Pepsi Refresh Project – Kira’s Kloset

20 Nov

…whatever you did for one the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40


Start a kids’ clothing closet in memory of my daughter- Kira’s Kloset

 

 

  • To collect gently used children’s clothing.
  • To make used children’s clothing available to those in need.

Kira’s Kloset is a memorial to Kira Wraspir to benefit area children.  Kira’s Kloset volunteers will collect new and gently used children’s clothing, wash and sort it, and redistribute the clothing to area children in need.  Kira’s Kloset is planning to work with area schools to promote clothing drives and install collection bins for each school; and connecting with area families in need.  The clothing would be transported to a distribution site on a designated day and organized and displayed on hanging racks. This is an outreach of St. Luke Lutheran Church.

Cash donations can be mailed to:

St. Luke Lutheran Church PO Box 28948 Spokane, WA 99228 Attn: Debbie Wraspir

Make checks payable to: St. Luke Lutheran Church and notate Kira’s Kloset on the memo line.

This promotes the concepts of giving to help others, and that kids can make a difference; concepts that Kira herself embraced.  Kira was a Girl Scout, she volunteered at the local food bank, and donated her hair to Locks of Love twice.

If successful, Kira’s Kloset will be an ongoing project.  At this time support is needed to get started.


Pepsi is giving away millions each month to fund refreshing ideas that change the world. The ideas with the most votes will receive grants.  Your vote will help great ideas become reality.

How will the 5K be Used?

Budget Notes: If Kira’s Kloset is successful, we’d like to purchase a trailer to transport the clothing to distribution sites in the future.
$ 1,000 plastic storage tubs
$ 1,000 portable hanging racks and hangers
$ 500 publicity
$ 2,000 purchase neede items not donated (i.e. underwear, socks, etc.)
$ 500 shelving for storage

 

 

I am posting this today for it has touched my heart. It was brought to my attention by a good friend of mine. My prayers go out to Kira’s Kloset.

Love my Jeans

27 Oct

Jeans are like mirrors, making caricatures of our most hated flaws.

Wear boot cuts to draw the eye away from mommy hips and thighs. Forget the number on the tag and go for what fits. It is always better to wear a size that compliments your figure rather than your much desired size. Besides most jean companies vary in sizing. The trick is to be honest with your body, stand in front of a full length mirror and look and look. This may be a great time to invite a friend over to tell you the truth.

If you are “A” (Apple) shape – Gap & Lucky Jeans are great

“V” (Pear) shape Earl Jeans

“H” (Hourglass) shape – Lee or Mavi

Pear (V) shaped people would have broader bottoms compared to the top, hourglass (H) is the perfect one where the top and bottom are in perfect sync with slim waist line and apple (A) shaped people would be heavy at the waist.

Colossians 3:12-17  in the Message states: “So chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. And regardless of what you put on, wear love. It is your basic, all purpose garment. Never be without it!

Wednesday

Great little day that Wednesday was. Attended my oldest son’s Open House at his Elementary school. His Father came with his new wife and surprisingly it was not uncomfortable this time. Which is fabulous because my son was so happy that we were all there!  Afterwords Malachi & I had a date at Ben & Jerry’s.  Just the 2 of us, we had sooooo much fun.  I am so glad that I got the opportunity to spend some one on one time with him.

Black Sweater, Brittany's Dress, Levi Jeans & Cute lil Starppy Sandals from the Goodwill

Thursday

Thursday I took my Lily to Preschool Park and had a blast! Preschool park is an indoor fun place for children 0-5 in our church’s gym each Thursday morning.. Several Mommies come for fellowship & coffee and Children come to play with all sorts of toys. Click here to view pictures of Lily exploring, watching and playing.

Nike Sweatshirt from Fred Meyers, White Tee from Target, & Plaid Pants from Walmart

Friday

Friday I stayed busy around the house and caught up on some writings. Including my latest on 24/7 Moms More Than a Name

Long Maroon & Cream Sweater from the Goodwill & Levi Jeans

Saturday

Saturday I hung out with Malachi and took him grocery shopping while Chad, Lily & Mason went to go pick up Brittany & Collin at their Moms.  That afternoon I started roasting my very first chicken (click here to see this on Facebook) and then we headed over to the park for some fun in the sun, that actually graced us with its presence that day. ( I actually got to change into a short sleeve shirt!)

L/S Striped Shirt that I got somewhere, Blue Jean Skirt from the Goodwill & Leggies from Target

Sunday

Busy day with Church, lunch and then off to the airport to pick up my Mom!  After I picked her up she took me out to eat. What a wonderful time we had, I missed her. She was in Illinois visiting my Grandma.

Black Top from The Bon Marche (before it was Macy's) Pink skirt that I purchased many many years ago, & black capri leggings from Target

I am including Brittany in today’s what I wore because she is wearing my dress! We had a great girls night Saturday night filled with laughter, fun, & our tradition of a foot soak and chat in the tub.  We started watching The Princess and the Frog until we were distracted with playing dress up. She found a love for my dresses, I let her put on my wedding dress!  She even helped me put together the outfit I wore this Sunday.

My Black Dress I purchased at Salvation Army

Monday

I was exhausted ( the Giggle of the Day was perfect for today & how I felt) .. so I took a pajama day! Since I am keeping it real I thought I would even share 🙂

Tobmac sweatshirt from his concert at OCC, black shirt and favorite green pajama bottoms

Tuesday

I spent most of the day taking care of my sweet Lily who has a runny nose and cough. I missed TLC (which is a bummer I actually did my homework and I wrote a prayer that this bible study inspired me to ) this morning but I did get out of the house after school and took the boys to the YMCA. While they were busy with there Sports mix activity I grabbed a cup of coffee and read my new Jill Savage book, Creating the Moms Group You’ve Been Looking For. I spoke with Patti from the church this morning and I will be meeting with her this weekend to put together my Mom’s Life Group. I am so very excited to be putting this together. So I  kept busy with planning this new adventure God is taking me on.
After the Y we came home for dinner with my Mom and Brother. What a great evening full of laughter it was!

Black Sweater, Grey Shirt and Black Pants (Comfy for Snuggling on the couch)

So there it is .. what I wore! What did ya think? Did I do okay? I took a picture everyday. I think about it each morning as I carefully select my clothes. I feel like I did in high school making sure I wear the right thing..lol. I hope you are having as much fun as I am!

Blessings & Giggles until next time!

Time out for Mom

28 Sep

Your giving should be done in secret. Your Father can see what is done in secret, and he will reward you.    (Matthew 6:4, New Century Version)


Read Matthew 6 on Bible Gateway

25 “So I tell you, don’t worry about the food or drink you need to live, or about the clothes you need for your body. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothes. 26 Look at the birds in the air. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them. And you know that you are worth much more than the birds. 27 You cannot add any time to your life by worrying about it.

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? Look at how the lilies in the field grow. They don’t work or make clothes for themselves. 29 But I tell you that even Solomon with his riches was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers.30 God clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today but tomorrow is thrown into the fire. So you can be even more sure that God will clothe you. Don’t have so little faith!31 Don’t worry and say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’32 The people who don’t know God keep trying to get these things, and your Father in heaven knows you need them. 33 Seek first God’s kingdom and what God wants. Then all your other needs will be met as well. 34 So don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will have its own worries. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (Matthew 6:25-34, New Century Version)

  • Is it okay for Christian women to be concerned about being in style?
  • How much time do you spend worrying about your clothing?
  • What does it mean to seek God’s kingdom first even when it comes to fashion?

When evaluating your wardrobe & the look you want why not embrace a scripture verse. Lets build our lives & our look on a particular truth from God’s word. I can imagine this would have a lasting impact on how we see ourselves & how others see & describe us.

More on Matthew 6:

Integrity

He is More than Enough

The One Who had it All
