jcpshopinI am sure you have heard about the group that strongly opposes JC Penney hiring Ellen DeGeneres as part of JCP’s new ad campaign. This group threatened JC Penney saying that hiring Ellen was anti family. Because Ellen is gay. And according to this group being gay means you are anti family.

As a friend of many, many, MANY gay families I literally laughed out loud. Really? Oh boy.

I heard about bloggers uniting this weekend to show support of JC Penney for not caving to the pressure of a bully group and I knew I wanted to be a part of it. It was nice to send a message to a company that was THANK YOU.

Not familiar with what I am talking about? Here are some links to get you started:
