The Who and What? 
Ok, here's the skinny... 
Many of you know about my favorite charity
 I am a board member and happy to help wherever needed
because this non-profit is making huge leaps
to help children with brain differences.
Flawless has its hands in many projects
but we are raising money
this Halloween bash 
for a special partnership between Flawless and
another non-profit organization
 bring yoga to NYC inner city schools
Read my August post about this partnership.

So, what's not to love? 
 a  raucus, fun-filled Halloween party that promises
to be
this year's hottest event in NYC 
and the proceeds go to a very worthwhile cause.

 We will all don our favorite costumes,
dance the night away
with Aera Dance, take in a  
 special performance by Kitty Cavalier Burlesque
&  appearances from 
The Fabulous Subscribettes
But, gosh Flawless founder Janine Francolini needs a good,
no not good,
fabulous mask -
something creative and fun

What should you do? 

 spend a few minutes (maybe on Google),
find a peacock-inspired mask for sale 
(Flawless' mascot is a peacock) --
send along the information/link
on how to purchase it
for Janine to wear to the party. 

Post a link of where to purchase
this mask with a photograph of it on  
the Flawless Foundation's Facebook wall

The Contest ends next Sunday  
If Janine chooses your mask,
she'll buy it and wear it to the party,
you will win
 2 VIP tickets
 to join us
 for an evening of fun and celebration.  
  the peacock is the inspiration for Janine's mask

get out of here
and win those tickets
get your face painted
And don't forget your dancing shoes...

I'll announce the winner right here on Nest  
Sunday, October 23rd
I'm keeping my
finger's crossed
for you!

We all never think it will be us or a loved one -- until it IS. Way to have vision, concern and bake in a ton of good fun in the process of raising funds for this cause!

Thanks you guys -- great friends to check this out and yes Flawless is an amazing foundation. I have known Janine Francolini since she was both Gabby and Miles' nursery school admissions director. She is smart as a whip and now she has this amazing organization she started from a mere idea, growing leaps and bounds by the day and putting a festive and uplifting mood to a topic that is rarely discussed in most circles -- children experiencing difficulties of this nature is hard for many of us to grasp,yet Flawless is reaching out in the community and educating and bringing programs to schools and communities to help in a multitude of ways. My mother was a social worker my whole life and so I grew up with understanding how important it is to help others, and now at Flawless I'm enjoying all of it. xo tamara
