12 20 12 019The Brooklyn Nets might be the new kids on the block, but they are out to make a wonderful first impression. With the help of Cookie’s Kids, The Brooklyn Nets invited some children who where effected by hurricane/ super storm/ destroyer of good Sandy to a special shopping spree. This event was thrown by The Brooklyn Nets Foundation.

This event took place at the Brooklyn Cookie’s Kids on Fulton Ave and involved quite a few of the Nets- I suspect all of them- including their mascot. Honestly, there were so many families there, I couldn’t tell you if we saw all of them, but we did see quite a few and even got some nice shots with two of the fine gentlemen, as well as their zany mascot.

The kids involved had a great time picking from the clothes and toys available at Cookie’s Kids. Each child received $250 to spend, 5 kids per Net player. The kids were able to pick from the plethora of toys and clothing to help replace what they lost. It also helps mom and dad deal with the stress and anguish associated with the horrific storm which left much of New Jersey and New York crippled, but slowly coming back with the help of their friends. It seems like everyone is pulling together for this one, from The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen et all, to the Nets and Cookie’s Kids.
