"Is there something you're symbolically releasing when you donate your clothes or personal items to a charitable organization? As you place the item in the collection box, think about what you are releasing and what you are affirming with that action. Make it significant to your mind.
"A woman donated a hat that was too small for her head. She affirmed that she was releasing ideas that limited her intellectual and spiritual growth. A friend pinned a note on her deceased mother's coat before she donated it, wishing the new owner warmth and love, and signed it with her mother's name."
