NYJL Golden Tree

Even though my schedules still all crazy and doesn’t look like it will regulate until the new year) IT’S FRIDAY and man does that feel good.

So yesterday, I spent my morning volunteering at a NYJL event called Golden Tree:  a premiere holiday shopping event hosted at the League’s headquarters on the UES. It’s three floors of boutique vendors, most of whom typically exclusively sell merchandise online. If you have shopping left to do, and are looking for a unique gift for someone special, this may be your place! If you haven’t already ordered your ticket, you can still buy it at the door. The shopping continues all day (and night!) today until 10pm and tomorrow (Saturday 12/7) until 5pm. Proceeds from the event support the League’s charitable activities. Further info here. Shopping AND supporting a great cause – could there BE anything more festive?!

Movember: Better Late than Never

I know. I’m hopping onto this bandwagon 18 days fashionably late. But I’m here now and that’s all that counts, right?

We all know what Movember is by now, so I won’t bore you with a definition. Last night I did some research on how to donate and decided to create a page in remembrance of my brother, who lost a long, hard fight against prostate cancer two years ago. In the coming years, I hope to do more with this movement and even set some fundraising goals for myself. Since I’m late to the party this year, I’m just encouraging anyone who’d like to be involved in a good cause, has some change to spare, and/or wants one last crack at getting on Santa’s nice list to donate a few bucks to a really great cause: increasing awareness and raising funding for men’s health!

Click, click, click if you’d like to make a donation or get more information on this great cause! Feel free to reach out to me directly, as well: littlegirlandthebigapple (at) gmail (dot) com.
