Blogger Garage Sale For Women In Need!

(We're requesting a suggested donation of $5 and/or an unwrapped toy for entry)

This Sunday, we're having a blogger garage sale at Arrojo, from 12-4 pm, to raise funds for Women In Need, a New York based organization that houses and helps homeless women and children. They not only provide shelter, but also counseling, rehabilitation, education and all of the tools they need to live independently.

In addition to the blogger garage sale (featuring Kim of Eat Sleep Wear, Helena of Brooklyn Blonde, and of course, Bobby and me - more to be confirmed) we will also have several amazing giveaways from our favorite companies, as a thank you for helping to spread the word through your social media outlets. 100% of the funds raised will go directly to Women In Need.

This organization is near and dear to my heart, and I want to do anything I can to help raise funds and awareness - but I need your help!  Any support you can offer is welcome. At the moment, we are still looking for volunteers and donations toward the sale - and of course, attendees! Please come and show your support. If you can't make it (or even if you can), please spread the word on your blog, twitter, facebook, etc. Please email me ( if you would like to get involved.

Invite designed by Kim of Eat Sleep Wear. Special thanks to Socialyte and Arrojo for helping to make all of this happen, and to all of the companies, bloggers and readers for their contributions!

  2. Keiko, I think its so wonderful that you are doing this. If we can't be there or aren't close enough to donate is there another way we can help out? An online donation site? Just wondering. Good luck! :)

  3. I think I MIGHT be able to do this. But it's hard because I live in New Jersey and I have to take the train in, but I'll definitely try!
