Support The Cause and Have A Chance To Win $25 To Curious Iguana Independent Bookstore or Dancing Bear Toys and Gifts!
The Literacy Council of Frederick County, in partnership with The Curious Iguana kicked off a holiday book drive to benefit Head Start of Frederick County. Starting today, when you donate a new children’s book to support the cause, FiND iT FREDERiCK will enter you into our contest. Here’s How!
Take a Selfie! When you donate a children’s book take a picture of yourself in the act and post it in the comment section of our Facebook post! Then we will enter you to win a gift certificate to Curious Iguana or Dancing Bear. If you win, you can choose which gift certificate you want! The contest ends Wednesday, November 26th! Three winners will be announced on Black Friday! You can pick up your gift certificate anytime.
Visit the Curious Iguana (12 N. Market Street) or your neighborhood bookstore and purchase a new book for a child (boy or girl, ages 3-4 years old) and drop the book off at the Literacy Council or the Curious Iguana.
If you’d like a suggestion on the child’s interests, you can pick up a tag at either location and return it with the book. Just prior to the Christmas holiday, the books will be distributed to the children. The drive is hoping to collect at least 250 books.
This is a quick and easy way to “give back” as well as make a difference in the lives of children and their future. A love of reading and the ability to read are keys to future success for these children and all children. The drive runs through December 15th.
Questions may be directed to 301-600-2066 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Books may be dropped off at the Curious Iguana (12 N. Market St.) or at the Literacy Council Office between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday (110 E. Patrick Street).

The Frederick Basket Company kicks off its first annual Project Night Night benefit to help give the gift of comfort to children in area shelters. Now until January 9th, shoppers can donate money at The Frederick Basket Company, participating shops in Everedy Square and Shab Row, and online to assist in purchasing Night Night Packages for homeless kids.
Every $20.00 earned, purchases one Night Night Package consisting of a tote bag filled with a new security blanket, age appropriate children’s book and a stuffed animal. A charitable organization, Project Night Night donates over 25,000 Night Night Packages each year to homeless children nationwide. Recognizing the need right here in Frederick County, Vicki Moore, the owner of The Frederick Basket Company jumped onboard.
“This cause is near and dear to my heart. I remember when my kids were young and what their security items meant to them. I have a 23 year old that still loves her blanket,” said Vicki Moore, Owner of The Frederick Basket Company. “Receiving a Night Night Package when faced with a scary situation can be a saving grace.”
The merchants operating in Everedy Square and Shab Row have come together to support this cause and will be accepting donations. Participating shops include:
According to Project Night Night, these packages help to reduce trauma and advance the emotional and cognitive well-being of children. Based on this, totes will also be donated to the Frederick Memorial Hospital’s pediatric unit to comfort children when receiving medical attention, other Frederick-area programs are:

Daisy’s of Daisy’s Salon & Body Boutique Wields Her Magic.
There have been many days I’ve asked myself “What am I going to do with my out of control hair?!?” Hoping a magic product would instantly smooth my frizz and I would run out of the door with beautifully controlled tresses. Obviously, it hadn’t happened until this week when I received my very first keratin treatment at Daisy’s Salon & Body Boutique!
Don’t get me wrong, I love my unruly hair but there’s nothing wrong with mixing it up now and then. Especially since I was rocking the Wilma Flintstone bun to save time in the mornings. I think Wilma even put more attention into her “do”.
If you’ve never had or heard of a keratin treatment, keratin is a protein naturally found in your hair. Keratin treatments create straight, smooth hair and are the newest trend in defrizzing and smoothing all hair textures from curly to chemically treated (perms/relaxers).
I won’t just define it for you, I’m going to take you through the transformation:
Step 1: In my case, unleash hair from its tamed bun
Step 2: Wash & Blow Dry
Step 3: Apply Keratin Treatment
Step 4: Rinse, Blow Dry & Flat Iron
My hair turned out beautifully. Oh, but Daisy’s vision wasn’t complete! After the keratin treatment, she proceeded to cut & style, wax my eyebrows and apply make-up. The result, made this mom of two toddlers feel relaxed and glamorous! If you have kids then you know that those two feelings are near impossible to achieve at the same time.
The result……drum roll, please:
