5% Goes to Housing Works!

On November 9th I had the honor of being part of Michelle & Michael’s eclectic and swank wedding at the Housing Works Bookstore Café in Manhattan. For their 5% donation they have chosen to give to (of course) Housing Works! It’s another Event that Gives Back!”.

An excerpt from their website:

Since our founding in 1990, we have been at the forefront of advocacy efforts to ensure that New York City provides housing and related supportive services to low-income and homeless New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS. We closely track the city agency charged with overseeing subsidies for poor New Yorkers with AIDS, the HIV/AIDS Services Administration (HASA), and we push for improvements and expansion of HASA services. Every year, we doggedly lobby the mayor and city council to make the best funding decisions around HIV prevention and care, especially for those most at-risk: drug users, transgender people, people of color, the poor, the homeless, and those with mental illnesses. Sometimes our lobbying takes the form of rallies, protests, and creative civil disobedience actions.

5% Goes to Kitty Kind!

Stephanie & Steve had an exquisite rooftop wedding at Midtown Loft & Terrace on August 24 and they have chosen KittyKind for their 5% donation, the “amazing cat rescue organization” from which they got their “amazing kitties Jenga & Ella”. It’s another Event that Gives Back!”.

An excerpt from their website:

KittyKind is an all-volunteer group. We have no paid staff. We all must work regular jobs to support ourselves and the cats. Regardless of how a cat comes to us, while in our care they receive food, shelter, daily handling and attention, as well as vet care when needed. Most of our cats are in foster homes, living with our volunteers, rescuers, or members of the public who have generously offered to provide temporary sanctuary for a cat in need. 

5% Goes to ASPCA!

After working with my clients Betty & David to plan their Brooklyn wedding at reBar on April 14 , they chose ASPCA for their 5% donation – another Event that Gives Back!

An excerpt from their website:

“Founded in 1866, the ASPCA was the first humane organization in the Western Hemisphere. Our mission, as stated by founder Henry Bergh, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.” While there are SPCAs and humane societies all over the country, the ASPCA is not directly affiliated with them. However, the ASPCA works nationally to rescue animals from abuse, pass humane laws and share resources with many shelters across the country.”
