It’s time for action.
A little weeding and a charitable outlook can bring order back to your morning routine. A few do-good organizations can route your old shoes, clothes and glasses to other less fortunate (but just as fashionable) people:
• Donate practically anything to Goodwill, which provides job training to people with special needs. The stores help fund that mission. Use the ZIP code locator at www.goodwill.org to find the nearest location.
• Help a woman thrive in the mainstream work force by donating a suit or business clothing to Dress for Success. (See www.dressforsuccess.org for drop-off locations.)
• Clear up someone’s fuzzy vision by donating your glasses to New Eyes for the Needy (http://www.neweyesfortheneedy.org/).
• Let your gently worn shoes walk a mile on someone else’s feet by donating them to Share Your Soles (http://www.shareyoursoles.org/), a group that puts shoes on the feet—and joy on the faces—of thousands.
• Donate glamorous gowns (http://www.glassslipperproject.org/yostate. htm), so a financially strapped, prombound girl can feel gorgeous on her big night. And send your wedding gown to Brides Against Breast Cancer (www.bridesagainstbreastcancer.org) to make a cancer patient’s wish come true.
