We 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!
In a time where we were grieving and financially hurting after a major death in the family, Scary Mommy came to the rescue. We were able to have an amazing Thanksgiving thanks to them. We will be forever grateful for the generosity of the community.
