Back in July, I was at a meeting with some reputable businesses and suggested about a “Giving Back” showcase. Well, the response from them was so unbelievable, that it is becoming a huge event. We all agreed that any sales from the showcase will have a percentage of proceed donated to a charity of choice. We are so excited for October 14th, 2009 to come…this will be our first of many “GIVING BACK CELEBRATIONS SHOWCASE”.
I just want to personally thank everyone that is working so hard to make this event come about. It is such a win-win-win situation. When the vendor makes a sale.., a charity gets a donation…the customer gets the satisfaction of knowing that they are getting what they need for their celebration and helping out others. Just imagine walking around and seeing all these vendors giving back to our community…
In our lifetime, we all have a celebration of some sort, whether it will be a wedding, a birthday, a anniversary. These Paying Forward vendors that will be present are for special events for any occasion. It will be a fantastic night with the mixture of music, flowers, gowns & tuxes, photographers, favors, limos, tasting and so much more. There will be Lessings at MeadowEdge, Roger’s Tuxedos, Bayport Flowers Houses, to name a few that will be joining with TWG Signature Boards at this big event
The following charities are also excited to be involved with this. Donations were never presented to them in this way. We have as charity benefactors: LI2Day Walk, Schneider’s Children Hospital, JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes), Victims Information Bureau Services, Let's Rock and Roll for a Cure and many more.
I will continue on in my next blog for all that is curious to see how this all turns out. So far, I could not ask for anything more then the positive direction it is heading!

As a continuation of my June blog, I just want you to know how good I feel on just the discussion of “giving back”. I’m really pushing the awareness of how necessary it is to donate or give back to those in need. I ‘m amazed on how many people are affected by breast cancer, diabetes, etc., either themselves or someone they love.
This month, I was compelled to donate a “Signature Board” to the State Farms “Grand Opening” in

Today I want to introduce to you an organization very dear to me. LI2Day Walk is a walk on Long Island that is to raise money for Breast Cancer on Long Island. Oh I can write forever about Ginny Salerno and her committees amazing magic that allows 100% of the money the walkers raise goes to the cause and not to the day to day operations of doing the walk. Just click on the logo to learn more.
I found out that LI2Day have awesome wedding/ celebration favor ideas. Just imagine having your guest go home with a keepsake of your event knowing a donation was made to this needed organization as part of the favor or in lieu of the favor. Its a win win feel GREAT token that keeps on giving! For more ideas please contact Kristie Moore firstname.lastname@example.org tell her TWG sent you!
I'm sure others may have unique ideas of how to Give while planning a celebration. I would love to hear your thoughts. Just GIVING BACK a little part of your special day in your own special way can mean a world to others.
