Gifts of the Heart Exchange (GOTHE)

The MBASA (MBA Spouse Association) has invited LP to participate in the Gifts of the Heart Exchange (GOTHE). For those of you who don't know, the Gifts of the Heart Exchange is like a free garage sale--only with nicer things. You come and take home what you need. Pretty simple! It happens twice a semester and is a great resource for FREE clothes and baby/toddler gear and toys when money is so tight. We are looking for volunteers to help sort clothes, watch kids in the nursery and prepare the church building for this event. Please look over the volunteer request and spreadsheet and sign up (you or your husband) when you can. I will be in the nursery Friday morning from 9-11 if it helps to know that a friendly face will be with your kids. LP needs to provide at least 15 volunteers. Thank you in advance for your service.

  • Thursday, Nov. 5, from 8-10pm (men, not MBASA women, are needed this night)
  • Friday, Nov. 6, from 9-11am, 12-2pm, 6-8pm
  • Saturday, Nov. 7, from 8:15-10:15am, 10:45am - 1pm, 1-3pm
Main event--Saturday Nov. 7:
  • MBASA/Law Partners: 8:30 - 10am (doors locked until 8:30am and close by 10:15)
  • General BYU students, our friends & ward members: 11am - 1pm (doors will be locked until 11am)
LDS Church building on the SE corner of 800 N 700 W, Provo, UT

If you have clothing or baby gear that you or your kids have outgrown (or just don't wear anymore), you can donate it to our event. We accept good quality children's, women's and men's clothing, baby gear. If you have a large item, bring a picture of the item only and arrange for pickup from your home. We do not accept electronics, trashy household items, or anything that you wouldn't be willing to take home with you.

Please sort your clothing donations into these categories and put them in a marked bag--I use a permanent marker on a plastic Macey's bag:

0-6 mth
6-12 mth
12-18 mth
Baby gear

You can drop off your donations at my house anytime before the exchange, or you can bring them to the building Friday, Nov. 6, from 6 - 8pm.

We need you to make this happen! Please sign up--you and your husbands--on our lovely online spreadsheet. Be sure to look at all three tabs on the bottom left corner of the screen.

We have quite a few opportunities for volunteering for both you or your husbands. If you (or your husband) volunteer for 2 or more hours you will be eligible to attend a special "volunteers only" shopping hour on Friday, Nov. 6, from 8-9pm. In order to be more efficient with our time, we ask that volunteers no longer take clothes as they sort through them.

Feel free to contact me with any questions - and thanks for helping out!

Card Exchange RSVP

Wednesday, October 21st 2009, at 7pm - We will be having a homemade card and recipe exchange. In case you have never been to one we will all make a card for each person coming. If there are 10 people coming, you will make 10 cards and give one to everyone and then you leave with 10 fun new cards. It is also a great way to get some new ideas for cards. If you would like to participate in the card exchange please email me at justinaselim(at)gmail(dot)com or leave a comment here before Friday, October 16th so that I can let everyone know how many cards they will need to make. For the recipe exchange, there is not a rsvp needed. Just bring your favorite thing to make and have the recipe ready for people to copy down or you could bring it already printed out on a few cards if you wanted. Feel free to come and hang out, check out the cards, and taste the yummy food even if you are not participating in any of the exchanges. Room 306.

A Message from Sarah Banks

Hey there Law Partners! My name is Sarah Banks, and my husband is
Aaron, a 1L. Just wanted to invite all of you to my Scentsy open
house on Wed. Oct.7th from 5-9pm. Scentsy is a safe wickless candle
system that smells wonderful, and works much better than candles do.
I am the consultant, and would LOVE to see you there. There is no
pressure to buy, because I understand that we are all students, and
all in different financial situations. Please just come by to have
some yummy fall refreshments, and get to know other law partners
better. No need to RSVP, stop by any time between 5-9pm. I hope
you are all having a great week. Please e-mail me if you have any
questions. Thanks.

When you go into student housing turn left and follow it all the way
to the top of the culdesac. I am building 14-D, on the bottom right
hand corner. I hope to see you there.
