If you want to show the big boss that corporate giving doesn't have to mean dropping a ton of dough, sign your company up for the Wear White 4 Windfall campaign. Windfall Clothing , a terrific outfit - and I should know, I volunteer there - collects and distributes new clothing to 80 different local social service agencies. On January 26, office tower folks are encouraged to sport white duds. Every employee committing the post-Labour Day fashion faux pas donates $4 to the charity, and higher-ups match each gift.
