I can’t imagine enjoying the holidays if I didn’t help people in need. I have listened to many a Mother that is crying on the phone to me because they can’t afford to buy what their kid wants. It’s heartbreaking. Kids don’t understand why other kids they know get a stocking from Santa but they don’t.
It puts everything in shocking clarity.
Victor resident, mother, wife, Democrat & Chronicle blogger, photographer, architect and chronic do-gooder Terryn Maybeck believes in the Stocking Project so deeply that she has somehow mustered the strength in the midst of her chemotherapy treatments for her second hellish rollercoaster ride with ovarian cancer to make sure the less fortunate kids of Victor and Farmington will have a better Christmas than they imagine possible.
I love that Terryn has reached out to her fellow Rochester Artisans to add our handcrafted items to the stockings. Dollar Store items fill the bill quite often, but there’s nothing like creativity that comes straight from the heart.
Terryn is an artist. She knows.

Email Terryn to let her know what you can do to help her, help give kids a merrier Christmas this year.
Deadline for getting stocking items to Terryn is November 26, 2012.
