This Saturday, May 10th, HappyDoll will be hosting it’s annual Spring Cleaning Party in NYC! The event is a fun way to get rid of all the old items in your closet, and make room for new ones, all for a good cause! We ask guests to bring their clean and unwanted clothes, shoes, accessories, kitchenware, toys, books, etc. in good condition, to exchange with other guests and the items that they have brought. Everything remaining after the event will be donated to the respective charities!
At this year’s party we are also looking to collect 5 LAPTOPS to donate to the amazing organization Labdoo.org. Labdoo works to send retired laptops, ebook readers, and tablet-PCs, loaded with learning software, to needy young students around the world. They currently support schools and youth projects in more than 80 countries, in 5 continents.
The laptops collected at this year’s party will be traveling back to Barcelona with Labdoo Co-Founder Jordi Ros-Giralt, along with 50 HappyDolls! The dolls will be dropped off at one of the Labdoo hubs in Barcelona, as the laptops will travel onward to Kisumu, Kenya and delivered to a school down there.
We will also be serving light food and beverages, catered by some very talented friends:
1) Yoshiko Sugimoto who catered last year’s Spring Cleaning event as well as the HappyDoll Holiday party this past Winter, will be back with some healthy and delicious foods for us to try! She’s been busy in the kitchen this past year creating unique creations, focusing on making foods that make you beautiful both inside and out. Read more about Yoshiko’s catering on her blog.
2) Neha Ramani will be bringing some of her delicious “baby cup” cakes! She has just started her cupcake business, and we are excited for you to try them! Check out some of her lovely creations on her facebook page.
We cannot wait for this year’s Spring Cleaning Party, and hope those attending are as excited as we are!!
Look forward to seeing you this Saturday!
