Besa hosts diaper drive to benefit Columbus families

Columbus community organization Besa is encouraging the city to do some good this fall by donating to its diaper drive, Pamper the Pantries. Besa has a goal of collecting 10,000 diapers by Oct. 3 for those in need—the drive benefits the Columbus Diaper Bank (read about the organization started by Mikey’s Late Night Slice owner Mikey Sorboro here, from the July/August issue of Capital Style), Columbus Diaper Coalition and Diaper Connection. Matt Goldstein, Besa’s executive director, shares how easy it is to donate to the cause: Either bring diapers to one of the three Candle Lab locations (Grandview, Worthington or Short North), or purchase diapers via Besa’s Amazon wish list. Diapers bought through the list are shipped directly to Besa, making it easy to support those in need with the click of a button.

Unfamiliar with Besa? Launched in 2012, Besa helps engage the Columbus community and encourages giving back. “It’s the idea of coming together to support those who need it,” Goldstein says. “How can we make volunteering more top of mind?” Besa’s website features a portal where volunteers can sign up for various opportunities around the city.

Ladies, there’s a new celebrity collection launching today at Macy’s, and it’s perfect if you need to outfit your man for fall or add some of the 10 essential wardrobe staples to his closet. Television and radio personality Ryan Seacrest is adding to his resume with Ryan Seacrest Distinction, a brand that features suits, shirts and accessories (think ties and belts).

“Ryan’s wardrobe is always impeccably styled,” said Durand Guion, Macy’s vice president and men’s fashion director in a press release. “Ryan Seacrest Distinction offers Macy’s customers exquisitely designed clothing and brings a modern edge to timeless designs, all at approachable price points.”

And Seacrest is making it easy for guys to look sharp—each piece in the collection is labeled and assigned with a color group so the suiting separates can be seamlessly paired together. The pieces fall into four different color groups: black, grey, blue and brown. Ryan Seacrest Distinction, which starts at $29.50 for accessories, $69.50 for shirts and $400 for suit jacket, is available online and at the Easton and Polaris Macy’s stores (two of only three Ohio Macy’s stores to carry the line). To learn more or to shop the collection, visit Macys.com. –Heather Weekley, @heather_weekley
