Everytown for Gun Safety

We are now Everytown for Gun Safety. If you’d like to unsubscribe, you can click here.

I decided years ago that I wouldn’t just wring my hands about gun violence.

The fact that 86 people are killed with guns every single day in this country cannot be something we just lament. We have to do something about it.

You’re receiving this email because I know you agree that there’s so much more we can do to reduce gun violence and keep our families and communities safe.

That’s why Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America are combining forces to launch our most ambitious effort yet: Everytown for Gun Safety.

Please take a minute right now to watch the first Everytown for Gun Safety video and share it with your friends and family. It’s the first in a series of videos we’re rolling out in the weeks and months ahead to highlight key gun violence issues.

Everytown is building a movement of everyday people — moms, teachers, survivors, gun owners, mayors, faith leaders, police chiefs and others — to organize in our communities and play a growing role in local, state and federal elections.

No one has done this before — and certainly not on the scale we have planned.


For too long, Congress has refused to enact basic measures that would help keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people.

We’ll continue to fight hard on Capitol Hill, but it’s time to expand our strategy and hold candidates at all levels of office accountable to the people who elect them. And that means we need a grassroots movement that will fight for a future free from gun violence — in every town across America.

Thank you for being part of this movement.

Mike Bloomberg
Everytown for Gun Safety


Everytown for Gun Safety is a movement of Americans fighting for common-sense gun policies. We are moms, mayors, survivors, and concerned citizens.

We depend on contributions from supporters like you to fund our important work to reduce gun violence.

Local Mom is an expert on Rodan + Fields skin care

When I worked at Aveda, Estee Lauder had just bought Rodan + Fields skin care company. The buzz was amazing and quite different than for other trendy brands which were forming at the time. Fast forward and my former UWS neighbor, Michele Gold, has been telling me about how the company has evolved.

Have you heard about Rodan + Fields skin care? Their tag line is “changing skin changing lives”. Created by dermatologists Drs Rodan and Fields, these doctors are doing for anti-aging what they did for acne – they’re the same doctors that created ProActiv. And just like with ProActiv when the doctors challenged traditional distribution by selling via informercials back in the 90’s, now the doctors are trail blazing again. They pulled their best-selling line from the stores (#1 at Nordstrom), to go the direct-selling route. They have put their products that are coveted by beauty editors everywhere into the hands of their consultants across the country. Michele sent me an email inviting me to one of her events and I was impressed with what she wrote to I wanted to pass it along – both to help her and my former company!

“Rodan + Fields have created multi-med regimens that combine over the counter active ingredients that when used together in the prescribed order, have clinically proven amazing results. The four core regimens tackle wrinkles, sun damage, acne and sensitive skin. And combined with their two at-home tools – the Macro Exfoliator and the Today show best beauty product of 2011 – the AMP MD Roller, you can skip most visits to the dermatologist – buh-bye Botox! How are the doctors “changing lives”? The direct selling distribution channel is allowing thousands of men and women to have their own companies, while capitalizing on the global brand of the doctors. In 5 years, the company is on its way to being a billion dollar company with no signs of slowing down.

There are two ways to become involved with Rodan + Fields – as a product user and as a consultant. EVERYTHING comes with a 60-day empty bottle guarantee. These doctors stand behind their products! Try ‘em out and if you don’t like them you can send them back. Not sure what would be for you? Answer these simple questions, to find out what would be custom recommended for your skin type and skin concerns: https://faceglow.myrandf.com/Pages/OurProducts/GetAdvice/SolutionsTool

If you’d like to find out more about becoming a consultant, meet the upper west side team every other Friday from 8:45am – 9:45 am at Aroma bar 161 W. 72nd St. Or if you can’t make it to Aroma, feel free to contact Michele Gold at faceglows1.

PS 452 – Mentalism Show featuring Sam Eaton

Let’s support our local school fundraisers. I always love the Spring since a) no more freezing weather and bundling up the kids AND
b) all the great fairs and events at the local schools! (send me your school’s info if you don’t see it posted here yet!)

Don’t miss the PS 452 Magic & Mentalism Show featuring Sam Eaton (who has his own award-winning off-bway magic show called The Quantum Eye).

Sunday, May 18th at 2pm at the PS 452 auditorium at 100 West 77th Street, between Amsterdam & Columbus. Tickets purchased in advance are Adult: $20 and Child: $15 and can be purchased at www.ps452.org beginning Monday (prices increase if purchased the day of the performance). And Sam Eaton is an incredible performer. It’s not only magic, a lot of his act centers around really creative mind reading tricks which I think the kids are going to love. Parents can get a sneak peak into some of his tricks on his website www.thequantumeye.com. The show is best targeted to kids 5-10+ and their families. It would probably be too mature for kids in nursery school.

Joanie Leeds sent this email around to people (like me) who adore her and want to support her ongoing career.

We were so lucky that she came to the JCC nursery school this Wed. to sing with Liza and the other kids. Liza was singing Joanie’s Ice Cream song all afternoon.  Joanie travels around the world entertaining families and inspiring creative imaginations.  She is so talented!  Imagine, if we all make a small (or large) donation to Joanie, what the next big, stuck in your head tune will be!  Move over “Let it Go”… here comes Joanie’s latest song! Pass this along to your friends, please.

Joanie Leeds & The Nightlights is a multi-award winning kids rock band from Brooklyn and they are working on their 6th album ‘Good Egg’, perfect for kids 2-10! I have supported their Kickstarter Campaign and you should too! There are only 4 days left to pre-order and get some awesome prizes. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/joanieleeds/good-egg-joanie-leeds-rocks-her-6th-kids-cd/dashboard

They are getting closer to their goal of $20K but they still need a major push. It’s an all or nothing campaign so they only get the funding if they meet their 20K goal, otherwise it all gets refunded. They are offering very unique packages like VIP experience to Symphony Space and their Madison Square Kids CD Release, sponsoring a box of CDs or a rocking’ concert to a school, hospital, temple or church…. t-shirts and all other sorts of goodies if you pre-order the CD in the next 5 days!

**If every one of you could pass this on to 10-20 friends via email who have kids, we would be sure to meet our goal. Thanks for your help and support!
