4 Charities To Get Involved With This Fall… Sept 20th ’14

Hosp

 
Everyone is always asking me what are my favorite charities to get involved in, and what are some great causes.  I decided to put a LYSST together of some of my favorites that you can get involved in. 
 
OCRF
Every summer Divamoms host our Camp DivaLysscious at Super Saturday hosted by Donna Karan, Kelly Rippa and Ariel Foxman to support Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.  September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month.  This is a great cause for any woman to get involved.  Our ovaries are important Ladies. Think about it, take care of yourselves and learn more about this cause.  It’s Diva #DefiniteLyssly! http://www.ocrf.org/
 
Children’s Health Fund
A friend invited me to Children’s Health Fund Party for Potential at Catch Thursday night, and even though I couldn’t make it – I was very interested Children’s Health Fund and it’s mission.  Children’s Health Fund was founded by Paul Simon and Irwin Redlener to provide national health care to undeserved children.  They are finding that there is a correlation between kids who are sick and their attendance at school.  We take for granted great health care, and doctors for our children. Just this morning I was on the phone with my kids doctors. But it’s not something some families can afford, when they are trying to survive. Health care is NO joke…..A Diva Must.  childrenshealthfund.org
 
Baby Buggy
Founded by Jessica Seinfeld, this one is an obvious why this #loverecycled is on our DIVALYSST.  Baby buggy helps families in need by providing essentials like clothing.  They always have the most fabulyss events to help raise awareness. One of my favorite events that both my boys and I always look forward to is their pajama party in the central park it is always a great way to bring attention to a great charity. Can’t wait to see how they may get some Diva Dads involved in their new fatherhood initiative. www.babybuggy.org
 
Candelighters
I don’t know a single person who hasn’t really been touched by cancer in one way or another.  No matter what, It’s horrible when I hear about women with breast or ovarian cancer, but it’s worse when we hear about children with cancer.  Candelighter’s helps through all stages: discovery, diagnosis, treatment and remission -  it’s not something you wish for anyone to go through, but with their mission “Because Kids Can’t Fight Cancer Alone” this one makes our DivaLysst for sure!

#BTS, Back To School & More… Sept 12th ’14

The summer came and gone! We are in full throttle back to school mode. My boys are off! 2nd & 5th grade here they come! #Myworld ❤️#Brothers #School… I will admit as much as I can’t wait for them to go back to school… I still get a bit teary eyed on the first day and shed a few tears.

boys school

I love taking the boys back to school shopping! New backpacks, sneakers and of course love the way all the new school supplies look.  Did you see my #BTS Fashion LYSST in the September issue of New York Family Magazine?

Style

Talking about back to school.. we had our #FabULyss annual Ins/Outs Getting your child/children into the best school for you and your family event.  Admissions Guru Dana Haddad answered all the important questions that the parents going through this process had. They left feeling a little (a lot) less stressed.

Now that the kids are back in school, be the star of the show!

I still cannot believe that Joan Rivers passed away.

So sad #RIPJoanRivers… you always had a way with words and knew how to make everyone laugh — feeling happy. You will greatly be missed. One of my first Summer internships in college was with her show. She always made us feel like we were a part of the staff and not just “the interns”.

Joan

911 We Will Never Forget… Sept 11th ’14

Years

I still cannot believe it’s been 13 years since 911. I know we all have our own story of this horrific day that we will never forget. It’s a very somber day, I woke up feeling sad. The weather is gloomy as if it knows that today is a sad day for everyone. A friend of mine  said today I will commit to random acts of kindness. Because I want to remember 9/11 by being the change I want to see in the world. #kindness #respect #compassion #passion #loving #peaceful #confident #funny #patient #friendly #warm

I could not agree more with these words. As the news in the world has been so horrific as of lately. We need to remember to be kind to each other and teach our children about love, respect, kindness and being thankful each and every day. Recently a friend challenged me to a 7 days of gratitude challenge on FaceBook. I decided that instead of boring everyone with my daily updates I would accept the challenge on my blog. I cannot honestly say, as I reflect on today and every day that my three children are what I give the most gratitude for. I would move mountains for these three children. The saying I love you to the moon and back… well this was made for me and my children. I am so thankful for these three smart, beautiful, individual, passionate, loving children.
