|Thirteen shops will participate in Top of the Block on August 12th to benefit Operation Smile|
Please join Alisyn Camerota, myself, Robin Meltzer and Anne Sylvester for shopping, smiles and fun!
One of the most amazing things about all of the volunteer work I have done with Operation Smile is how many people have stepped forward to help me in the past four years to help me raise money for them. So many wonderful people have donated or offered to help raise money it is truly incredible. All of this giving in the spirit of friendship has given me so much happiness I could never possibly repay all these people. It has inspired my belief that all of us have the ability to #triggerhappiness with kind gestures and by supporting our loved ones and others in need.

And finally, my friend Robin Meltzer, who I met through my PR firm's work for the Alzheimer's Association and the Rita Hayworth Gala. Robin is one of those people who just gets it. Maybe it is because she is a psychologist and a working mother but, really I think it is because Robin is just a wonderful woman.
When Robin chaired the Rita Hayworth Gala in 2012, we went to lunch to discuss the event and chatted about our personal and professional lives. In the last five years of my PR business when I had begun to do so much non profit work, you got to know clients and board members on a whole different level. Because people are often involved with charities for very personal reason (both of our families have experience with Alzheimer's), it offers you an opportunity to get to know people in a way that you might not if you are promoting a lipstick or vodka for instance.

Immediately after that first lunch, Robin purchased two bears and it really touched my heart. Since then, we have become even closer and I am so happy that she is joining me as a co-host for Top of the Block.
Both my husband and I are far from the homes where we grew up and when you don't have the benefit of being surrounding by family, your friends become your family and share all the different milestones in your life. I am so lucky to have these women and so many more, in my life. They #triggerhappiness for me me all the time. Have a great day!
