Get Christmas Crazy

Written by Anya Sostek on .


For the fourth year in a row, blogger Burgh Baby, in the South Hills, is raising money for children in domestic violence centers. With one day left to give, she's surpassed $5,000 in donations. Learn more here, and read some of her most recent blog post below:

There are two days left to help make magic for kids who dare to dream big or small or somewhere in between. Thanks to all of you who have already been so generous, I've taken care of most of the items on the list for the kids who live in the transitional shelter at Center for Victims, but there are a few things left to get. There are kids who will be living in the emergency shelter on Christmas day and there are kids who are in other programs at CVC.

Domestic violence is an ugly thing that destroys lives and crushes childhood innocence. Let's make this holiday season a magical one for the kids who are experiencing that horror first hand, shall we?


Burgh Baby has also written for PlayGround about the equal-opportunity holiday of Halloween, strawberry-monster cupcakes and rolled tacos.
