Take a tour of the TJ Maxx Teen Choice Gifting lounge where we asked celebs to sign these incredible reusable totes to auction off on eBay to raise funds for Save the Children. Did you know that 1 in 5 children in the US live in poverty?
We were able to chit chat with all the celebs to find out their back to school memories and get their take on the latest fashion trends for this season as they signed bags too. Very cool!
TJ Maxx donated $100 per bag that every celeb signed to Save the Children. This money will help buy school supplies and $100 can even buy snacks for 1 child for 1 year.
The moms and the kids were excited to make an impact and sign the bags. We loved hearing the stories the celebrity moms shared about their favorite memories and what fashions their kids are digging lately as we mingled.
Kellie Martin says her 3 yr old daughter is crazy for Hello Kitty and that trend seemed to be repeated all day by many of the tween and teen girl stars that shared their faves and must haves for the season. The girls were also keen on the razzle dazzle as you know the sparkles, gems, and embellisments are still hot. Along with the jeggings for girls. They are too cute.
And layers are hot for both boys & girls this season as evidenced by what everyone was wearing to the event too.
I loved meeting the young actor who played Jacob in Lost. Isn’t he adorable? He was so polite and sweet. He also brought his little sister along with him and held her hand throughout the event and tour. As for his fashion sense – he was wearing awesome looking sneakers that were totally shiny silver. Very hip.
Thanks to TJ Maxx for supporting Save the Children and letting us help spread their efforts. You can get involved by buying one of these totes at your local stores for only 99 cents. And 100 % of profits will be donated to Save the Children. Isn’t that fabulous?
