We Make A Difference!

We Make A Difference!

We strive to Make A Difference in the world every day through our clothing lines.  I was recently featured on Making A Difference, an afternoon radio segment hosted by Suzanne and Shadow at Z88.3 in Orlando, Florida. It served as a good learning experience for Aly Lewis, who has been working with Treasure Box Kids as the public relations liaison intern for Treasure Box Kids. Making a Difference is a short afternoon segment that airs every Tuesday at 4:55 P.M. The segment features local business people or volunteers that are truly making a difference in the community and in the world. It was an honor to be featured in one of the segments this past month.

Sharing How We Make A Difference

Being able to share what my company does to Make A Difference on this segment  was a unique experience. It was a fun and exciting thing to be able to share my experience as well as my passion for helping people with my fellow listeners of Z88.3. As heard in the interview, I touched on the efforts that Treasure Box Kids as a company is making in the local community and the great strides that we have made in Kenya to help women who are in need.

The process was so much fun and went by smoothly! Aly and I arrived at the studio at 1:00 P.M. We were warmly greeted by different staff members, all as friendly as the last. The reception room was very comfortable and pleasant. When Suzanne and Shadow were ready for us, we followed them back into one of their recording studios. They showed a great passion for the good of the community and also showed genuine interest in the things I was saying. It was heartwarming to see the kind of a family setting I’ve imagined while listening to their radio station.

Make A Difference With Z88.3

I have been a regular listener of Z88.3 for a few years now. I spend a great deal of time driving in high-stress traffic situations on my commute in the mornings and evenings. This radio station helps make the commute less stressful, through their music that is very calming, uplifting, and inspirational. The hosts remind me with their encouraging words that I am not alone on this journey of life.

It was a blessing to have been a part of the Z88.3 family during my interview experience. I can’t thank Suzanne and Shadow enough for giving me the opportunity to share my ability to Make A Difference on this afternoon segment!

Clothing Swap

Hold a clothing swap for all of that clothing your child doesn’t wear or never could fit into. Hosting a clothing swap has become a fun trend in the current economy as many of us do our best to stretch household budgets. A swap party is a chance to get several parents together, get rid of old clothes, pick up new clothes and never have to spend a dime.

  • Set a date and time for friends and family to come over for the clothes swap. You will want to explain to them that they should go through the outgrown clothes of their children and wash them and fold them neatly. (You do not want stained and messy clothes thrown into piles.) Ask them to bring these items with them to your home.
  • Make simple signs with construction paper and markers or printed off the computer that say the sizes that should be at the swap party. You can have blank paper in case someone brings sizes you were not anticipating. Simply write “12 months girls” or just “12 months.” The more people you have the, more descriptive you may want to make your signs. Place them in different locations in the room so that when guests arrive they can begin to sort out their clothing into appropriated size piles.
  • Have snacks and drinks available to guests to eat while they “shop.” This event works best if it is child free. That way, they are not rummaging through the piles and messing them up. If guests must bring children you may arrange for a video in a different room or an older teenager to come and entertain them while your guests work through piles.
  • As guests finish refilling their boxes and bags that they brought their children’s outgrown clothes to the party in with new clothes to take home, you can box up unclaimed clothing that no one wanted to take home (if there are any) and make arrangements to donate them to shelters or other organizations.
