Blog Love: ‘Tis the season

22 Dec

A blogger we love, Jenny, or better known as the The Bloggess rocked our little socks off this past week.

Jenny posted about how she would give a $30 dollar gift card to the first 30 people to comment on her post about how they weren’t sure they were going to be able to give their kiddos a Christmas.  Awesome as a gesture by itself, but it turned out that Jenny and her loyal readers gave so much more to so many more just by using these here internets!

“Over 900 gift cards were sent out by 689 people who were so thrilled to help.  450 people who needed small Christmas miracles received donations for medicine, food, or presents under the tree for their children.  No large corporations got involved.  No one only offered to donate if they got something out of it themselves.  With no sponsorships, no ulterior motives and with only a simple need to reach out and help a perfect stranger, 689 everyday, normal people (Jewish, Christians, Atheists, Muslims and more) sent out over $40,000 worth of donations to make sure Christmas came.” –Jenny

Chills. And my chunky monkey, pregnant ass tears up every time I think of that sort of kindness.  You know what, I can’t do this justice. Just go read it yourself!  It’s amazing and maybe what you are needing today to get in the spirit.

Kudos, Jenny, and your readers!
