ThreadED had two great events during April and May. In one week, the organization sold enough donated goodies to fund six scholarships this summer.
Thanks to everyone who:
~ Donated clothing
~ Gave time
~ Offered ideas
~Told their friends...
~ And shopped!
Special thanks to our lead volunteer Mindy S. as well as Margaret W., Martha S., Jo D., Maggie N., Tricia B., Jen F. and Sharon D.
We were delighted to use space donated by Mark Development for the three day pop up in Newtonville. ThreadED is already planning a fall pop up sale for the end of September, so stay tuned for details. Best way to be in the know?

ThreadED is thrilled to be part of eBay's inaugural Shine Awards contest!
ThreadED has been chosen as one of three finalists for eBay’s Shine Award for Small Businesses in the Charitable Business category. Out of 1300 total applicants, ThreadED is very excited to be one of 15 finalists! The finalists will all be profiled on eBay’s website and the winner will be determined by online voting from June 20th to July 11th.
Then we head to Las Vegas to learn if ThreadED is chosen as a winner! Should ThreadED be determined the winner in the Charitable business category, we will receive $5,000 as well as marketing and outreach support for the next year.
Please help ThreadED by voting early and often during that time period. We will send you the voting links, as well as post them to our website and Facebook page. In the meantime, check out the finalists at http://for-business.ebay.com/tags/ebay-shine-awards
Taking Care of Business...
Meet Alex, ThreadED's new website guru! Alex is a rising sophomore at Connecticut College, where he studies Computer Science. Alex has been essential to the revamping of ThreadED's website, which will include an entirely new design and even an online store! The new and improved website is still under construction, but will be up and running very soon. We're very excited to see the final product!
Just for Kids...
ThreadED is going on the road with clothing for its smallest customers! We are trying out a children's sale in Belmont. We're excited to launch this new part of ThreadED! If you (or anyone you know) has a venue appropriate for a children's sale, please let us know- and if you have any children's clothing that you'd like to donate, we'd be happy to accept any and all donations!
