The 12.26 Project: 2013

This is the THIRD annual project to help feed and clothe those less fortunate for the holidays!

– Please help us make this another success-story!

Statistics show that between the Thanksgiving and New Year holidays, that we are more generous givers and in overall better moods. We give to the Salvation Army person ringing the bell outside of the grocery store, help one another in troubled situations like a broken down car, and tip just a little bit more than we normally would for a service. After all, it’s the Holidays!

Last year Clean.Lean.Sharp started a movement that put the “Holiday Spirits” into a constructive effort – and we called it: The 12.26 Project. We organized a clothing and food drive that was personally delivered to people less fortunate…living without homes, shelter or any idea where their next meal may come from. The effort was a SUCCESS!

We ran the project back again last year...and again, had an INCREDIBLE turn out in giving from everyone!

AND WE’RE BACK AT IT AGAIN!!!

Let’s make 2013 the best yet!! We will be collecting Primarily:

Food

Think: hot plate, ready to eat…while you’re preparing your Thanksgiving & Christmas meals, make 1 extra dish for The 12.26 Project effort – or take an extra plate of leftovers!! Don’t worry about packaging, we will organize all donations and prepare “to-go” type plates with variety on every plate!

 

Clothing

The 12.21 Project: Thanksgiving 2012 (clothes)

It’s getting cold! Big needs will be: coats, winter wear, socks, hats, gloves, blankets & pillows.

Books

The 12.21 Project: Thanksgiving 2012 (books)This is something new. I think we often have this caricature of the less fortunate as being ignorant or lazy or simply satisfied with their predicament – instead I think we should encourage and engage them for a better path, that they would also prefer! Donate whatever types of books you would like!

 

First Donation Deadline will be the week after Thanksgiving (November 30, 2013 – December 7, 2013). Please SHARE this to as many people in the Metro Atlanta are that you can (if outside the Metro Atlanta area, I encourage you to run a similar project!).

 

Please help in participating in this movement and spreading the word in your social network (twitter/facebook/Google+/etc), your church, your work, your gym, your school, your friends & family, etc.
