It is so nice to see so many 'views' of this event.

There is a huge amount of amazing donations of women's clothes, bags, shoes, purses, accessories, purses, books and misc items coming in all the time. Thank you so much to those who have generously donated. Please search for 'New To You' Second Hand Charity Sale for Women on facebook for contact information and a map on how to get to the sale. We would also appreciate you posting it on your wall and inviting people to attend. We have so much stuff to sell and we really need the customers who are looking for great deals and want to help this charity.

In addition to the second hand items for sale, there will also be a lucky draw of a L'Occitane gift basket of new bath and body products.

Also, there is a group of 7 girls aged 9-12 who are volunteering at the event as greeters, change room attendants and also selling their handmade Christmas Cards and Iced Lemon Tea. The are very excited to be helping out with this fundraising project for the children at the orphanage and we are excited to have them. Kids helping kids....... what is better than that???

Thank you so much to Joe at Zhongxiao Forkers for generously donating the cups, lids and straws for the girls' Iced Tea sales.

75% of the proceeds made from this event will be used to purchase the items required by the 48 children at the orphanage. We expect they will request itmes such as soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, underwear, sanitary supplies, school supplies and non-perishable food items. The other 25% will go directly to operational costs at the orphanage. We will then buy the necessary items and load up the car for a road trip to deliver everything. We have also received a lot of 2nd hand clothing, books and school supplies which will also be taken directly there. I hope that we have way too many things for the car!! We would have to rent a blue truck!! (We'll pass on the betelnut, thanks!)

My dream right now is to have a wrapped gift for each child with their name on it. I don't think they have ever received something new and specifically for them.

If you can provide us with a way to purchase these items for a lower cost, we would really appreciate it as the money could stretch so much further. We are just a few foreign women who are trying to help out in the way we know how in our spare time. We all have full time jobs and have been consumed by the work involved in this, so your help is graciously appreciated. The positive energy that has come from this is contagious, so please do what you can to help us out!

Thank you again for your interest in this event. If this goes as well as we hope, we could make it an annual event.
Thank you!

I would like to thank Debbie Huang from 'the Bag Age'
https://www.facebook.com/pages/the-Bag- ... 9700508720
for donating the paper shopping bags we will be using at the sale. She has a great purse shop on Yongkang Street, Lane 14 and has been very generous and supportive.

Another huge thank you to all the volunteers who have stepped forward with their time. There is a great team set up for all the pricing, organizing, and arranging of items as well as on the day of the event. This is so helpful.

In case of a large amount of customers on that day, I will have to limit the amount of people inside due to safety reasons. Please be patient and understanding. We are trying out best.

There will also be a small section for men's wear as well.

Thank you so much.

Hi all,
On Sunday Nov 13, 10 lovely ladies volunteered many hours of their time to help sort, hang and organize all the donations for the 'New To You' Charity sale. What an unbelievable day! There are so many beautiful donations and they must be sold so the prices are low, low, low! Donations for the sale can not be accepted as we are completely full!

The orphanage has now been contacted and told about the fundraising event. I didn't want to tell them too early so they would get their hopes up too soon. They are very excited to hear about the help that is on the way. We asked them what they needed and they have a wish list:

Toiletries: toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, conditioner, sanitary napkins,
Children's diapers: various sizes
Linen: sheets, towels, blankets, pillow cases
Clothes: Please only quality, unstained clothes and shoes
Underwear and Undershirts: boys and girls in various sizes
School supplies: new: pencils, erasers, rulers, notebooks, colored pencils, pencil cases, backpacks
Food: Non-perishable items that have at least 6 months left on their expiry dates.

It would be really nice if people had these items on hand or could pick up a few things to put in our donations box on the day of the sale. Every little bit helps.

I can continue to collect orphanage donations until December 31, 2011. Please contact me to donate.

Also, a little bit more information about this fundraising event: Most of the money raised at the 'New To You' Sale will be used to BUY the items needed by the orphanage. The rest of the money will go to pay for their operating costs such as their monthly bills. The children are orphans, but they are still children who deserve quality things in their life to improve their self esteem So, I will spend the money on the things that they need with also a gift for each of them. I am pretty sure these children have never received a gift of a new item that has THEIR name on it! Some items will be sent down in advance so the orphanage can use them immediately and some items will be driven down so we can give it to them personally.

This event is different. 100% of all money raised will go towards the orphanage. I am donating all my expenses and time. I will personally see that they get what they need and what the money can afford to buy. If anyone can offer discounted prices on items to be bought for the orphanage, please email me at lorenap2234(at)h o t m a i l . c o m
and I will be very grateful as I need to stretch the money as far as possible.

Bring your shopping bags and see you on Sunday, November 20th from 1:00-5:00 pm!

Thank you all who participated in the 'New to You' Second Hand Charity Sale for Women. Whether you shopped, donated to the sale, donated to the orphanage, invited friends, spread the word or sent kind encouragment, you have all contributed to the success of this event. I hope you all love the treasures you bought, which are, 'New to You!"

I am pleased to announce that the sale raised 72,390 ntd (so far) for the Xinyi Orphanage in Yun Lin County, Taiwan. In addition to the money raised, we have also received about 15 large boxes of donations to go directly to the orphanage.

Would you believe that the young girls selling iced tea, raffle tickets and their homemade Christmas cards made almost 6000nt not including cash donations??!!

We are not finished collecting orphanage donations, so please contact me, lorenap2234 (at) h o t m a i l . c o m to contribute.
The orphanage has 48 children and needs:
toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, sanitary napkins, underwear, kids clothes, towels, sheets, pillowcases, blankets, food, school supplies, diapers and children's Chinese story books.

All the leftover clothes from the sale are being donated to 3 charities. One assists elderly orphans http://www.egnh.idv.bz . Another is called Taipei Women's Rescue Foundation http://www.twrf.org.tw which assists women from violent situations and the third is an organization in the Philippines which assists women rescued from human trafficking and the sex industry. http://www.safehousemovement.com .
The books will be donated to Grandma Nittis which sells them and donates the money to animal welfare organizations in Taiwan.

A great big THANK YOU to all the lovely people involved.
