I recently became involved with Dress for Success Atlanta.  I wanted to find an organization that I could really help.  My other volunteer efforts have mostly been as a fundraiser.  Fundraising is a noble job but you don’t have much interaction with the folks that you are actually helping.

I was excited to be trained as an image consultant, which basically means that I meet our clients and pull clothing appropriate for their job interview.  When I showed up for my first day I was able to dress three clients! It was a lot of fun and made me feel like I actually made a difference.  There is really something special that happens when a women feels like she looks good.  I love to see the twinkle in our clients’ eyes when they feel ready for their job interview.  It’s truly special!

While volunteering,  I noticed that we didn’t have a lot of appropriate plus size clothing in our warehouse.  My volunteer coordinator informed me that the organization doesn’t really get a lot of plus size clothing donations.  So I decided that I would host a clothing drive specifically for Plus Size Clothing!  I am a proud, curvy, size 12 woman and know that there are a lot of great companies that cater to our body type.  So, I am asking all of my plus size divas (size 12 and up) to go through your closet this weekend and drop off what you find at one of my business locations.  You may have items that you can no longer wear or have never worn.  I found stuff with tags still on it when I went through my closet! Your donation is tax deductible and will go to a truly worthy cause!
