TINSEL Thanksgiving Give Back

My my. It's a scary, rough world out there. With all the craziness happening in the news lately, we've been having a hard time keeping our heads up. But, nothing will get done if we keep our eyes down and hide in our houses. So, we wanted to take a moment to write about our Monday. It was beautiful, and we want to share that beauty with all of you. It's not much, but little beautiful moments like these make these hard times a little bit easier to handle. 

Earlier this week, TINSEL partnered with the Lower Manhattan Arts Academy, LoMA, to bring a little more beauty in kids' lives. We held a class on floral arrangement and taught students the art of creating the perfect centerpiece, and it was a blast. We had so much fun hanging out with these talented artists, and they were so eager to learn. So we put them to work! 

The results were gorgeous. The arrangements were featured during their annual school Thanksgiving dinner, and the students were all smiles. A couple of them were even interested in internships with us, and from their work, we think they'd be a great fit.

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Our stay was brief, but it was beautiful. Big bear hugs and thanks to the talented duo Chellise and Michael. We're looking forward to more fun times with LoMA, so stay tuned for updates on our new friends. Together, we can make things a little bit better. 

With love,
