Over at Band Back Together we’re feeling like we want to junk punch the next person who asks us if we have a case of the Mondays. So instead of doing the time in the resulting anger management program, we decided to take Monday back. So we’re linking up our Dose of Happy posts and bringing the awesome back to Mondays.
The Bloggess and James Garfield (obvi) are going for the trifecta of Christmas miracles in order to get the pig (James Garfield, obvs) qualified for sainthood. Also to make people smile and feel loved even when in the middle of a horrendous catastrophe. I’ve been lucky enough to be in on this experience from the beginning, but I want to share the warm fuzzy high that comes with joining together to make the world brighter with everyone.
Project Night Night is an awesome program that distributes a night night bag with book, blanket and stuffed animal to homeless kids all over the US. Imagine how scary it feels to be a kid without a home, without any possessions to call your own. It costs only $20 for one complete package or you can put them together yourself (see guidelines here). This year, the Bloggess is trying to reach a goal of 1,000 packages for kids affected by Superstorm Sandy. She kicked off the awesome with a donation of 25 packages. I’m donating one this year because my pockets be smaller right now, but my mom’s group has a plan to work on a larger local donation after the holidays.
I know what the economy is like firsthand, y’all. I totally get not being in a position to give right now. But if you can’t give, can you spread the word? Tweet that shit, Pin it, FB it, Stumble Upon it, Reddit it. Every little bit helps. It all matters. Come on y’all, let’s all get high together.
