Welcome to HerExchange. Today is May 24, 2013.
Clean Up & Give Back is a new & gently-used clothing sale for women & men of all ages/sizes. ROCK BOTTOM prices on name brand fashions, including CELEBRITY donations!
(Yep, many of the celebrities you’ve enjoyed reading about on HerExchange have donated their own clothes to be sold at Clean Up & Give Back!)
WANT MORE?? How about a 7-night stay at one of 3 incredible ELITE ISLAND RESORTS properties?? Just one of our incredible silent auction items!
Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing Brittany Bergquist, co-founder of Cell Phones for Soldiers. In 2004, when Brittany was just 13 years old, she heard a newscast about a family, whose son was deployed to Iraq, that received an $8,000 phone bill for their son’s calls home. Seeing an injustice, Brittany was compelled to action and alongside her 12 year old brother, they began collecting used cell phones to donate back to cellular phone companies for money to pay off this families phone bill. Not only did they pay off their phone bill, but 7 years later, Cell Phones for Soldiers has raised over $8 million and donated over 114,ooo,ooo minutes (yes, 114 million minutes!) of talk time for soldiers to stay connected to their loved ones while deployed! Today, Cell Phones for Soldiers is dedicated to raising funds, through donation of used cell phones and monetary donations, to buy pre-paid phone cards to send to soldiers – no one should be without the connection of their loved ones while defending our freedom.
Speaking with Brittany was the catalyst to get-in-gear and give back; Clean Up & Give Back was born!
