It’s Thanksgiving Week here in the US, and I personally could not be more thankful for this HLB community!
By now I’m sure you’ve heard about the heart breaking news of our sweet friend Jen and her family who lost their entire home due to Hurricane Sandy. Jen has been sharing about her heartbreaking experience on her blog, Mom’s Gotta Run.
I was so happy to see that fellow healthy living blogger, Ashley created a registry at Target to help support Jen and her family as they move forward from the storm. If you’d like to support them, there are still items in need of purchase on the registry at all levels of cost. [and don’t forget you can always buy a gift card off the registry, too!] Visit the registry here: http://www.target.com/wedd/registry/2S7XRLLipmh0hBRbkdG2Ww and please spread the word to others who would like to help when someone in our community is in need!
