What a day - work has gone *crazy* this week. Excuse me while I collapse into a heap, okay?

So I said I would post a scan of the thank you I got from the Panties for Everyone drive last year by tonight, and I fail exponentially. I did get it scanned - and then forgot my thumb drive at work. I have to take out the trash and pick my roommate up from the airport, and won't have time to get back to the building before it security locks up tight for the night. D: I will be able to get that posted tomorrow though, along with the receipts for the things I've bought so far this year. :D We're currently at $1,282.94, for the record, less the $620 or so that has been spent on hoodies, gloves, and hats so far. Woot woot! I'm making my first drop-off tomorrow, since the back of my trunk is full to bursting.


In other, much less important news: my hair has finally grown out of the slightly awkward phase it's been in since I got it cut, and looked adorable today. It seems that the best way to style it is to wake up, wash it, and go out into freezing weather, thus making my still wet hair freeze into tiny little icicles all over my head. This makes my entire body scream for the Bahamas, but seems to work absolute magic, since my hair thaws and is soft and adorably flippy and bouncy for the rest of the day. Or at least until I take my sweater off and on a few times, at which point it's soft and static-electricitied, but still adorable in that reaching-for-the-ceiling sort of way.

I woke up a good 14 hours after I initially put of the donations post, and found $587.02 $588.85 in my paypal account.

We're past the initial goal, and rolling on into the territory of bonus items like maybe jeans and bras and toothbrushes now, y'all. \o/

I can't thank all of you enough - the signal-boosting is awesome, the donations are awesome, y'all are awesome. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Hey Y'all,

So there's this meme going around, where people post their wishlists for the December Holidays. You know the one? Where people say that they want fic, or a pony, or whatever.


I'm too poor to give anyone anything this year, so I'm not really gonna play that game. Instead, here's my twist:

One of my housemates works with/at a local homeless shelter for teens. From what she's said, they run around 15-20 kids at any time, and several of them live there on a fairly permanent basis.

Here's the thing. These kids pretty much don't have anything new, and the vast majority of their clothing and belongings are donated. Sounds pretty ok, right? Yeah, if you're interested in wearing clothing that's several years out of date, or about three decades too old for you - nobody really wants to dress like they're sixty when they're sixteen. Not to mention, can you imagine wearing second hand bras and panties?


You might be aware that I've got a seasonal job at Lane Bryant. This is awesome, for a number of reasons, but the key one here is that I've asked for and been given permission to use my 40% employee discount for the plus-sized girls who live at this shelter. I'm planning on hitting up Victoria's Secret or even Macy's in our mall this week and seeing if they'll match this discount as I'd really really like to get all the girls who live at the shelter some underwear that's never been used, is in their size, and is pretty.

Instead of giving me anything this holiday, I'd love it if you could donate some money towards this cause. I'm hoping to raise enough money to be able to get each girl two pairs of panties and a bra. Five pairs of panties run $25 at LB, and each bra works out to around $20. I figure if I can get around $200, I can swing this.

Of course, if I can get more than $200, I could do something for the guys. Spokane is freezing y'all, and they're always in need of things like socks and hoodies. I'm betting that I could talk a couple of stores into letting me buy things at their employee discount rate, and it would be awfully cool if the guys weren't left out of this.


So yeah, that's my Christmas wish this year. Help me help out a bunch of kids who don't have anything, and could really use something to make their lives a little bit better.


My paypal is jessamayone@hotmail.com (or click the shiny link!), and if you have any questions, I can be reached at bunnymcfoo at gmail dot com, or through a comment on this entry.










PLEASE, feel free to link this high and low, (especially if you've got a big friendslist :D) I'm really really crossing my fingers that this works out well. If anyone wants more information about the shelter, or wants a receipt for their donation, I can provide those - just ask!


ETA: I'm heading back down to the family's for Christmas on the 23rd, and I'd love to have something to actually get to the kids FOR Christmas, so I'm thinking that the 20th or the 21st is the deadline for this. ♥
