Best of 2012 • IndyPick: Way to Boost a Teen's Self-Esteem While Shopping

I'd always been curious about this little boutique that appeared the size of a broom closet. So I went in one day and found that the Teens With Promise-run Promises Thrift Store is much bigger than it looks. I also found a fabulous pair of brand-name, red peep-toes. They turned out to hurt my toes terribly, but I'm not the least bit upset, as the $8 I paid goes to a terrific cause — helping teens stay in school. Teens With Promise provides kids with clothes for little to nothing through the thrift shop, and uses money from sales to help students get the things they need to stay in school, including learning materials. If it can help some of the 20 percent of teens in our community who drop out before graduation, well, I'm up for giving another pair of peep-toes a shot. — Pam Zubeck
