SPARE is a smartphone application that allows New Yorkers to round up their dine out bills to the nearest dollar to support local hunger relief efforts. Just $0.99 can help feed 4 New Yorkers through our beneficiary organizations – Food Bank For New York City, City Harvest, City Meals on Wheels & New York City Rescue Mission. Users can round up anywhere, but users who round up at partner locations receive rewards for giving to those in need – free drinks, food, and $ discounts. Our goal is to inspire New York City to close it’s own meal gap. Currently, there are 235 million missing meals throughout the 5 boroughs each year. It might seem like a tall order to bridge this meal gap, but simple math tells us that if 10% of New Yorkers each round up for a total of $6.00 a month, we can close the meal gap in one single year. New York can close it’s own meal gap and create history – with a minimal contribution from its residents!

Nubian Hair Studio owned and operated by Natural Hair Expert Mrs. Alice Weise-Goode, has been a staple in garnishing industry attention. On April 27th 2014, Nubian Hair Studio and Thatsacurl joined forces to introduce ROCKLAND’S OWN HAIR AND BODY SYMPOSIUM with special guest, hysterically funny actress and comedienne Kim Coles. The event was so successful that it landed Weise-Goode in the national publication, Hip Hop Weekly.

Michelle, R&B Songstress Keyshia Coles, Television’s “The Real” star Tamar Braxton and more.

She starts off by explaining that natural hair is in high demand and she likes to display the flexibility of the Nubian Twist. Throughout the article, the very detailed Weise-Goode takes readers through the process of shampooing and conditioning. She goes on to explain about applying what is known as “The Marley Hair.” The article showcases the final look, which was done by Nubian Hair Studio’s stylist “Aida.” The article can be found on page 122; Braider’s Corner, “Our Roots” in Sophisticate’s Black Hair Magazine.
