Love, Joy, Hope and Giving: St. Jude and LOFT Launch Symbolic Charms to Benefit Kids with Cancer


Two things it’s hard to argue with–really good deals and helping out kids with cancer…ok, not necessarily in that order šŸ˜‰

When I was invited to an event by Trumpeting Media at the LOFT Flatiron store at which I would

a. get an exclusive preview of Loft’s new charms benefiting St. Jude before they officially went on sale


b. have the chance to chat with blogging buddies over cocktails and hors oeuvres while shopping the store at 30% off

I didn’t have to think for too long before I said yes.

At the event, we were privileged to hear from Gracie, a little girl who had received life-saving treatments at St. Jude and was proud to have been a part of the marketing campaign for the organization that saved her life at no financial cost to her family.


Baskin-Robbins 31 cent scoop night is almost here! 4/28/2010

I admit it, as much as I believe in feeding my family healthy, chemical-free food, I have a soft spot in my heart for Baskin-Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream.  That glowy bright green color, produced by God knows what part of the periodic table, just makes me love it even more.  So much so, in fact, that all other mint chocolate chip treats fail to compare.  Make mine a double with some brightly hued, nutrient-devoid rainbow sprinkles.

On  Wednesday April 28th from 5pm-10pm, participating Baskin-Robbins stores will reduce the price of ice cream scoops to 31 cents. Better yet, The Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation will be donating $100,000 of the proceeds to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundationā„¢ (NFFF). How's that for a reason to feel good about giving yourself a cheap and yummy treat?!
