Mr. Mickey' Checks Out HSN's New Charitable Christmas Ornaments
A few nights ago, HSN -- the suddenly hip and happening Home Shopping Channel -- hosted a Christmas ornament sale benefitting St. Jude's Children's Hospital, a charity run by enduringly chic TV legend Marlo Thomas. HSN had many of their partners and celebrity pals design adorable holiday ornaments which will be available for purchase on HSN's site beginning October 20th. That's Wednesday! All the profits go to the hospital, which treats children with cancer regardless of their ability to pay. Ornament designers ranged from Sarah Jessica Parker and Gwen Stefani to Jonathan Adler and makeup guru Adrien Arpel. The whole shebang is the brainchild of Mindy Grossman, the visionary leader of HSN for the past four years who has helped give the channel it's youthful new makeover. You all know Mr. Mickey is a home-shopping lover, so it was a thrill to see such HSN superstars as Diane Gilman, who makes amaaaaazing sparkle tops and animal print separates. Here's hoping to my dream of one day doing a line of sparkle fashions for HSN coming true. In the meantime, however, please partake in two of my favorite past times -- shopping and making charitable donations -- and log on to HSN.com to buy a bunch of holiday ornaments for a great cause!
