Dear Friends:

Martin Luther King Day is very special for us. We mark it with a day of service to others. One year we helped the victims of the Haiti earthquake and assisted an abused women's shelter. Another year we assembled 30 care packages filled with personal hygiene items for the homeless in downtown LA. Donations of clothing were given to a Church in Carson.

Richstone Family Center LogoThe past year we have adopted the Richstone Family Center as a "company" charity. Richstone helps abused children and dysfunctional families and has been a dynamic presence in Los Angeles. Check out their website, Richstonefamily.org. Pretty impressive. And like all charities, run on a thin, thin thread of a budget and many very dedicated staffers and volunteers. Amazing what they can do with so little.

As you may know we are donating the proceeds of our sale items to Richstone! You can help by going to mockett.com/sale. Order big!

MLK Day we assembled bags of school supplies for their kids, such as pencils, pens, notebooks - we did 72 of them.

Over the past year we have collected clothing for donation as well, and we packed over 10 huge bags of clothes. Richstone may use some or all, and donate further on the remainder.

Many thanks to all our employees who helped out - you made it a Very Good Day!
