One of the coolest things about Nightscrawlers is that the members tend to stick around, often for years and years, and that makes the site feel a bit like a family.
One of the things friends and families do when one of their members falls on hard times is to "pass a jar" around and collect a little bit of cash from everyone to help out. So that's what we're doing. One of our members heard about the troubles of another and suggested to the staff that helping out might be in order.
And we loved the idea!
So, let's turn what could have been a lousy Christmas for this family into a great one.
You can give a little or a lot, using your paypal account or a credit card - since it's a donation, Paypal exempts any fees so everything we collect by December 20th will go to them to help buy gifts for their children, have a nice meal, or even pay off some bills.
We all have countless opportunities to give to charities, but this is a chance to help out one of our own!
