Hey everyone! How's your holiday season going? Got your fingers crossed for that obnoxiously pink cocktail ring? Maybe you're hinting 'til it hurts for those must-have heels? ...or maybe all you want for Christmahanakwanzika is to be able to pay the rent. Buy propane to heat your home. Feed your children.
We sometimes forget that there are people all around us who aren't doing so hot. Who have lost their jobs or can't find jobs, who are struggling to keep it together each and every day or who have responsibilities that would make the Average Jo collapse into her scuffed Nine West heels (duh, Average Jo doesn't own Louboutins.)
Our favorite drunken-hippie-asian-Suri-and-Britney-lovin' mom, Modg, has set up Operation WANA on her blog. We could go into how and why, but we'd rather focus on WHAT...and have you join in. Basically, check out the comments, find someone who's in need, and help that person. Yeah, we know, you don't have any extra cash - but check anyway. Maybe you have something you're not using that they need. Maybe you have a job lead or you have a skill that could come in handy to someone else. At least check. But we warn you, get a hankie ready...these comments will make you WEEP.
Hate people, but want to help in your own Scroog-y way? Buy Operation WANA swag on Zazzle. All proceeds are going to help people.
