Somehow we’ve gotten around to that time of the year again when all of a sudden Halloween gives way to Thanksgiving and then five minutes later it’s Christmas. So if you’re looking around for interesting gift giving ideas why not also give back to the community and support Girl Power at the same time? The Lower Eastside Girls Club Sweet Things Bake Shop can hit both those notes for you. Celebrate autumn with their hand-painted leaf and acorn shaped butter cookies. Order an Autumn in New York Cookie Tin, or a City Winter Tin (which includes an oversized brownstone cookie made of gingerbread among other goodies).
The Girls Club also sponsors number of great free community events and a Fair Trade and Girl Made Gift Shop at the Essex Market. They continue to present programs that build Ethical, Entrepreneurial, and Environmental awareness and leadership among girls from the 4th grade to the 12th grade. They’re doing great work and really deserve your support.
And that’s my Way Cool Item of the Day.
