Tracy Aldea and the doggy socks

 Sweet sweet Tracy L Aldea posted the following note on her facebook page after she put out the call for socks to help BWB Detroit.
I had not see Ms. Tracy in maybe two decades but facebook was a tool in making our worlds collide and she used her networks to help our project by collecting the following supplies!!


I’ve received 400+ pairs of socks (Thank you Marie Skladd for the donation of doggie decorated socks) and delivered all to Danielle Doxie Kaltz of Burners Without Borders who does a tremendous amount of outreach with the homeless. She stated “Socks are so desperately needed and RARELY donated!”
I’m still looking to collect any of the other listed items as I have started a “FILL IT FOR THEM” bin. Please consider cleaning out a cupboard or closet for me and I’ll come pick up these much needed items.


Tracy then with her son brought all the socks to my home on the morning we packed 544 backpacks.. this donation made a difference!

This is the power of asking people we know to help out. We are all interconnected and there are many ways we can help make this world a better place.. even one pair of socks at a time.

Thank you to Marie Skladd and Ms Tracy for their amazing generosity.
