Cheer NY Hasn't WRAPPED Up Their Season Yet!

That's right folks! Cheer New York is still hard at work wrapping all of your 2012 gifts at the Union Square Barnes & Noble! We will be there open to close through Christmas Eve (Monday night)!

As you can see, our little elves have been keeping busy taking care of all of your gift wrapping needs. All of your generous donations that we've received so far are making a HUGE impact on our two Cheer For Life charities, Art Start and the Bronx Aids Services (BAS).

Be sure to please your favorite book worm or that movie goer in your life, with a gift from Barnes & Noble. There's still plenty of time to get in all of your holiday shopping! If nothing else, we'd love to have you stop by and say hello!

From all of us at Cheer New York, we want to wish you the happiest of holidays and a healthy New Year!

Cheer NY Is Wrapping Your Holiday Gifts!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! Every Thursday through Sunday from now until December 23rd and on Christmas Eve Dec 24th, Cheer New York will be spreading holiday Spirit and good Cheer at the Union Square Barnes & Noble by wrapping your books and purchases for donations. Your donations will go to increase our Cheer for Life fund that will benefit TWO small local charities needing your help.

Art Start: The purpose of Art Start is to nurture the voices, hearts and minds of at-risk youth through creative arts workshops conducted daily inside homeless shelters and alternative to incarceration programs throughout New York City.

Bronx AIDS Services (BAS): Founded in 1986, Bronx AIDS Services is a not-for-profit community-based organization that helps more than 8,000 Bronx residents each year with services and programs that touch people who are living with HIV/AIDS, people who think they might have been exposed to HIV, and those who are at high risk of exposure to the virus.

So check out what dates the cheerleaders will be wrapping and come say "HI" and get your holiday shopping done. On the way out, get your gifts wrapped and don't forget to dig deep into your pockets and give the cheerleaders a $5, $20, or $100 dollar bill.

Your generous donations will help others in need!

What Is Cheer For Life?

This is the season of giving, and that is exactly what Cheer New York is all about. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle and forget what the meaning of the holiday spirit is all about. But don’t worry, stick with Cheer NY and we can help you figure out the best charity to donate to on behalf of your boss (wink! wink!)… us!

Cheer New York’s mission is to make the world a little bit better by raising money through our Cheer For Life fund and giving the money we raise to small local charities in New York City that support the fight on aids, life-challenging illnesses and conditions. Every year, we pick a new local charity to support, but because of our growing fans and increased number of members, this year we decided to choose two charities! The money that we raise this holiday season and in the upcoming year will be split equally between the two charities our Cheer For Life fund will be supporting: Bronx Aid Services and Art Start.

The first charity that we've chosen is The Bronx Aid Services (BAS). Its mission is to help adolescents and adults in the Bronx area that are HIV positive or at risk who lack the means and resources they need in their daily lives. BAS was started in 1986 and helps over 8,000 people living in the Bronx by offering them counseling, legal aid, and medical services.

The second charity that Cheer NY chose to support is Art Start. Every night 17,000 children spend the night on the streets or in a homeless shelter. The purpose of Art Start is to nurture these 17,000 children through daily creative art projects conducted at homeless shelters. Founded in 1991, Art Start helps transform and educate young lives through music, art, and other creative arts.

So, if you’re having trouble with the perfect gift for that special someone, donate to our Cheer for Life Fund on behalf of them and help out one of the 17,000 young children through Art Start or a Bronx resident affected by HIV. We will be gift-wrapping Thursday through Sunday at the Barnes and Noble in Union Square where your donations will help support the two charities.

Everyone at Cheer New York wishes you and yours a happy holiday season!
