What This California Teen Is Doing for Underprivileged Girls Will Blow You Away.
Jesus told his disciples that if someone were to ask for coat, they should offer also their shirt – to literally go the extra mile. We think of doing this sometimes, clean out a closet and take a box to the local thrift store to make a donation. But Allyson Ahlstrom of Sebastapol, California is doing something more. After reading a book on service projects, at just 14-years-old, Allyson began a project to empower underprivileged girls with confidence, poise and belonging. How? With fashion, of course! See how Threads for Teens started, and their national mission to get brand new apparel to clothing racks at zero cost to the young ladies who need it most.
