One more place for girls to yammer on…

9.11.11

Last Christmas thebloggess.com offered to help families in need buy toys. All she asked was that they leave a comment saying that they needed help providing gifts for their children, and she gave them a gift card to do so.

Her readers were so moved by this act of generosity that they started to volunteer to give gift cards as well. At the end of the project $42,000 were donated just because people wanted to help. You can read the story in her own (curse filled, yet hilarious) words here.

What does this have to do with 9/11? Not much.

I just felt better talking about a random act of kindness today instead of drawing more attention to the devastation that one group chose to cause out of hatred.
