It's been a stylish winter for Tabitha and Loretta Broderick, 3 year-old twin daughters of Sarah Jessica Parker and husband Matthew Broderick. The adorable mini-fashionistas have been spotted all over NYC in cute and coordinated ensembles, no doubt thanks to their style icon mom.

 

Their jackets of choice? Appaman!

 

Here's the trio in matching motorcycle style. SJP's leather moto jacket looks great with the girls' Appaman Rivington Jackets:

Friday, December 21, 2012 - Pay it Forward - Erica Atkins

For Erica's Seven Weeks of Giving contribution, she chose to donate to Mack and Third



Erica says, 

"Mack and Third is a non-profit organization that provides assistance to the homeless population of Detroit, Michigan, along with the food banks and shelters that serve them. Their annual summer concert Mack and Third Live, is an event which provides food, toiletries, medical screenings and dental services to homeless attendees. 

I discovered Mack and Third while listening to an interview of the artist Kem. Raised in Detroit, he overcame addiction and homelessness to eventually become a successful singer, songwriter, and producer. I am always touched by stories of people who triumph over formidable circumstances and use their platform to help others. Mack and Third’s commitment to the Detroit community is a shining example of this."

Tuesday, December 18, 2012 - Pay It Forward - Alyssa Miller

It's time for Alyssa's pick for Appaman's Seven Weeks of Giving!


"This year for my Pay it Forward I would like to make a donation to Charity: Water, an organization that brings clean drinking water to developing countries by drilling wells. Right now they have funded 6,994 projects and 2.7 million people will have access to clean water because of their projects. As a result of their efforts, children can spend more time in school instead of walking for water. I also love knowing that 100% of all donations go directly to funding projects in the field and that you are able to track every donation you make.

If you would like to know more about Charity: Water and learn how to make a donation visit them at www.charitywater.org."


Friday, December 14, 2012 - Pay it Forward - Katie Luscombe

For Appaman's Seven Weeks of Giving program, Katie chose to "pay it forward" to the Listening Ear Crisis Center in East Lansing, Michigan (home of her alma mater, Michigan State University...go green!).


Katie says,


"The Listening Ear defines crisis as 'any situation in which your normal coping mechanisms are ineffective or unavailable.' Their free, confidential crisis center & hotline has been open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year since July 15, 1969, providing compassionate support for callers and walk-in clients from all walks of life. The all-volunteer staff participates in 65 hours of empathy-based training to help clients cope with difficulties including depression, grief, suicide, loneliness, sexual assault, and more. They also provide free sexual assault counseling, advocacy, and community education.


I volunteered as a crisis counselor from 2004-2006, so I can say from experience that the training program is second to none, and the staff is incredibly caring and dedicated. My experience with The Ear was easily one of the most highly educational experiences of my college career, and I'm very happy to be able to give back to an organization that directly improves (and often saves) lives."

Monday, December 10, 2012 - Pay it Forward - Lynn Husum

For Lynn's "Pay it Forward" contribution, she chose to donate to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

 

 

 

We are all subject to our surroundings and some people are more fortunate than others. Many young people are never given the opportunity to make changes. The Boys & Girls Clubs of America tries to make these changes possible for young people.

 

Their mission statement:


"To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens."


This is a mission to be proud and one we can stand by at Appaman. This is why Lynn has chosen to give her donation to them. Learn more about the Boys & Girls Clubs of America at www.bgca.org.

Wednesday, December 05, 2012 - Pay it Forward - Summer Walker

Read all about Summer's choice of charity!



"For this year's Seven Weeks of Giving, I have chosen the Food Bank for New York City as my charity. Tragically, each year millions of people go hungry in the USA and many of these people live right here in New York City. In addition to distributing up to 400,000 meals a day, Food Bank helps the NYC community by running nutrition education programs and providing income tax service for the economically disadvantaged. They also do massive amounts of research and lobbying to help find long term solutions to food poverty in our country. Now more than ever, especially with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, it's important that we provide support to important institutions like Food Bank NYC. Check them out and offer your support at http://www.foodbanknyc.org/."

Friday, November 30, 2012 - Pay it Forward - Stephanie Fishman

For Stephanie's "Pay it Forward," she chose to donate to Volunteer Center of Bergen County, Inc


In her words:

"Every holiday season, I participate in their 'All Wrapped Up' program, which connects donors to local individuals in Bergen County, New Jersey who are in need of a little holiday cheer! Every year I 'adopt' 2 seniors/disabled individuals, and I get a wish list from their caseworker as to what they may need. Most years, a warm winter coat is first on the list, along with basic necessities and grocery store gift cards. When I meet with the caseworker to drop off the gifts, I get to see the excitement in the faces of some of the members at the senior or rehab center. I feel very lucky to be able to help someone have a better day. I always want to contribute to this organization through other programs as well, so your donation to the Volunteer Center of Bergen County, Inc can help in so many ways -- a literacy class for a single mom, a training session for a mentor, a service call for a repair in a disabled individual’s home -- so THANK YOU Appaman, for your immense generosity and kindness!"

You're welcome, Stephanie, and we are sure your charity will appreciate the donation. If you would like more info on this charity click here.


Wednesday, November 28, 2012 - Appaman loves Red Hook

Although Hurricane Sandy is out of the news it is definitely not out of the lives of many here on the East Coast.   Her wrath was felt far and wide and many are still dealing with picking up the pieces.  A couple weeks ago Appaman did a fundraiser on our site where 15% of all sales were collected over the course of a week and this money is now being donated to a relief effort.   We chose Restore Red Hook.  www.restoreredhook.org

We felt a kinship to this organization because it serves entrepreneurs.  The vendors that will benefit from Restore Red Hook lost their businesses due to the storm.  This not only hurts their lives but the lives of their employees, their neighborhood, and the general morale of the area.  We hope that our donation will help in the effort to get Red Hook back on its feet.

Monday, November 19, 2012 - Appaman's 7 Weeks of Giving Starts Now

 
 
Appaman loves this time of year. There is something in the spirit of the city that lifts us up and brings out the best in everyone. Whatever it is, we are all in! To continue our tradition of paying it forward, we are starting the season out with two large donations to two charities we believe in and do our best to support whenever possible: 


The first one is Baby Buggy. Baby Buggy is a wonderful organization that redistributes gently used products and apparel to families in need. They have been working overtime with the recent disaster from Hurricane Sandy and we were happy to ship them boxes of new Appaman gear for their families. 


The other company is KIDS (Kids in Distressed Situations). This is also an organization that comes to the aid of families in need during crisis situations. KIDS also received a large clothing donation from Appaman for children in need as a result of Hurricane Sandy.

Check back over the next seven weeks to see what other charities we will be supporting during this season of giving.

Monday, November 12, 2012 - Welcome aboard the Appaman train



Katie Luscombe, a lovely midwestern gal with a quirky sense of humor, incredible talents in nail art, baby naming, and impressive journalistic talents has officially joined Team Appaman. She runs our online division bringing fun social media, great customer service and online e-commerce charm.

We have been lucky enough to know Katie for a few years from her background in the children's industry and when a position opened up, we pounced. This post is long overdue, but since Katie typically does them and she is that kind of humble gal, it didn't get done. So please give a warm welcome to Katie when you get a minute.
