To a tea

If you love getting creative with your tea — fall’s the perfect time to start adding cinnamon sticks, by the way — consider creating your own signature blend for Numi Organic Tea. Using ingredients in its Artisan’s Tea Blending Kit, whip up your own concoction and it might become the brand’s newest offering. The winner also gets a trip to San Francisco and a private tea tasting at Numi’s headquarters. Enter through Jan. 14; full terms and conditions are at www.numitea.com.

Give your old coat a new life

Donate your old coat to activewear brand Lole’s Yellow Label Program, which is inspecting, washing and repackaging pre-worn jackets and then selling them for $40. All proceeds are going to Ample Harvest, which donates farmers’ surplus produce to the needy. Learn more at www.lolewomen.com/yellowlabel.

Exercise, fight cancer two ways

Your next workout can help slash your risk of breast cancer, and prevent the disease in others. All proceeds from this weekend’s F*** Cancer fundraiser at ChaiseFitness will go to the charity, which supports efforts for early detection (90 percent of breast cancer is curable in Stage 1!). Take a class for $35 or sponsor a class (match the profits made) to help the cause. Get details at www.chaisefitness.com.

Food & Wine and Flywheel

The Food & Wine Festival is back in town this week, and if you plan on eating your face off (like us), you’ll probably want to burn off some of those extra cals. Enter Flywheel, which with pro chefs Todd English and Josh Capon is hosting a special ride Saturday at 3 p.m. to benefit the Food Bank for New York City. Reserve your spot at www.flywheelsports.com.
