Yesterday, two schools in Harlem and CitySights NY welcomed American Idol runner up Crystal Bowersox to their first ever city-wide toy drive event, "Holiday Joy" Toy Drive. Bowersox sang a selection of her favorite holiday tunes as well as songs from her brand new album, "Farmer's Daughter," in front of a CitySights NY iconic double-decker buses. 

Bowersox was joined by "Real Housewives of NY" star Kelly Bensimon, reality star Danielle Staub, Miss USA® Rima Fakih, The Radio City Rockettes®,  E! Spin Crowd star Jonathan Cheban, TBS'  Are We There Yet? star Teala Dunn,  and Yogi Bear and BooBoo in the toy delivery efforts. The stars hand delivered toys to NYC's children in need represented by Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.), a charity that has been helping provide new toys and other essential products to underprivileged and disaster-struck children for 25 years, and The Children's Aid Society, filling the gaps between what children have and what they need to thrive since 1853.
