Miracle Tie Day

On Wednesday, November 10, 2010, people across Maryland wore Miracle Ties as a sign of their support for the pediatric patients at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, Maryland’s largest pediatric hospital and state-designated pediatric trauma center. The Jos. A. Bank Clothiers’ Miracle Collection® is in stores now.

The Miracle Collection® is a line of distinguished men’s neckwear that ties together pediatric research and patient care with fashion by raising funds for Hopkins Children’s. Each year, pediatric patients are asked to draw one of their favorite things and submit their art for a chance to be a Miracle Tie designer. From dogs to dreidels and fish to football, this year’s collection speaks to all interests. 

 Miracle Ties® are available at Jos. A. Bank, Clothiers stores and online at www.Josbank.com.

Halloween Candy for Troops

This  year, make Halloween about more than just collecting or distributing candy for  kids to eat (or overeat!). Participate in Treats-4-Troops, a post-Halloween candy collection project by MoverMoms.  Donate any or all of it to US troops serving in Iraq , Afghanistan , and    Kuwait , and thereby:

    * TEACH kids about the joys of giving and sharing!

    * BRIGHTEN a soldier’s day!

    * GET the candy out of your house!

MoverMoms,  a Bethesda-based non-profit, will donate all candy to a West Virginia-based  non-profit that packs it in Christmas stockings for troops of all faiths.   Last year the candy that MoverMoms collected in DC,  Maryland and  Virginia filled over 11,000 stockings.
