With the announcement by Mayor Cory Booker that he will be running for Senate in New Jersey, we were reminded of a wonderful event we ran with the Mayor in the city that remains very close to his heart, Newark.

On December 21st 2011, Kars 4 Kids and Mayor Booker joined forces to distribute close to 1,000 children’s coats for free to needy citizens.

We reached out to the Mayor via Twitter, a social networking platform he is well known on. As one of the most active politicians on Twitter, he has been a trailblazer for the use of social networking to allow citizens easy access to city officials.

In his humble way he was quick to respond and set us up with a location. He then was gracious enough to attend the event and stayed a while to distribute coats personally.

It was an amazing day all around! Check out these cool pics.

Amazing memories of a wonderful day!
