No child should be deprived of being given the opportunity to gain an education. In some developing countries it is a legal requirement for every child to wear a school uniform to be able to attend class. Many families face financial hardship surviving on just a few dollars a day. Resulting in a child missing out on receiving basic knowledge from attending their local school.

School uniform distributions have been made in Fiji and Tuvalu in the beautiful South Pacific.

Akin was started by a college student who resides in Hawaii who had a vision for the betterment of education, the future of our children and to alleviate some of the parents obstacles. By identifying the students who are in need the next step is to create product and apparel. The kids earn their school uniforms by participating in a community service project. The likes of Amber Mozo and Carissa Leigh have collaborated with Akin Clothing to spread this inspirational mission.

Drink inside the zoo and release my inner party animal is now crossed off of my bucketlist. The FIRST EVER festival inside Central Park Zoo last weekend was a huge success. The 2 day celebration sold out both nights. The festival held 5,000 people offering 120 different craft brews, access to view tropical birds, penguins, a special sealion show and an after party as DJ First Choice had us all dancing the night away sporting our glow sticks as accessories.

TimeOut provided the photo booth, Luke’s Lobster, Wafles and Dinges and other vendors were selling their specialities. We all know dancing and drinking works up your appetite.

As Hudson Horns a brass band roamed through the crowd delighting us with upbeat live tunes, which excited many to swing dance. It was such a lovely sight to see. One of my favorite drink of the night was Ace cider (half pear/half pineapple) in which I sipped watching the sealion show. Angry Orchard offered a new Green Apple refreshing drink that I also enjoyed. This festival made me feel like a kid again exploring different animals as we learned new facts and many getting their face painted.
