I love new beginnings of almost any sort, which is part of why I am excited about starting Month 2 of Seven: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess. This month’s area of excess is clothing.
Of course I am also giddy about having had a cup of coffee this morning, and it feels like the whole world is open to me today as I consider what I will eat. All the choices!
Pictured above are my seven items of clothing, finalized this morning. I am going skiing for spring break, so I am allowing myself to wear ski gear on the mountain, but will change back into these seven items once the ski day is over.
I am excited to see where this month’s journey takes me.
One of the items of clothing I am the most excited about is the Live Generous t-shirt from Pure Charity. The whole group of us gals will be wearing Pure Charity t-shirts this month in the hopes that our combined effort of wearing practically the same t-shirt every day will mean lots of our friends and family (and blog readers too!) will sign up for a Pure Charity account, where a portion of money that you already spend can go to charities that you choose.
You can download a plugin so that whenever you shop online, you can know that from many of those purchases a portion of the money is going to fund worthy projects of your choosing. Right now I am excited about this project to Rescue Girls in Cambodia. Check it out.
If you are already signed up for Pure Charity or if you sign up today, leave me a comment so I can follow you on their website! Also, here’s a video about how it all works.
PS I forgot to mention that both Taido (my husband) and Cole (my oldest son) are doing the clothes month along with me, which makes me smile. They might both be feeling a little left out that I forgot about getting them t-shirts. Oops. Just one more reason I should never, ever give up coffee again. Ever.
