Frugal Fashionista Clothing Swap™ Blog











The Frugal Fashionista Clothing Swap is taking on a new endeavor by partnering with All Media Linked, Inc. to support our local veteran community through this awesome veterans outreach program! Being a veteran myself, I am proud to work with All Media Linked on this project, working for my brothers and sisters in arms. We will still hold our monthly swaps that benefit domestic violence shelters and RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network). The We Heart Vets program will be in addition to our regular clothing swaps!

We Heart Vets is an immense demonstration of Love, Celebrating Veterans the last Saturday in each month w/ Feast, Festival & Opportunities! Help us continue an elaborate show of support to Veterans with your contribution of revenue, gifts, opportunities, goods & services.

We Heart Vets is an outreach program that provides support, educational services, and career services to Veterans and their familie

s. For the majority of the veteran population, the effect of active military service can be profound and long-lasting. So much so, many veterans have found it difficult to adjust to “normal life” again. There are veterans whose resources have become inadequate and insufficient to simply meet basic needs. There are also others who are abandoned and unrecognized by their family members and those who can receive life changing benefits from training, certification & career resources. Not to mention the benefits of encouragement, motivation & optimism!

It is in these cases that a hand from organizations, community groups, personalities and individuals will cause our service men and women to thrive. The veterans need and deserve all the support they can garner. After all, they 
have contributed much to the establishment of a safe, stable USA. 

The We Heart Vets program and event partners provide the following resources for veterans and their families: 

• Workforce development training 
• Referrals to organizations that provide services 
• Employment opportunities 
• Goods, Services, Product & Entertainment to enhance the monthly events.

We Heart Vets is a program created by Global Community Enrichment Foundation, Inc., and its media partner, All Media Linked, Inc., a multimedia, event/direct Marketing Network, and Communications vehicle which provides brand declaration, strategic planning, trending and development for your business, organization, brand, product and/or service.Image

The Frugal Fashionista Clothing Swap has been working hard and making changes to better serve the community!

I have been securing sponsorship from businesses and collecting donations for raffle prizes and for items to add to our swag bags!

We have had so many generous people come forth to help us make this the best swap in the DC area, hands down!

We are up to about 1,450 members in our group and have been holding near monthly clothing swaps to support local domestic violence shelters and to raise money for RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network). Our next two swaps are this Sunday at the Franconia Governmental Center in Alexandria, VA and on April 26th at the West Springfield High School in Springfield, VA.

We have been supporting domestic violence programs for 5 years and are in the process of adding military families to our swap beneficiaries!

I am in the middle of working out an additional monthly swap for the military community in the DMV area! Working hand in hand with “All Media Linked” to bring the swaps to the military families!  All Media Linked hosts monthly “We Heart Vets” events where veterans can take advanage of free workshops for job seeking, computer training and certifications, mortgage and finance classes as well as customer service training and certification! They have asked me to join them and introduce the swap world to the military community! I am extremely excited to be working for both domestic violence AND the military as both are near and dear to my heart!

Visit All Media Linked at http://www.allmedialinked.com to learn more about what they do for the community!

We have been raising money for RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) by charging a $5.00 entrance fee to the swaps and by holding 50/50 raffles as well as raffling off great prizes that have been donated to our group! Entrance fee is $5.00 in advance (paid through Paypal) or $7 cash at the door on the day of the swaps. We also raise money for RAINN by selling vendor tables when we have events at the West Springfield High School! If you are interested in becoming a vendor at any of our events, please contact me at kim@ffclothingswap.com for more information!

We now have a DJ at our events! Come prepared to dance! Kat, from “the express DJ’s” has been donating her time and talents to all of our swaps and really bringing them to life! If you are looking to hire a DJ in the DMV area, check her out -she’s amazing!
