Joy For Jeni

  Jeni, aka "Candidmommy" is a youtube mommy vlogger who is loved by so many people in the YT community. She has over 16 million video views, 28,000 subscribers and has shared everything from the birth of her children and breastfeeding journey to product reviews, healthy meal ideas, grocery hauls and best of all her delicious recipes. 

Recenty Jeni has opened up about her divorce and sudden life as a single Mom.

Her finacial struggles are real and present as she is not recieving any child support and is stuggling to find a job where the pay is adequte enough for her to work and pay child care for her two boys.

While watching one of her latest videos. God placed it in my heart that I needed to do something to help her out. Something she would never expect nor ask for. She has shared so much with us and wouldn't it be amazing if we could shower her with our love, support  and appreciation as a communtiy during this time of need?

I have an audatious goal to raise $20,000!! If 1,000 people give just $20 we can reach this goal in no time.

I know I am not alone in this thought. I'm sure so many of you have watched her videos and also thought to yourselves that you wish there was something you could do. All I am doing is preparing the vessel in which together we can make this possible.

WHY $20,000?
Remember that GFM takes a percentage of the money so Jeni will not be getting this full amount. She once mentioned that she really liked a job but the salary was $7,000 short of what she would need to cover her child care expenses. So this will allow her to be able to work and not worry about if she can afford day care or not. She also has dental expenses for her and the kids, car repairs, house expenses.

Instead of getting a second job, she can just keep making youtube videos for us or work some of her other business like doterra or beachbody :) MANY youtubers make a living from doing videos full time, Now she can continue doing it with having to stress over money. 

Does Jeni know about this?

Now she does, and to say that she is overwhelmed with graditude is an understament! Jeni was going through alot more than what we knew and this couldnt've come at a more perfect time for her. 

Want to give more than $20?
Bless you!  The more money we recieve the quicker we can reach our goal. Be as generous as you like

**Give with no expectaitons:
It is important for me to emphasis that if you donate money do it with ZERO expectations of how Jeni should spend this money. The purpose of this fundraiser to lift her burden and bring JOY into her life during this trying time. She can save or spend the money HOWEVER she chooses to.( It's unfortunate that I have to even mention this but people are crazy and I don't want Jeni to have to feel like she has to explain herself to us.) This is a gift with with no strings attached.

Don't have $20 to spare? No Problem...
