#RedNoseDay

21 May

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard about Red Nose Day. Today we are wearing our red noses to raise awareness and funds for children living in poverty. We had a little fun at the office hamming it up for the camera! tss-redNoseDay2015-group-picture

The Stationery Studio is getting involved by donating 50 cents for every “like”, “share”, “repost” or “retweet” with a goal of $1,000 to donate to The Red Nose Day Fund!  So make sure you follow us (and like our post!) on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to help us raise needed funds.

So what is Red Nose Day?  Red Nose Day is a campaign dedicated to raising money for children and young people living in poverty by simply having fun and making people laugh. The inaugural Red Nose Day in the U.S. is May 21st, 2015. People across the country will come together to have fun and raise funds and awareness.

Money raised through Red Nose Day will go to The Red Nose Day Fund, a program of Comic Relief Inc., a U.S. 501(c)3, public charity.

The Stationery Studio + One Warm Coat

3 Nov

As we approach the holiday season, we start thinking about all the gifts we need to buy.  We start working on our lists (and checking them twice!) and planning all of our shopping to get everything done in time.  This time of year is also a great time to give back to those in need.  The Stationery Studio is proud to be hosting their 3rd annual coat drive through One Warm Coat.  When we put out our donation box, it always fills up quickly.

We collect gently used coats, blankets, hats and gloves for those in our community in need.  What’s so heartwarming is when you watch actual recipients receive the coats and try them on.  You see how much it means to get the coats as winter is fast approaching.  Of course, donating coats isn’t the only way to give back during the holidays.  Some other ideas you can do at your work place:

  • Host a food drive for your local food pantry.  Food pantries are often forgotten during the holidays and this is a great time to help out.
  • Sponsor families in your community that could use your help.  Reach out to your township and ask who might need help this holiday season.
  • Host a toy drive for kids in need.

While these are a few ideas, there are many opportunities to give back this holiday season.  Please share in the comments below if you have other great ideas for people who are looking to give back at their work place.  I would love to hear how you help get everyone in the giving spirit during the holiday season!
