where stuff is plentiful. I know I have more than I need, and so do my children. And I want them to be able to realize the value of their things as well. It's an important lesson for all of us, and good use of the funds before Christmas - when we'll get more stuff anyway!
Plus, having an emergency fund is something I'm passionate about. Not having to go into debt when an emergency happens makes it simply a health crisis, not a financial crisis as well. So I definitely want Beauty for Ashes to have the ability to care for these girls well!
