Thank You

Before we get to today’s Marathons+Moderation post,  which will go up later today, I have to take the chance to say THANK YOU! Due to your generosity, over 116 items have already been purchased from the registry! But, there are still over 100 items left that such as hangers, clothing for the kids, smoke detectors, and more! In addition, Jen and Pedro found a rental on Staten Island for their family late Monday night! Though the move was easy since their largest piece of furniture was an air mattress, it’s still a home.


Thanks to your passion to help Jen and her family this post was shared so much that it was brought to the attention of! Late yesterday, I was honored to be interviewed by for a story that is now on their site and their sister site, sharing the story of Jen Maccarino-Correa and the Target registry created for them. I’d love your help in making sure this important story doesn’t get lost amongst the political news today! Please share it on your networks so we can help fulfill the entire registry!  Click the image below to see the entire article and share it with friends and family members!


Thank you for proving just how amazing the world really is amongst all the negativity that has been shown lately amongst the marathon, Hurricane Sandy and the election craziness.
