  • This holiday season, toddstreet is getting back to the basics of giving.

    More than 62 thousand people will be on the streets of NYC this winter, with 24 thousand of them being children. With the holidays coming, and really reflecting on the year behind us, we wanted a way to share with those less fortunate than ourselves. So we decided to collect basic items like soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, coats, gloves, socks, etc. and send them to the Bowery Resident’s Committee to be put to good use.

    The Bowery Residents’ Committee, a transitional service that specializes in assisting the homeless, is one of the largest and oldest organizations in New York City. For 45 years, they have successfully moved people from the streets into permanent housing, serving more than 11 thousand people through their programs just last year alone. Hearing this, we realized how much the BRC is able to accomplish but also how much demand these services are in; right here in our own city.

    Such basic items for us are monumental for those who do not have access to them. This communal effort really humbled us and allowed everyone an opportunity to give back on behalf of #tsCARES.

    For more information on the Bowery Resident’s Committee or how you can help, please visit here: http://www.brc.org/

    Kate_KoreaTrip_2In June, our video coordinator Kate Moran participated in a month-long internship through SWS (Social Welfare Society, Inc.) in South Korea, volunteering with one of their affiliated orphanages, the Ehwa Infant Reception Center, in Naju, a small town in the South Jeolla Province of South Korea. The orphanage provides a loving home for nearly 50 young children, ranging from infancy to 5 years of age. Kate assisted in childcare responsibilities, including accompanying children on trips to the medical office.

    Kate_KoreaTrip_3“My time at Ehwa was wonderful and incredibly illuminating. The children are happy, loving, and healthy, as well as extremely adorable – but what impressed me most was the tirelessly hard-working staff and caretakers who have dedicated their life into improving the lives of these young children. These children do need homes, and I hope each one of them is adopted by a loving family as quickly as possible – but they are most definitely loved.”

    When the managing editor of Babble.com, a Disney Interactive parenting website, reached out to us about supporting a pro-bono initiative for Mother’s Day, we jumped on the opportunity. Babble’s Motherhood in Focus campaign honors hard-working, single moms from low-income NYC communities who are rarely in photos with their kids; instead, they are always the ones taking the photos.

    Professional photographer, Ahna Tessler, and Babble decided to change that. Ahna spent hours with the families, capturing special moments of these moms and their children. The photos would be made into albums and canvases and unveiled to the moms at the April 30th event. So Sara Goldberg, one of our producers, gathered a team together and we got to work!

    After meeting with the Babble team and hearing their vision, we began the search for the perfect venue – a space that could drive focus to the 25 photo canvases. The Helen Mills event hall fit all the requirements!

    We volunteered our time over the last 2 months designing floor plans, developing a run of show, securing catering that included donations from local bakeries, managing lighting and production logistics and overseeing the branding and deliverables which came to life with printing donated by our incredible print partner, Refined Sight. IMG_3044We brainstormed with Babble on a daily basis, bouncing ideas off of each other and partnering in the creative development of the event.

    toddstreet photographer, Eli Tawil, graciously donated his time, and talent, to shoot the event, capturing the extraordinary moms in the moments when the images of their families were revealed for the first time.

    A HUGE thank you to Audra Jones, Meaghan Pratt, Eli Tawil, Kate Moran and Chelsea Parry for their incredible efforts on making this event a huge success! We are proud to support Babble, Motherhood in Focus, and the wonderful families they represent.

    Friends of Hudson River Park

    A toddstreet team member welcomes spring by volunteering at a city park.

    When Caitlin Halle, one of our Project Managers, told us she wanted to take a day off to go to the park, she didn’t mean she wanted to catch up on her tan. This April, Caitlin volunteered at Friends of Hudson River Park an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to the completion, care, and enhancement of Hudson River Park.

    Caitlin, an Illinois native, relocated to New York five years ago, and immediately sought out the city’s green spaces for recreation and to remain connected with nature. Hudson River Park, with its wide boardwalks and pristine lawns became a personal favorite, and she hopes everyone can benefit from city parks like it.

    “It’s important, especially in such a big city, to have spaces for children to get to enjoy sports and where families can form a community, says Caitlin, “The parks and piers along the Hudson allow families from all over to come enjoy summertime activities, sports, and camps that they might not otherwise have access to.”

    Caitlin helped greet guests at the organization’s first-annual event, which was hosted by a committee of celebrities including Martha Stewart, Brooke Shields, and Nate Berkus. The organization treated donors to a performance by singer Janelle Monae and haut cuisine from the French eatery Le District, raising nearly $500,000 in the process.

    We couldn’t agree more with Caitlin and Friends of Hudson River Park about the importance of taking care of our green spaces. It wouldn’t quite be spring in the city without them.

    Partnership for a Healthier America: 2015 Summit

    toddstreet joins forces with an outstanding government organization to promote a healthier future.

    Founded in 2010, the Partnership for a Healthier America is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization led by honorary Chairperson First Lady Michelle Obama, and some of the nation’s most respected health and childhood obesity advocates. Their annual “Building a Healthier Future” Summit serves as an opportunity for those in the private sector to address issues critical to our country’s health and well being.
    Michelle Obama, who appeared live at the summit, encouraged attendees to “celebrate, challenge, champion” the fight against childhood obesity.

    toddstreet produced six pro-bono videos for this year’s five-year anniversary summit, which included working directly with the White House on the First Lady’s “Let’s Move Campaign.” While Ronnie Litwack, our Director of Video Production, curated the content--supported by Video Coordinator, Eli Tawil--working with the PHA continues to be an enlightening and inspiring experience for all of us at toddstreet.

    “The goals of this initiative are challenging, but, the PHA is making incredible impact,” says Ronnie, who along with several other team members witnessed firsthand the dedication of the PHA staff.

    When Obama launched the “Gimme Five” Challenge, she asked Americans to use social media to share five healthy choices they’re making. Part of our five? A 5K Color Run that a number of team members will participate in this May.

    Here’s a closer look at what each of the videos showcased:

    The PHA 5 Year Anniversary video highlighted some of the organization’s nationally acclaimed achievements in promoting health and wellness to American children.

     

    The PHA Year in Review focused on what the organization had achieved in 2014, such as reaching national goals--like reducing unhealthy calories in the marketplace—years ahead of schedule.

    This new approach to urban planning--geared predominantly to low income neighborhoods--makes physical activity and healthier food options accessible to participating communities. www.centerforactivedesign.org

     

    Thanks in part to their “Drink Up” campaign bottled water purchases are projected to outsell carbonated soft drinks within the next year and a half. www.youarewhatyoudrink.org

    The Healthier Campus Initiative around the country provides healthier food options, advice from nutritionists, marked walking routes, and more recreational activities on campuses. www.ahealthieramerica.org/campuses

    On March 21st, the city of Vail, CO was a vision in pink. Dan Silva–leading Team Pinkalicious–represented toddstreet at the fourth annual Pink Vail, the world’s biggest skiing charity event that raises money for cancer patients.

    The event benefits the unique "Spirit of Survival" program at Shaw Regional Cancer Center in Edwards, CO that offers all cancer patients and survivors at Shaw the opportunity to enjoy a variety of integrative treatments.

    This year’s event eclipsed all expectations by helping raise nearly 50% more than its original $500,000 goal. Dan and Team Pinkalicious were just a few of the over two thousand participants from around the world who took part in Pink Vail 2015, which received donations from nearly 5,000 individual donors throughout all fifty states. For his third year at Pink Vail, Dan exceeded his personal $1,500 fundraising goal.

    Also on hand were Todd and his family who commemorated his mother, Shirley, and supported Dan and Team Pinkalicious.

    More than just a ski day, Pink Vail offered attendees a chance to come together to remember, celebrate, and rally for those affected by cancer. It was a day of hope and camaraderie for all, and a great reason to break out your hot pink ski suit.

    One thing we could all agree on when we started planning our annual holiday party was that we’ve had a terrific year. So, rather than a gift exchange with colleagues, our team decided to spread the good cheer by helping those in need through the Letters to Santa program.

    Some of our contributions to the Letters to Santa program

    The program was established by the U.S. Postal service just over one hundred years ago to help fulfill the wishes of children across the country. The collection, selection, and wrapping of the gifts--which included toys, clothes for one child’s new

    baby sister, and school supplies--was a collaborative effort, and one that brought our tightknit team even closer. We were proud to display the presents and letters at our holiday party on December 18th and even gladder to mail them out a couple of days later so they’d get to the kids right on time.It’s part of our company DNA to band together for causes like this one, and we can’t wait to do it again.

    Aqua Expeditions “Teach a man to fish…”

    Our President & CEO, Todd Street, took his social responsibility global when he participated in a conservation mission by boat into the Peruvian Amazon. The goal of the trip was to create a positive social impact on several Amazon communities. Key areas of concern in the Amazon are healthcare access, environmental conservation, and protection of natural resources.

    A physican on board debriefed passengers about water contamination and the healthcare treatment desperately needed in local villages along the Amazon River. Volunteers helped form Community First Aid Centers in these villages as well as promote education by providing books and other resources to local schools.

    Likewise, naturalists educated both volunteers and villagers on environmental preservation and the need to sustain wildlife environments. Special attention was paid to the recent conservation and management efforts for the Taricaya turtle population, implemented to prevent the extinction of the endangered population. Prior to their services, turtle eggs were stolen and sold on the market, causing ecological damage to the community. A key takeaway was the lesson that keeping the environment plentiful with different species and wildlife yields more economics benefits to those villagers who can earn more from the sale of their handicrafts than the former. To support their interest in preserving these turtle eggs, the government now pays the local villagers for every egg they can preserve. On this expedition, six trays of Taricaya turtle nests were successfully transported from the Pacaya River basin to the town of Nauta where the species population can rise again.

    As a Chinese proverb expresses, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” The expedition left a mark on the community, providing them with a sustainable way to move the community forward in health care, education, and conservation, and it left a mark on those who volunteered, reminding them how even small actions can lead to immeasurable differences.

    Right to Play (www.righttoplay.com) is a nonprofit that uses sport and play to educate and empower children and youth to overcome the effects of poverty, conflict, and disease in disadvantaged communities. The UN recognizes play as the right of every child. Play is NOT a luxury; it is a tool for education and health. It can bring entire communities together and inspire every individual. A game of football can teach children about tolerance and peace, and a game of tag can teach about malaria. Play helps teach important life lessons and develop skills like cooperation, leadership, and teamwork.

    Production Coordinator, Caitlin Halle volunteered for Right to Play at their bi-annual Gala. It was a wonderful experience to learn more about the organization, meet the Olympic athletes that donate their time, and see the generosity of people who donated to the amazing cause.

    It is an amazing place for children and adults to interact with each other, providing a productive environment for families to come together and watch their children grow both mentally and physically. It is a heartwarming and inspiring experience to watch both the participants and volunteers at this center and see what they are accomplishing.

    The programs available at the Reece Center are currently restricted to their outdoor facilities, which limits the activities during inclement weather. To this end, toddstreet was honored to create a video the Center could submit for a contest being held by Pepsi. The winner would receive a substantial donation.

    sunrisecamp1_socialresponsibilitySunrise Day Camp, for children ages 3-16, is the only dedicated day camp in the nation for children with cancer. It is a camp designed to meet the emotional, social, recreational and physical needs of these children, while allowing them to enjoy the comforts and safety of their own homes at night. Children, and their siblings, are invited to attend the camp free of charge. Senior Account Director, Michael Korn volunteered at the camp, not long ago.

    sunrisecamp2_socialresponsibility“Thank you Michael Korn, and the incredible “Red Army” for turning an incredibly hot day into a remarkably fun day for the kids! Your encouragement, smiles and cheers were infectious and the kids enjoyed every minute you were there. You guys were so “cool” ….and not just because you were in charge of the water spritzers! Thank you for giving up a part of your Friday to spend some time with our special kids! “
    With gratitude,
