I have been doing this regularly for a few months now. We have a little facebook community that shares their unwanted items and puts them up for others to have.
I have 3 boxes of items to give and plan to post them all this week.
I have a nice pair of shoes that is too small for my feet but has been sitting in my closet for a long time. For some reason, everytime I think about it donating it, I put it back. But the time has come. I will donate this to the Savation Army which will come to my apartment building this Saturday.

I just put together a dozen beautiful Hawaiian shirts to give to a local thrift. I have a lot more things to dig out of my closet and give away as well. I am so blessed to have the abundance I have and want to share with others in any way I can.
just cleaned out my house on spring break, donated all to church yard sale.
I just did this with my clothes not too long ago. I count it as done. :)

I planning to go through my closet this weekend and donate all the clothes I haven't worn in more than 6 months.

Today's little challenge is of great interest to me
Though months or years is the puzzle you'll soon see
For my family and I to donate is not a hard thing to do
We've always done this it's part of our life and our view
To always help others no matter their lot in life
Is the way we've been taught to ease the world of its strife
To aid those less fortunate is what we always aim to do
By donating or helping to change others point of view
As we are moving soon to our brand new home
We'll clean out our closets and take stock of our own
That which we no longer use or doesn't quit fit
Will be donated to charities where others will benefit
There's furniture also as we have already been told
New seats and a table are being given by friends gold
Although we still have a couple of months until that day
We're truly amazed at what we've stocked away
Although without meaning as greed is not our way
Now when we take stock it's more than we can say
We'll gladly part ways with these items and more we will say
Although there's memories in some we admit they've had their day
But further to this is the smiles and the faces
Of those who receive these and treat us with graces
To see the young children with new coats and new shoes
We've made the right decision in what we did choose
Coats will bring warm from the deep winter chill
They'll keep someone from getting quite ill
A couple of beds we know will help someone sleep right
It's a just a small effort in getting someone a good night
Some money and food we'll give also as we pass by
But for the grace of God, it could be us in their eye
No thanks is necessary from these brothers we see
We hope and we pray that easier their lives will be
A prayer of hope and of love we send them this day
We hope that their lot improves as they go their way
May peace, love and joy be brought to them now
May we all find a way to help them somehow
Have a truly wonderful and Blessed day my dear friends
May God help protect you with love that never ends
May His Love and His Grace keep you on your day
May His angels protect you as you go your way
Have a truly wonderful and Blessed day dear friends. I love you! :D
