Last night when I was online tweeting about the Presidential Debate. I came across Edward Norton’s (the actor) twitter page. His tweet said: “Trying to help Harlem Grown win $25K from Martha Stewart.” I inquired further and realized this was important information Mr. Norton tweeted out. I wanted to share too to help Harlem Grown.
This holiday season Martha Stewart is helping to give back by creating the Thanks for Giving Challenge. This is where charities that raise the most funds by November 25th as a part of the Challenge will receive additional cash contributions (as much as $25,000!) from Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. So go here to donate at least $26 from October 19 at 7:00 pm EST to November 27th at 11:59 pm EST and you will be automatically entered into the sweepstakes to Win a Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook and you’re helping Harlem Grown to win $25k.

Harlem Grown and its co-founder Tony Hillary received a huge write-up in The Huffington Post yesterday, Sept. 28. The article beautifully explains how Harlem Grown was born and what inspired Tony to start this non profit in Harlem. I highly recommend taking the time to read: A Tree Grows in Harlem by Alex Budman. It is so worth it! And after you are finished reading the article, watch this video below. It stars Roderick, an 11-year-old student from the Bronx, who takes part in Harlem Grown.
