As Co-founders (Jyl [left] and Carissa [right]) of MommyGossip—GNO, our goal is to change the world one mom at a time. We started out simple with a girl's night out on twitter (#gno). What could be better than a little fun with your fav online friends, right? But what started as mere socializing has grown into something much more significant. Because of you and the shape you are giving to this amazing community, we are making a difference one fundraiser, one random act of kindness, and one service project at a time!
Moms—You!—are the ones making a difference. You shine in your success, you create magic for your families, and then you go out and make a difference in your communities. Now, we'd like to give back to you.
If you haven't heard the good news, #GNO won one of the HP Magic Giveaways. One big GIANT thanks goes out to Sugar Jones from Living in Theory for hosting this contest and spreading the magic to us. She is magical herself. You can tell she is one of the moms we are talking about. A woman making a difference—in her life, in her community, and in our world.
(Plus! Did you see her announcement video...? She rocks and she's got a voice and a laugh that tells it all!)
As I write this I'm watching my kids sled on the frozen hill behind my house. And I think how lucky I am to have such amazing kids and live in a country where I have so much, and to be part of a world where there is beauty and goodness there for the taking... And I think about others who might be dealing with kids who are sick. Who might have financial problems. And I think maybe there's a magic here, something that we can give back.
We'd like MommyGossip—GNO to be that magical force in women's lives. And, now that we get to take a turn with the HP Magic wand, we have a super secret plan to spread the HP magic to four amazing women. Stay tuned... it's gonna be good!
