Idea of the Week – December 11

Posted on: December 11, 2007

Hey Everybody,

How is your month of giving going? Did you make lots of yummy treats to sell off for a great cause? Tell me all about it!

Now for this week’s idea of giving. It comes in two parts – first, a fun part and then the giving part! First, tell your friends to find the most outrageous clothes they can find. Dig in the backs of your closets! Find those crazy clothes you haven’t worn for a long time and roll them all into an extra crazy outfit! Then, get all of your friends together and have an outrageous what NOT to wear fashion show! Strut your stuff down a makeshift runway, smile for the cameras as your friends take pictures, and then vote on who has the craziest outfit! That’s the fun part… now for the giving part! When you’re done with your fashion show, donate the clothes to a Goodwill or a shelter in your area. Add to the pile with other clothes you haven’t worn for a while that you may have found while digging around. You’ll make someone else’s day with a new outfit that they otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford.

I hope that everyone is doing well and enjoying the winter weather and the holidays!

That’s all for now,

Each week Girl Talk brings you the Idea of the Week filled with fun and creative alternatives to drinking alcohol. It may seem that all your friends are spending their time partying and you’re probably thinking your only option is to join in. But research shows: nearly 75% of girls drink alcohol “to fit in.” That means many girls are making bad (and illegal!) choices because they feel like they need to. Do you want to suffer the negative consequences that come with underage drinking? Here’s my advice: be the cool girl who finds something else to do instead – you’ll probably find that other girls around you will be thankful and relieved to have something fun and safe to do!

A Note About grltlk.org

You may have noticed that grltlk.org is now being redirected here, to our Girl Talk blog. We are currently doing a bit of maintenance on the site but it'll be back up soon! So just take note that some of the links you click here on our blog may redirect you back here instead of to grltlk.org until it is re-vamped!
