Three years ago, Jill from Scary Mommy asked her readers if we’d be willing to support a family who may not otherwise be able to afford a Thanksgiving dinner. Of course I did. And I have every year since then. That first year, 378 families were helped and the Scary Mommy Thanksgiving Project and Scary Mommy Nation were born.
Scary Mommy Nation is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit that helps members of the Scary Mommy Community who are not able to feed their families. Since that first year, more than 4,500 families have benefitted from the Scary Mommy Thanksgiving Project. Last year alone, 2,765 families asked for help and every one of them got it.
And here’s the big news: On November 17, 2014 Scary Mommy will release her third book from Simon and Schuster… and I will be in it it!
Scary Mommy’s Guide to Surviving the Holidays is a hysterical collection of relatable, hilarious essays on everything from the Santa myth to being seated at the dreaded kids’ table, to easy-to-follow recipes that might include just a little something special to take the edge off (can anyone say Kahlua?), to fun and accessible gift ideas.
Yep, I have a recipe that is featured in the book, along with some of my favorite writers that I’m sure most of you know, too. I’m super excited about being a part of the Scary Mommy Thanksgiving Project I’ve supported these past years!
At only $2.99, this e-book is the perfect book to sit down with and read with a glass of wine after the kids go to bed. It’s affordable, and the most important part is that part of the proceeds of the sale of the e-book will benefit Scary Mommy Nation and the Scary Mommy Thanksgiving Project.
This is a huge deal for me because Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and I want everybody to be able to enjoy it as much as my family does. And I am so thankful for everything that we have, and that I can use my voice to help Scary Mommy spread the word. I hope you’ll support this great project!
