“Pretty In Pink” Breast Cancer Awareness Photo Series

Nicole "Pretty in Pink" series for Breast Cancer AwarenessLooking for girls to be part of a Breast Cancer Awareness photo shoot. I have done a BCA series like this in the past with a lot of participation. It was called “Pretty in Pink” (you can view my previous shoot on my website). For this October, I have a similar idea but with a twist, I will be incorporating body paint into this shoot. If there is enough participation, I plan on creating and selling a calendar and/or poster(s) with these images and donating the profits to a Breast Cancer Awareness foundation.

Please read carefully before replying: I am located in New Jersey and you should be too (unless you’re willing to travel for a free shoot for the cause). Girls will be topless, but body painted pink (pasties can be used if desired and breasts can be partially covered in photos). You need not be a model or aspiring model to participate and I am welcoming all shapes, sizes and ages over 18. This is not a “porn” shoot, it will be done in a tasteful manner with art and the cause taking precedence. There is no pay for this shoot, but you will be participating in a great cause, helping raise awareness and aiding in donations made (via the calendar/poster profits). I also will send you the edited photos.

If interested, please reply with a photo of yourself, age and location to my email address at jschroeck@jarosdesigns.com

Toys for Tots at Toyota of Manhattan Was A Great Success! Thank You!

Toys for Tots Jason Schroeck, Social Media & Web Manager, led the way for Toyota of Manhattan to be a collection center this year for Toys for Tots in hope that we can bring smiles to children’s faces that otherwise would be without. What we are also very excited about is, the local businesses that have helped out and have coordinated with us through pick-ups and drop-offs, means that there will be that many more children’s faces with smiles on them this holiday season! We want to thank our customers, employees, fan, friends and local businesses that have helped out and donated toys this year!

Jeanette Casimiro from  The Westin New York at Times Square contacted me in regards to an event they were having in mid-November. All the attendees were asked to bring a small toy to donate to Toys for Tots as part of their admission in to the event. Jeanette and I then coordinated a pick-up date and time and our boxes started filling up that much quicker with The Westin New York at Times Square’s help!

Toyota Holiday LuncheonJuliet Williams in the Philanthropy department at TMA (Toyota Motor North America) contacted me and discussed a Holiday Luncheon they were having in mid-December. We together forged a collaboration, with the Toy Drive in mind, which was quite the success!  Juliet invited me to the Holiday luncheon at TMA where I said a few words about mine and Toyota of Manhattan’s efforts with the Toys for Tots program and how very excited we were to be collaborating with TMA in this effort! We hope that this is the first of many to come! The Holiday Potluck Luncheon was great and I am thankful for the invitation. I met some great people and enjoyed some delicious food! TMA employees filled up a full box on their own in less than a 2 week span!

The Daily Show with John Stewart held a toy drive within their office among their staff and crew, saw that Toyota the-daily-show-toys-for-totsof Manhattan was a Toys for Tots drop off location and BJ Gunts dropped off a large box of toys at our dealership last week!

Marla from The Nestlé Account Team from Ogilvy Worldwide, New York called last week describing a fun way they collected toys for the Toys for Tots program. They held an inter-team “Secret Santa” style exchange, with the rule being to get a toy that you would have liked as a kid. They exchanged, shared their stories with each other and benefited a great cause all at the same time! Marla dropped off several bags into our boxes!

Joseph from Quality Transportation called and asked if we were still accepting the Toys for Tots donations. I said yes, and less than an hour later Joseph walked in to our showroom with several toys from the staff at Quality Transportation!

There will be that many more smiling faces this Holiday season thanks to everyone that donated and participated!

Toyota of Manhattan Supports Breast Cancer Awareness

nbcam_pink_ribbonDuring the month of October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month), Jason Schroeck led the way for Toyota of Manhattan to collect donations from their customers, employees, fans and friends. The total donations collected was $550 and then Toyota of Manhattan matched the amount to make a total of $1,200. We donated the amount to the Greater New York City Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. On Thursday, December 15, 2011 Tierre Simpson , Development Coordinator at the Greater New York City Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, stopped by Toyota of Manhattan to accept the total donation and say a few words.
