Let's Talk About Socks & A Giveaway

As of September, we were 12% of the way to our goal of 306 pairs of socks for people in need in Rochester, NY. I am thrilled to announce that a recent cash donation and very generous sock donation have put us at 89 pairs of socks. We're at 29% now! Many thanks to Laura, who mailed in 49 pairs!

Are you able to help?

To donate, please mail new socks or a check (made out to Matthew's Closet) to

Liana's Mom
207 Elmcroft Rd.
Rochester, NY 14609

If you include a SASE, a tax receipt will be mailed back to you. If you send a check, please write "socks" in the memo line, or even specify men's, women's, or children's if you prefer more control over how your money is spent. ($2.50 will count as a pair of socks.)

The Giveaway

It's pretty simple. If you donate $5 or more OR 2 pairs or more of socks, you will be entered to win a 60 watt CFL from SpringLight. To enter, leave a comment with the state from which your donation was shipped along with the date of shipment, so we know who you are. :-) [I put comments for the donations received so far, so if you donated already, don't worry about entering.]

There is no predetermined close date for this giveaway. I will close the giveaway when the goal is met. If we do not meet the goal by the end of 2011, I get to keep the prize! :-)

SpringLight is not sponsoring or associated with this blog, giveaway, or Matthew's Closet in any way. The winner will receive the prize directly from me.
