Healing Arts for Haiti

12 Feb

Head to the Grand Ballroom at the Hyatt on E. 42nd St today from 12-8pm and receive some very special spa services from Healing Arts for Haiti. According to their press release, “Healing Arts For Haiti is a collaboration bringing together over 200 professionals from the spa and healing arts community and the health and beauty industry of New York City metro area for an event to bring the art of healing to the act of giving all in one location.”

Once inside, you should be able to find a slew of healing activities to partake in, from massages and facials to express acupuncture and yoga. 100% of the proceeds from the entire day will be generously donated to Unicef, chosen for their long-standing commitment to helping children around the globe. In addition to getting pampered today, you can purchase products and services (for up to 75% off retail prices) to pamper yourself at a later date. There will also be live music all day by various artists, a silent auction and raffle prizes from big names in beauty (L’Occitane, MAC, and Bliss, just to name a few).

So take an extra long lunch break today and go get a massage for Haiti. And with all those beauty and spa treatments on sale, it’s the perfect place for you guys out there who haven’t gotten your ladies Valentine’s Day presents yet. Just don’t tell them how much you paid for it…


Fundraiser for Haiti Relief

4 Feb

Come have a drink and meet fellow OneBrick volunteers at Sidebar. 15% of food and drink purchases and 100% of direct donations will go to Partners in Health for their relief efforts in Haiti. If you’d like to RSVP, you can do so on the OneBrick website.

According to their website,”Partners In Health is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation based in Boston, Massachusetts, and active in the Caribbean, Latin America, Africa, Russia, and the United States. Our mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. Through service, training, advocacy, and research, and by establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations, PIH strives to achieve two overarching goals: to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair.” Partners In Health (PIH) has been working on the ground in Haiti for over 20 years, and has been providing emergency medical services in Port-au-Prince and the surrounding region since the earthquake.

Cocktail For A Cause: Fresh Water for Haiti

4 Feb

Cocktail for a Cause will be collaborating with Earth Rights Institute to raise funds for water relief in Haiti. Safe Water Today will be providing emergency supplies to the Tulip Siphon Water Filters: a high quality, low cost unit home water treatment system which can be used for water purification in emergency situations. The great thing about these filters is that the use of one filter over a 24 hr period could provide enough clean water to service up to 40 people.

Taking place at Kush Lounge from 6-9pm tonight, you’ll be able to make a donation at the door to this cause and receive drink specials all night. To buy tickets in advance for $15, click here.
