THE STORY:

Join us at on of our stands at The Highland Park Village, during the following times:

We are selling Mistletoe jusy one more day!!!

December 24: 11am  till 1 pm this Saturday!  Last chance Mistletoe!
headquarters: Royal Blue Grocery

It started in 2012, Stella feared the worst for New York City when Hurricane Sandy hit. She felt helpless watching the news and asked, "What can a KID do to help?!"

Her answer: cut down mistletoe, decorate it with bows and bells and sell it in the front yard. Her first stand sold out in thirty minutes. "Mistletoe is PURE PROFIT!", she overheard someone say and indeed it was. By the time Christmas rolled around, Stella had raised $2,034 and had a check for the American Red Cross headquarters in New York City. After delivering the check in person, Stella learned first hand how the Red Cross disaster relief teams help people in need. She was invited to Brooklyn, meeting fire fighters who had saved entire neighborhoods, while their own homes succumbed to Hurricane Sandy. They thanked a kid for helping.

All year long, when people asked Stella about her plans for 2013, her plan stayed true. She wanted to raise more funds. How? EASY, Stella enlisted a team of the most clever and talented friends from school. She envisioned that some kids would make signs, some would sell mistletoe at stands and others would help spread the word that kids can help others. So, in 2013 a BAND of BUDDIES donned red hats and SOLD, SOLD, SOLD mistletoe raising an astonishing $8,421.

One friend in particular, Quinn, really got involved in the fund raising. Together with Stella, they decided that this year, a team of TWO might accomplish more good, and indeed they did. 2014 exceeded all hopes and dreams reaping over $18,000 and FEEDING over 54,000 people.

The dynamic duo struck again in 2015, when their efforts brought even more success! The kids in the RED HATS raised $39,155.86 producing over 117,000 meals with the help of the North Texas Food Bank. MATCHING funds with retailers, Forty Five Ten and Shinola, as well as Highland Park Village last year, allowed the kids to tell people that $1 fed 6 people.

‘Tis the season again and Stella and Quinn are elated to be back selling MISTLEOE in December with GREAT PURPOSE. COME SEE the kids this DECEMBER! Or JOIN in the Kiss-and-Tella challenge! Help Stella, Quinn and friends reach their GOAL to feed even more people with the help of the North Texas Food Bank.
