EVERYWHERE—The designers behind the accessories brand Heart Factory created exclusive charms for Scoop NYC to help benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy. 100% of the profits from the handmade charms, which come in soft patent, fine Italian, and calfskin leather, will be donated to the American Red Cross.
