We had such a great time in Indianapolis! We arrived early in the morning at our location to set-up the mobile boutique, along with the help of several volunteers from Claire’s. As per usual, they were all super helpful and knew how to arrange everything so that it looked visually appealing. In fact, everything was color-coordinated so nicely that several girls complimented how the clothes looked on the rack! Also at our stop was fashion blogger Ashley Wottring of FASHionatelyMe.com. She was super stylish, and loved helping the girls choose clothing.
Our location was the Martin Luther King Community Center. The staff there were so nice as to grill hot dogs and provide drinks and snacks to the girls who came to the event. I am in the sorority Zeta Tau Alpha, which is headquartered in Indianapolis! I reached out to ZTA to let them know that I would be in town, so Ashley Martin from their Themis magazine came out to see the truck/trailer. ZTA stands for many values which I feel Threads for Teens and myself embody. I feel extremely lucky/blessed to be a member in such an amazing fraternity that emphasizes service and sisterhood. The local Fox affiliate also came to visit and film the event. I always enjoy talking to the news because that means I can get Threads for Teens’ mission out to so many more people. I will post a link to the clip if I can find one!
Overall, 38 girls came to our stop in Indianapolis and all had such an awesome time. The girls specifically loved the shoes. Almost every single girl took a pair!! Clothing from the brand Maurice’s was also flying off the racks. They sent a shipment of twenty boxes to our Las Vegas stop and since then, we keep going through more and more boxes.
Stay tuned for CHITOWN!!!
