Timely nuggets of information and ideas we want to share with you.

Breaking Big is a documentary series co-produced by PBS and OZY Media about successful artists and celebrities that premiered last month, June, 2018. It takes each celebrity – artists, athletes, innovators and leaders – and examines how and why they made it big. What makes some people successful and not others? What were the unexpected events in the lives of those who made it? It is hosted by Carlos Watson and there are 12 thirty minute episodes planned.  I have loved the episodes I’ve seen and I’m already hoping there will be a second season.

The Boon Supply Co. was launched in May by Lily Kanter of Serena and Lily home furnishings company. It sells attractive home goods for everyday use.  Everything in the catalog has great style. She donates 50% of all shopping proceeds to the charity of your choice. Search for an existing ‘fundraiser’ or start one of your own with the not-for-profit of your choice. The non-profit you select will receive its share within two days of the fundraising campaign ending. You can use Boon Supply as a platform to launch a fundraiser for a worthy cause you wish to support.
