About Hearts of Gold:
Hearts of Gold (HoG) was founded in 1996 by Deborah Koenigsberger, a former model and a fashion industry stylist who owns a successful women’s clothing boutique, Noir et Blanc… Bis, established in 1989 in Manhattan’s Chelsea district. Her caring nature was touched by the struggles of homeless women in her neighborhood, so in 1996 she founded HoG, a not-for-profit organization that exists to improve the lives of New York City’s homeless mothers and their children. HoG has raised more than $1.6 million in support of city shelters including Icahn House East, LLC; Nazareth Housing; and the former Alexander Abraham Residence. In 2008, HoG adopted a new shelter, Semiperm HDFC. In 2009, founder Koenigsberger was named a Smart Cookie Awards honoree by Condé Nast’s Cookie magazine. The organization has attracted the support of such luminaries as Emme, Bobbi Brown, Kirsten Dunst, Edie Falco, Marcia Gay Harden, Hoda Kotb, Laura Linney, Soledad O’Brien, Susan Sarandon, Ivana Trump, Tamara Tunie, Vanessa L. Williams, and Stevie Wonder. HoG is a 501(c)(3) organization. For more information on how you can help, visit www.heartsofgold.org
