Closet Strike (Uniforms)

DAY 61 & The Uniform Collection Begins

For the last 61 days I (Terence) have only worn one outfit… Why? Because I decided to give up my entire closet so our organization @lovebeyondwalls can adopt four Title 1 Schools who have students who struggle with a lack of resources in their closets.

Have you ever felt embarrassed? You know what I mean… Maybe you tripped on a small object in front of a crowd, told a corny joke that no one laughed at, or did something that made you a public example. Whatever it was, you felt embarrassed, and nothing can really describe that butterfly feeling of embarrassment. This is what many children face every single day...


This is not a stunt, or some type of gimmick… I’m doing this because I encountered tons of kids who wear the same thing every single day because their families live in poverty. Therefore, I vowed to myself that not only will I walk in the shoes of these kids and raise awareness, but I would do something that benefit the schools that have students who struggle with this issue. 

Our organization is dreaming of creating closets for students who often times lacked closets in their own homes (right in theri school). Why? So they can have access to clean clothes! We wish to empower schools with the necessary resources for those students. 



How can you get involved? Simple. You can drop off at our headuarters [LBW 3270 East Main Street, College Park, GA, 30337], or you can give monetarily — 100% of your giving goes directly to uniforms. On average each uniform costs about $15. Our goals is to furnish each of these schools with 50 uniforms a piece to get them going this year!
