Thanks to your purchases of my Teeny Genie necklace, I’ve sent a check for $1260 to blogger Janet of Je Ne Sais Quoi (as well as a Teeny Genie for her daughter). As you might recall, Janet’s husband took his own life in January, leaving behind no insurance, savings or 401K for his wife and two children. I have been donating $35 for every Teeny Genie sold, and I still have about 30 left, so if you want to help Janet, please click the Genie picture to buy one.
Way back in January, you had also contributed more than $4,000 to Janet directly.
Janet updated her blog on Sunday with a very moving post. It was her birthday on Monday too, so read her post and leave her some good wishes.
UPDATED ON APRIL 7: Janet has made her blog private while she deals with very personal issues in the wake of her husband’s death. You can email her to get an invitation to the blog, but she understandably decided she’d rather not have everything out in the open considering potential employers might Google her.
Stunning WendyB and so generous.

You always rock the red lipstick so well! I’m just getting into it, and I’m totally loving it.
I love how supportive those in the blogging community are of each other. I just posted a really personal post and the comments were so uplifting and supportive. I love that about blogging. I feel like I get to see the best in people on a daily basis.
WendyB you’re amazing.
I’m glad Janet is the recipient of so much generosity. The blogging world is a warm and caring one.

I’m glad people are helping Janet and thank you for coordinating it. I second Winona – you’re amazing.
This warms my heart that the blogging community is so tight-knit and giving.
By the way I am moving my blog. (www.janetteria.com), but I have a big problem with DNS of blogger.com and now the blog update is not working. I want let me know this. Please don’t forget to visit this blog, because I have a new post for every day and I love you all. ♥
You rock, Wendy. And I’m so happy that Janet has some support to keep her going while she gets her world back on track.
Thank you again for doing this for Janet. And I love my Genie! I believe she brings me good luck.
Thanks for the update, Wendy. I just read Janet’s post and wow, you’d have to be made of stone not to be moved. I wish her all the best because her road is not an easy one.

Her story is so moving, and yet hard to fathom at the same time. My heart goes out to her. You’ve done a wonderful thing for her and her family Wendy, thank you.
you are seriously awesome.
you are amazing, you know that? this is going to sound cheesy, but i’m blessed to “know” you:)
wow, that’s such a lovely idea and SO incredibly kind of you. really inspiring.
Denise @ Swelle says
I was going to email you and ask how she’s doing and here it is. I read her post and since no words can adequately describe how I feel about what she and her children are going through I’m just going to say ‘banana’.
I will continue to spread the word. And buy lottery tickets.

You’re an exceptional human being, WendyB.
u make me proud to be a blogger. and i love my genie necklace…i wear it all the time!
I second all the wonderfuls above, it is so great you organized this. And I love my genie, it’s so delicate and pretty I hardly ever take it off.
This is why I love the blogging community. Everyone can band together to help a fellow friend in need. This is truly wonderful, Wendy. Though I don’t have the means to purchase the Genie necklace, I will be donating a little something via Paypal for Janet & her kids. I wish them all the best on this very difficult journey.
wow, that’s such a nice idea and SO incredibly kind of you.
This is so pretty !
