Instead of tips, Jessy, owner of Jessy's Pastries, asks her customers to make donations to support individuals with Down syndrome. She is inspired by her son Brandon, who tragically passed away at age 2. Each year she contributes to GiGi's Playhouse NYC, a one of a kind Achievement Center where individuals with Down syndrome receive the support they need through free educational, recreational, and social programs. Your contributions to Brandon's Virtual Tip Jar will support a vibrant community and give individuals with Down syndrome the opportunity to define and reach their potential.
