7 Moms Who Almost Went Without Thanksgiving Dinner

thanksgiving dinnerWe know her as "Scary Mommy." But blogger Jill Smokler is doing something that's about as far from scary as it gets. For the third year in a row, Smokler is hosting the Scary Mommy Thanksgiving Project, an online fundraiser that provides holiday dinners for families in need. As of tonight, the project has raised $125,675 and has adopted 2,280 families. Some 283 families have been waitlisted, so hopefully more donations will roll in. But these are just numbers. What's more inspiring is hearing what past recipients say about what this meant to them and their families.

You have until November 15 to contribute!

Thank you for this story. I immediately went and made a $50 donation to help feed a family for Thanksgiving. Without the story I would have never known about it. Perfect timing too, I just happened to have some extra money. I'm not a mom but I always find some of the most interesting stories on here so I always come back. Thanks again for this story!
