She totally redeemed herself for that stunt she pulled during the Superbowl halftime show (or rather for even agreeing to do that in the first place)
Aww this brings back so many memories… I remember when we were living in Madison, WI, my brother played a prank on me on Christmas morning. I had given him a big gingerbread house that I had made with my first grader sweat, blood and tears, in school. I saw a pretty decent sized present from him under the tree, so I had psyched myself for something nice, but when I unwrapped it, it was an empty milk carton with a handwritten label on the side that said “This milk carton is recyclable, it can be used as a bird feeder… etc. etc.”
My mom only knows how hard it was to pacify my crying. I can laugh at it now! :D
Building gingerbread houses and a sense of community.
This weekend, Robin Hood supporters and staff visited Women In Need, an organization that offers transitional housing and support services to women and their families, to spread some holiday cheer. Since 1989, Robin Hood has provided funding to WIN facilities in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Manhattan. Last year WIN moved over 500 families from shelter to permanent housing. In doing so, WIN has served over 10,000 individuals, connecting more than 1,000 families to Medicaid, public assistance and food stamps.
The site visit included a tour of their Brooklyn facility and an opportunity to decorate gingerbread houses with children and families that benefit from Women In Need.
