The First Annual HARLEM CARES Toy and Coat drive was a great social brought to you by Pretty in Black Catering, Everything Girls Love and myself with a host of amazing sponsors who represented their company with giveaways as an incentive. This event was hosted by Yandy Smith at 2647 Harlem Bar and Lounge. As attendees brought toys and coats they received a complimentary raffle ticket for a chance to win amazing prizes. All of the donations of toys and coats will be allocated throughout the Harlem community by the People’s Resource and Development Association @originalhousewifecollection

End Hunger Campaign donation to the Food Bank for New York
December 17, 2013

Hello good morning (inserts my 2 step dance here.) Although it is afternoon time Splashy readers let me give you a reSPLASH of how I spent the top of my morning. I met with Noemie Craven the Campaigns and Events Manager (how smart you are; yes that is her above without playing Blue’s clues or using a handy dandy notebook lol.) After the breakdown and mission behind collaborating with City Winery to sell wine alongside sell my Splashy cups to assist in this imperative cause Noemie was estatic to know the vision moving forward.

Everyday we are faced with witnessing someone who is less fortunate than us asking for money, food and sleeping in the subway stations lacking the luxury of having a stable living environment. I took the initiative to create a campaign that I believe should be addressed and rectified towards ending hunger. In creating an innovative way of incorporating fundraising tactics for the End Hunger campaign it included stepping out of the box, introducing others to a simple product that sells itself.

This project came about attending a food and wine festival I volunteered at. My focus then became how can I contribute to awareness further, the proceeds of selling wine and my Splashy cups were allocated to feeding any less fortunate person through a simple act of kindness.

In collaboration with City Winery in a little over a month, the response has been tremendous. The end result have touched people in ways I could not have dared to imagine.

The starting point was formulating the idea, executing and seeing it through and people will support your efforts. I want to thank all of the supporters that made a donation, contribution and spread the word on my efforts in Ending Hunger.

Special Thank you to:
