LET'S GET UNDIES FOR EVERYONE!

This AMAZON LINK will allow you to purchase BRAND NEW undies to be delivered directly to Undies for Everyone.

Undies donations are often overlooked, but these little layers can lead to greatness and give every kid a chance at success. Who knows—whether through the simple act of giving or receiving new undies—one pair, somewhere, may be just the change a person needs. As Undies for Everyone champion Brené Brown said, “Underwear is something you take for granted until you don’t have it.”
WHAT IS UNDIES FOR EVERYONE?
It started as a single blog post ten years ago.
Underwear is a basic need most of us take for granted—and it’s one of the most overlooked items donated to kids who aren’t so lucky. When a social worker pointed this out to Rabbi Amy Weiss, she was inspired to write a blog in the “Houston Chronicle” calling for help. Rabbi Amy was blown away by the enthusiastic response from readers, whose small, informal donations and collections quickly snowballed from her living room in Houston into a registered nonprofit, Undies for Everyone.
VIRTUAL AUTHOR VISIT
WUES students will have a virtual author visit
