We had our first giveaway this past weekend!! What a great feeling it was to see so many smiling faces, not only because of the generous donations from so many, but people were happy to come together, to hug one another and share their stories of rebuilding from the flood that devastated Baton Rouge last month. Parents were able to pause while their kids played. There was laughter and genuine joy in the studio!
Dancers (and a few gymnasts too!) were able to get fitted with new dancewear and shoes and kids and moms were able to leave with a bag filled with boutique clothing from Matilda Jane. I left the event energized and ready to do more, but I need your help!
There’s still time for you to make a donation! We will have a second round of donations in a few weeks!
