Stacey is a "Friend of Baby Buggy," which means she plays an active role in supporting the organization, assisting with fund-raising events and spreading the word about their good work. At the end of each season, Pink Chicken donates excess inventory to Baby Buggy, which is then distributed, along with diapers, toiletries, other children's clothing and baby gear, to over 5,000 children across the country each month. These children are part of families that seek support from domestic violence shelters, anti-poverty programs, educational programs and refugee resettlement program.

Each year, we host a bake sale at our Amagansett store to benefit Cookies for Kids Cancer (cookiesforkidscancer.org), an organization founded by Gretchen and Larry Witt to support pediatric cancer research. Our good friend Michelle Jassem helps us coordinate this annual event, and it's the perfect way to raise money, involve our kids, and help them learn that working hard for a cause you believe can feel (and taste) so great. Ten percent of the sales of Luna Leggings will be donated to Cookies this season.
