LENE ON ADX!
Two teenagers recycle and purchase Goodwill children clothes with the funds made and use their fashion and sewing skills to sew patches and designs onto the clothing and in the end... donate them to orphanages! Time to give back to our community!
WHO IS A D X?
A 2017 High School Graduate from Canyon Springs. An accepted student to the fashion design major at FIDM Los Angeles for Summer 2017
I put my blog together and began for searching patches on amazon to sew onto the denim jackets. I then looked up sewing tutorials to get an idea on what I can personally sew on the clothing.
My partner, Arlene and I, spoke to Miss Beaman to present our pitch and how our progress is going. She then led us to a new direction and gave us an idea on how we can approach the donations. She had suggested to ask our mentor if he knew any shelters willing to accept our clothing because Charles James worked with a plentiful in these years.
I got in touch with Charles James, who I have known since my freshman year and is the head of the Interact Club here at Canyon Springs regarding if he could be our mentor. He accepted and we informed him on what this project will consist of.
I began setting up dates with my partner on the days we will be meeting up with Charlie on the Thursdays he comes to Canyon for the Interact Club. I continued searching the patches on Amazon.
As an update, Charlie had given us a list of two shelters where they may accept our donations. I set up the instagram account @leneonadx and shared a video introduction on who me and my partner are and what our project will depict on to our followers. I also got in touch with my mentor Charlie thanking him and asking him to inform Miss Beaman he will be our mentor.
I got in contact with two shelters here in Riverside. The first one I called was in favor with our project and would accept our donations. However, upon looking at the inappropriate reviews previous guest left, Arlene and I decided to move onto the second shelter. Since no one was able to pick up, I left a voicemail and curently waiting for a callback.
We both agreed to recycle the cans on our own time next week because my work schedule and Arlene's swim schedule did not match. We will both be doing our group pitch to the panel next Thursday and inform each other how much money we raised up on our first recycle run. To end the day, we posted a video of my call to the first shelter up on our Instagram page.
