New York Jets star linebacker Erin Henderson announced that he is helping Jersey City children in Back2School efforts today, Thursday August 27th at 12 noon.

Henderson teamed up with AngelaCARES and the United Way of Hudson County to provide needed school supplies and even sports memorabilia to students at Urban Expedition Summer Camp and the Miss Chevonne School of Etiquette.  The distribution ach child in these programs will receive a book bag filled with supplies.

“School is essential for the success of our young people,” Angela V. McKnight Founder and CEO of AngelaCARES said.  “Unfortunately, many students do not have and many families cannot afford even the basic supplies such as a notebook, pen, pencil or folders to attend school.”

“I am always willing to provide a way, outlet or spot of hope for those in need, especially children and initiatives that promote education.  Reaching out to get involved was a no brainer for me,” said Henderson.

Back to School!

IMAG4556

After selling most of my stuff at the Riverview Fisk Flea Market two weeks ago, I felt justified to buy new things.

Even though it’s been a while since I’ve gone “back to school,” this time of year is a great time to revamp your life and begin a new chapter.

New season, new things. Right? I rarely buy for myself, but it is just high time that I do. My sneakers are failing me. My clothing is getting thready. My iPod and phone are both glitchy. My jewelry just bores me. And I really, really want a bike.

I began my new (frugal) shopping spree with a corduroy bomber jacket, two skirts and a new sketchbook/journal. The hair-bows are from the 6th Borough Market.

I then bought some things (T-shirts, candle, soaps, lip balm, wristlets and baby headband) at the All About Downtown Street Fair. Most of these are gifts.
