Give With Me
As the holiday season begins I always reflect on my life and those around me, and those who are less fortunate in need of some warmth and cheer. It’s a time when I have all the feelings, ya know? I’m sure you do too. One of my favorite ways to give back this holiday season is through Together We Rise, a partner of Echo who are working hand-in-hand on their 3rd Annual Event to Share The Warmth. Here’s how it works: For every cold weather item purchased online at Echo from November 18th to December 24th, Echo will donate a similar cold weather item to Together We Rise. To really get the donations going I’m hosting an charitable event with Echo at Bloomingdales at their 59th Street location on December 3rd in the evening. I’m going to be styling every person that comes and help them to pick out holiday gifts at the event – so if you’re in NYC, please come! In addition to their online sales, for every purchase made at the event Echo will make a donation to Together We Rise.
Together We Rise is a non-profit organization comprised of former foster youth and motivated young individuals to bring resources like new bicycles, school supplies, and suitcases to foster children in need. Sweaters, caps, gloves, and beanies are included in that list of things these young people need, and it’s so easy to help a lending hand by participating in the Share the Warmth campaign with Echo. Here are some of my favorite Echo items right now – and remember, with each purchase you make, Echo will donate a similar item to Together We Rise!
