New York may no longer be a swing state (it once was! seriously! Benjamin Harrison would never have won in 1888 without it!), but New Yorkers can still influence the upcoming election with their wallets. On Sunday, Little Zelda hosted a fundraiser that added some local fun and flavor to a national campaign that many of us follow from our various screens. It seems obvious, but it was genuinely enjoyable to actually talk to people and make donations together.
For those who missed out last Sunday, never fear - there's another fundraiser this coming Sunday at The Candy Rush. For a $10 on-site donation, you'll receive a free small scoop of ice cream (this ought to bring out the youth vote). They'll also have live music and cupcakes from BCakeNY on hand. Mark your calendar!
