Ashley has just launched a new underwear mission! Head over to http://pledgebank.com/Undies-4-Liberia to sign up!

Pledge “Undies4Liberia”

"I will donate 250 new pairs of underwear to children in Liberia but only if 20 other people will donate 10 new pairs (or as many pairs as you want!)."

— Ashley, The Underwear Fairy

Deadline to sign up by: 15th February 2008
22 people signed up (2 over target)

Country: Liberia
Place: Monrovia, Montserrado (view map)

More details
I spent 34 days working at an orphanage in Monrovia, Liberia. Of the 90+ children who call BJCCV home, most children there only had 1 pair of underwear, so on wash days, they were without. The pair that they did have was usually falling apart at the seams. The impact of something as simple as a new, clean pair of underwear is amazing! This collection will go to the children at Bishop Judith Craig Children's Village in Margibi County.

NEW packages of underwear are preferred, however, I will gladly accept gently used underwear (but wash the used ones before you send them, thanks). I am in need of all sizes, but the greatest need is for underwear for teens (men's & women's sizes). However, I will take any size underwear that you're willing to give!!

This pledge has now closed; it was successful!
