Partnership with CHALK
Our "Buy a Bundle, Give a Bundle" initiative is still going strong, and we're excited to announce our partnership with CHALK (Choosing Healthy & Active Lifestyles for Kids). We're proud to support CHALK's mission of reducing the rates of childhood obesity in the Washington Heights & Inwood areas of New York City. CHALK aims to reach children in all aspects of their lives -- in the community, in schools and when they visit their pediatrician in their outpatient clinics. For every WOYP? DVD, book and stuffed toy onion bundle we sell through our store, a bundle will be donated to CHALK and will help children and families that likely wouldn't have access our educational and health promoting materials. What are you waiting for? Buy a bundle so we can give a bundle to CHALK today!
