Today’s the day! I’m now 39 years old. I hope you didn’t get me a present, because all I really want is to raise $20,000 for pediatric cancer research. If you donate you could even win a spot for you and a guest on a special Gypsy Spirit cruise on June 7, or 4 tickets to take a Windy City Films Tour! Read more here
After you’ve made your donation, pop on over to Target’s pop-up store. They’ve taken over the former Freedom Museum space with a Bullseye Bazaar, offering a selection of their exlusive and affordable lines. Then cross the river and take one of the Chicago Architecture Foundation‘s river cruises. They’re fun and you get to learn about this fantastic city! Clean up the river Saturday with Chicago River Day. Sign up to spruce up one of several sites, then celebrate afterwards at the festival. Many of the sites are filled, but some are still open.
Go through the woods to the Green City Market (it actually is in a grove of trees). The sustainable market is back outside in Lincoln Park. While you’re being kind to Mother Earth, cycle over to Soldier Field for Climate Cycle day. You can ride your bike up and down the shores of Lake Michigan, then listen to live music and browse green companies.
You should always be kind to your mother, but Sunday in particular! Find a special spot to take mom on our Mother’s Day page.
Have a great weekend!
