This holiday season, and throughout the year, we like to participate in various charitable initiatives. Here a few ways we give back to our community and pay it forward, to help others:
This week, we are excited and honored ( did you take a look at that list of sponsors.. meep!) to be baking for a pop up shop in the Union Square Holiday Market to benefit the High School of Food and Finance. Stop by to get a sweet treat from some of New York’s best bakers, (and moi!) to help the next wave of culinary entrepreneurs!
We are riding in Cycle for Survival again, for the 7th consecutive year this March. Every dollar raised goes directly to Memorial Sloane Kettering Hospital’s research labs, and their work has already saved lives across the globe. We still have a few spots on our team available, if you would like to ride, and we would be most appreciative of your donations. You can make a gift in someone’s honor, which in our opinion is the ultimate holiday present. It is fun and memorable event that truly changes the lives of cancer patients and their families. Click the link to above to get to our team page, and message me if you would like to ride with us.
Our family friend and former pediatrition Dr. Jane Aronson is doing amazing things for children internationally. Her charity, Worldwide Orphan’s Foundation, strives to transform the lives of orphaned children and help them become healthy, independent, productive members of their communities and the world. From building hospitals in remote areas, to providing them with exposure to the arts, to building a team of “orphan rangers ” to spend quality time with these childen, the work she does it priceless.

Lastly, we are thrilled to be a contributor to Mogul, an information sharing website that unites women across the world. In addition to interesting stories on a vast array of subjects, Mogul offers a series of online courses. For each one you enroll in, the entire set of courses goes to a girl in need. The subjects range from Entrepreneurship, Finance and Career Development, to Beauty, Fitness and Travel. Check out a course, and give the gift of education to a girl who might not have the opportunity otherwise.
There are so many other worthy causes, we couldn’t begin to list here. Whatever you passion is, we encourage you to support it through your time, or your financial contributions.
