According to the U.S. Census Bureau, almost 20% of Californian children were living under the federal poverty level in 2009. The families of these children often face financial obstacles when it comes to meeting the necessity of keeping their youngsters properly clothed. Loved Twice, in partnership with 40 community and nonprofit organizations in the Bay Area, collects gently used infant clothing from area families and distributes them to newborns in need in order to help keep children warm and clothed for their first year of life.
Loved Twice's community volunteers seek out recyclable infant attire and assemble separate wardrobe sets for boys and girls, which licensed social workers then distribute to low-income mothers. Each wardrobe-in-a-box contains 75 clothing and accessory items in sizes 0–12 months, including newborn onesies, sleepers, hats, booties, books, a warm blanket and a First 5 California new-parent-education kit. In 2010, Loved Twice recycled enough items to clothe 1,050 newborns, thus keeping babies warm while easing new parents' financial burden.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help procure recycled clothing for newborn children. If G-Team members raise $340, Loved Twice can give four newborns a wardrobe-in-a-box with 75 necessary items. Each additional $10 raised will go toward a wardrobe-in-a-box for one child.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
