Google Alerts are the best things since chocolate chip cookies, aren’t they? All the news you care about, straight to your inbox. Today, my “Undie Chronicles” alert brought me information on an amazing charity: Undies for Everyone. Now THIS is a charity I can get behind!
I know our beloved Undie Chronicles discuss all the wacky get-ups adults find to slap on under their clothes (most of which they should be insecure about). But Undies for Everyone was created to address underwear insecurity in children.
No child should have to worry about where their next pair of undies is coming from.
What is Undies For Everyone?
This organization was founded for American children in crisis. From their website: “Underwear insecurity is a condition endured by children in crisis who lack access to new underwear.” They further state, “Kids living in crisis don’t have access to new underwear – they venture out with hand-me-downs or nothing at all.”
“Underwear is something you take for granted until you don’t have it.” – Undies For Everyone champion, Brené BrownTweet
Undies for Everyone provides new underwear for over 100,000 U.S. children living in poverty or crisis. With newfound confidence and self-esteem, students are ready to learn and grow.
Here’s their home page video:
Donating Is Easy
There are three ways to donate to Undies for everyone if you wish to assist.
Because what organization do you know that doesn’t love the flexibility of money?
They have an Amazon Wish List set up like a registry. You click here, pick from the list, and send the undies. They take care of getting each pair where it is most needed.
They have a Shopify store with t-shirts, tote bags, and more. And y’all, they have “Undies for Everyone” t-shirts! You know I need to get me one of those.
Extra Slice of Entertainment
If you need an extra bonus round of undie entertainment, here’s the founder of Undies for Everyone, Rabbi Amy Weiss, reading “Veggies with Wedgies” by Todd H. Doodler. The book mentions an Underwear Fairy… OMG, I’ve got to set up an alert for that.
I miss the heck out of hanging out here at More Cowbell with all of you! You make up the funnest comment section ever. It’s been this and that and way too much of crappity-crap-that these last few years, but my early New Year’s resolution for 2022 is to dust off this blog and post more regularly over here. (I’m still always around at Writers In the Storm. Eleven years and counting!)
