Great Finds: The TomKat Studio Shop (& Giveaway)

By: Amy Atlas, in Great Finds, Swag
One of the things I love to do during the summer is have picnics with my boys in Central Park.

Since we’re in picnic season, we thought we’d give you a reason to ooze right into this manic Monday with a fantastic summer giveaway.  Our good friend, Kim from The…

They were shocked to learn that the main reason over 25% of kids diagnosed with cancer do not survive is because of a lack of effective therapies. And the reason for the lack of effective therapies was simple: lack of funding. ??Cookies…
