Gear for Girls Update

See the flier below about our Gear for Girls event to benefit PACE. We are no longer placing collection boxes around town, but are relying on word of mouth. If you have items to donate, please let us know at and we'll be happy to come pick up whatever you have!

We Loved the Keystone Residents!

Pie is always a good excuse to get people together. Since it's National Pie month, we went to Keystone Rehab in Kissimmee to deliver some Valentine Love and delicious pies to the residents. The residents were more than happy to see us! Thank you to all of our awesome volunteers for donating your time! Special thanks goes out to Fulton's Crab House, Portobello Italian Restaurant, and Wolf Gang Puck's Cafe for donating all of the pies we needed! They were a huge hit with the residents. Special thanks also goes to Melissa Hall for stuffing goody bags, and Cindy Stavisky for doing all the leg work to get the pies! We'd also like to thank all of you who took time to create fun Valentine Cards. Store bought cards are nice, but handmade cards are super special! They were in good hands and were expertly delivered by our founder's 4 and 2 year old sons. They were more than happy to have a job to do. Enjoy the pictures below of today's event!

Gear for Girls - March Event

It's official! We will be helping PACE Center for Girls during the month of March in honor of Women's History Month. We will be placing collection boxes around town for people to donate "stuff" that girls ages 12-18 would like. PACE has a program in which the girls are able to earn points. They then have a huge auction in which the girls can use their points to bid on items. Here is how you can help:

-Own a business? Host a box for us and tell your customers what it's all about!
-Ask a few favorite businesses to host a box
-Donate something a girl, age 12-18 would like to have (doesn't have to be new)
-Volunteer your time to pick up and drop off boxes at predetermined locations

If interested, give us a shout at

Thinking Ahead to April...

While we hammer out more details for our March event, we wanted to let everyone know that we will be walking for March of Dimes in the March for Babies event. This three mile walk around beautiful Lake Eola here in downtown Orlando will take place on April 30th at 7:30am. We are walking in honor of our friend Angela Michael's baby girl, Hannah, who was born about three months too soon.

If you are unable to walk but would like to help us, please consider making a donation to one of our team members. The link to sign up for the walk, or to donate to our team is:

Mark your calendars! Hope to see you there! As my friend Jill, the founder of the Delaware Housewives likes to say, "there is strength in VOLUNTEER numbers" :)
