Skating With The Greats For A Great Cause

I’m very happy to announce that I’m going to be doing some pro bono writing this year for a really great charity: The Ronald McDonald House of New York. If you’re not familiar, this is a place where sick children getting treatment in New York hospitals can stay, with their families, for the ridiculously low […]


Black Bottom Cupcakes For Charity With Bake It Happen!

I love to bake, I really do. For me, baking is its own reward, getting to create something that I can share with other people and make them happy through food. But with the Bake It Happen campaign, my baking actually raises money – and no, I don’t have to sell the baked goods! It’s […]


A charity Walk That Won’t Give You Blisters

[The following post was sponsored by the Light The Night Campaign.] If you know me you know that I participate in a lot of walks and runs.

That’s why I’m baking this weekend, to make a small contribution to the fight against pediatric cancer. Cookies for Kids’ Cancer was started by two parents after their son was diagnosed with cancer. Now, people […]

Posting from my bathroom for charity

So I’m sitting in my bathroom writing this post. No, I’m not doing that, I’m waiting for my hair dye to penetrate my gray hairs and dark roots. What would make me dye my hair on a Tuesday when I have so many other things I should be doing? The RBaby Foundation. I first heard […]

ONE’s 12 Days of Change: my “sweet” contribution

I’m thrilled to be chairing a campaign from (you know, Bono?) that will give you twelve different ways to raise awareness about how lucky we are to live where we live, and about what’s going on in places not so fortunate. ONE does not ask people like us to write a check. They help […]
