Amazing. Just amazing.
I personally want to thank those who came to our latest Nashville swap. As you may have heard (or read), we had our largest attendance ever in Nashville with 60 attendees. Many people came in not knowing what to expect with the swap concept. Admittedly, swaps are really a hipster thing. They started in cities like NYC, Chicago, and SF and have spread throughout the country. I'm glad that so many were able to show how it worked and how it can benefit a whole community in different ways.
Unfortunately, I couldn't be there for the event. I had a major family medical emergency out of town, so my husband (and Sassy Family board member) Jason had to run the show. With the help of an invaluable volunteer, Colleen, the event ended up being a smash, impressing everyone, including the owner of the donated Main Street Gallery.
We had families from all over the Nashville area, including families that had been struggling to clothe their children. It's our mission and purpose to help all families, especially struggling families, and to be able to do that is awesome.
I have to give a special shout out to our volunteer, Colleen. She not only helped us at the event, but she worked hard on publicizing the event to the greater Nashville community. The biggest reason we had the attendance that we did was because of her efforts. You'll be hearing more about her here at Sassy Family very soon!
On another subject, below is all the donations given just to this swap. It was so much, we had to rent a storage facility to store it all. We have plans for all these items in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
