As some of you know, I have been actively involved in the Syrian refugee crisis for the past year. We are sending a SHIPPING CONTAINER of clothing items to the Softex Camp, a camp in Thessaloniki, Greece, were most of my projects are being implemented. My team will meet container and distribute.  We are collecting clothing on a FAMILY BY FAMILY basis. When you “adopt” a tent, you are saying you will provide clothing (gently used or new) for each family member living in that tent. Tent sizes range from 1-9 people.  See flyer here:

Additionally, if you can’t Adopt-A-Tent, I am in need of gently used or new items for Tents I’m providing clothing to. I have size info for all children listed. The children tend to be small and thin so on small size of age group.  If gently used, washed and non-soiled only please. This includes the following:

  • New born clothes. Mom is 8+ months pregnant and has nothing for baby.
  • Nursing bras. Sports bras with removable pads are easiest bc of flexibility of size
  • Clothing for Boys (sneakers, socks, pants, long sleeve t, sweater, jacket):  1) three 4 year boys, 2) One 6 yr boy, 3) One 7 year old boy, 4) One 9 yr boy
  • Clothing for Girls (sneakers, socks, pants, long sleeve t, sweater, jacket): 1) two 10 yr old girls, 2) One 8 yr, 3) One 7 yr, 4) One 4 yr, 5) Two 1 yr old girl babies.

Anyone who Adopts-A-Tent AND mails package to container in Detroit, will get $10 off next purchase at Violette. I am thankful for your help. If need be, i will pack and mail everything myself. We have 1800 people (350 families) to cloth before cold weather sets in. Thank you for helping.

If you are interested in Adopting-A-Tent, please email me at cupcakes@violettegf.com and i will assign you a family. Otherwise, other items listed here can be brought to bakery. If you can help me sort, pack and mail, please let me know. It takes a village, and i certainly need a village to pull this off! Thank you!
