This is a glorious Christmas sweater. Notice the rocking horse which makes it kid friendly. The designer also had the foresight to include a “NOEL” on the sweater lest you jump to conclusions and think this was an ordinary red sweater. (Best caption in the comments section wins some sort of prize).
QUESTION: What’s better than wearing Absolutely Fabulous Christmas sweaters for the entire month of December?
ANSWER: Wearing Absolutely Fabulous Christmas sweaters for the entire month of December AND raising awareness and money for a community driven non-profit.
ANNOUNCEMENT: It was recently recommended to me by Grace Rodriguez of AYN Brand (http://aynbrand.com, @gracerodriguez) that I utilize the Christmas sweater project to raise awareness and donations for a local non-profit. Last weekend at the Coffee Groundz meetup I was fortunate enough to meet Terry Seufert (http://goodwillhouston.org, @houstongoodwill) of Houston Goodwill Industries. Thanks to the advice from Grace and the brokering from Terry, I’ve partnered with Goodwill Industries of Houston for the remainder of the month to highlight their services and contribution to the Houston community. Goodwill’s thrusts include programs that empower people to develop a sense of self-worth and independence, resulting in quality placements in community employment and greater personal success. This is a cause and a theme running through the community educational programs that Ned and I are attempting at Caroline so it is only fitting to help raise awareness for a group contributing to the Houston community in so many important ways.
Goodwill has been kind enough to donate sweaters for the rest of the month and each day’s sweater will include a focus on one aspect which demonstrates Goodwill’s importance to the community by providing jobs, training and education. Please join me in thanking Goodwill for their contribution of sweaters and aid to the greater community. It is our hope that wearing Christmas sweaters will lead to something greater than just amusement, hopefully some donations to Goodwill in the form of financial contributions, clothing or increased volunteerism.
