Take a Pose... With Clothes
Take a Pose… With Clothes is a charity that helps support children in need of clothing, shoes, and miscellaneous items. The uniqueness of this foundation is that it was launched by an 8-year-old child who believes that every child should have at least one outfit that makes them feel so good that they would want to take a picture in it. Hence, the name, Take A Pose (TAP) with Clothes.
Natalija began her plight by making posters to collect items for orphans and homeless children. Her desire to do something for other children began with asking her mother to take her around the neighborhood to drop off flyers to collect clothing. At her 8th birthday party, Natalija requested that the guests bring a new item of clothing or shoes for a needy child in leui of a birthday gift. This theme continued throughout the holidays and soon it became a regular quest. This year it officially became a non-profit.
We hope you become a part of the team and help support a child in need. Clothing, shoes and some very necessary items can make a huge difference in a child’s life. These items are not only protective from weather and elements, but can also help provide a child with a sense of self. It aligns with Natalija’s mantra of accepting others for their differences and identifying with the character of people instead of what you see, but she wants them to see themselves with pride. Having the clothing a child needs can take the focus off of feeling inadequate, so that they can go to school, play sports, go to work… whatever the task may be. Clothing can make a difference in a positive way.
