bottomless closet

.

Every day, while I am bowing to the man, my sister, Jess is working to make the world a better place for underprivileged women. She works as the Volunteer Coordinator for a fabulous organization called Bottomless Closet. Their mission is to help disadvantaged women out of poverty and into self-sufficiency.

They run a wonderful program that begins by outfitting women with interview-appropriate attire and then follows through with professional training, financial management education and personal enrichment courses.

In short, they help women to help themselves and I couldn’t be prouder of the work that my sister is doing with this incredible group of people.

Bottomless Closet is currently in the running to potentially receive a $25,000 grant from JPMorgan Chase as part of the Chase Community Giving Program on FaceBook. $25,000 would mean the world to them and would go an awfully long way to fuel their meaningful work.

Voting for Bottomless Closet costs you nothing but a moment of your time. If you’re a FaceBook user, I’d be grateful if you would click on the following link to the Chase Community Giving Page and vote for Bottomless Closet. Just a minute or two can literally help change lives.

Thanks so much.

Love you, Jess! We’re pulling for you!

  1. Very important work. I will vote.

    I was momentarily confused but we have the same madness in my family. My aunt named two of her three daughters Phyllis. We still call one “baby Phyllis. It is a long story but I will leave it there.

    Kudos to the NYC Jess. 🙂

  2. I can’t thank everyone enough for voting! An organization as small as Bottomless Closet relies very heavily on this kind of funding so a grant like this has the potential to change a great many lives.

    Thank you as well for all of your very kind words. I truly take my inspiration from my big step-sis (to clear up the “Jess” confusion) who manages to juggle a family, a job at which she bows to the man, and work so passionately to help Autism Speaks… She often makes me wonder what I’m doing with my time 🙂

    My deepest gratitude to you for voting and helping to spread the word about Bottomless Closet!

    • so there you have the non-story .. jess’s dad married my mom and both of them had daughters named jess. but after twenty-five years together, ‘little jess’ is every bit my sister.

      and we still call each other darryl 🙂
