The #ygkchallenge is an ongoing series where we dare you to be different, resolve to be better, and or do something awesome in support of our beloved community. Each week, Kingstonist establishes a new, ambitious or quirky goal, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston (and the world) a slightly better place to live, work and play.
This week’s #ygkchallenge encourages you to:
Help someone dress for success! Dress for Success Kingston is part of a global movement that is dedicated to providing support, guidance, and mentorship to women in need. The organization aspires to “empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life”. Through the donation of gently-used clothing, becoming a corporate partner, and volunteering, dress for success helps give people a fresh start. Although the local chapter has just concluded one of their big annual fundraisers, keep them in mind next time you’re cleaning out your closet or considering doing something awesome for someone in need.
