13 Days of Giving: Twilight Moms Sink Their Teeth into Charity Work

 It may seem like Christmas time is the wrong season to find inspiration in a group of werewolves and vampires.

But the Twilight Moms of Middle Georgia are using their love of the 'Twilight' vampire book series to sink their teeth into charity work this holiday season.    

On Wednesday about 20 women were busy wrapping, taping, and gluing in group founder Cindy Adrien's home, preparing for a round of holiday services activities. 

Adrien founded the group about a year ago and says they've been busy working for the community ever since. 

"After our 'New Moon' movie premiere, things just exploded," says Adrien.

She started the group to bring together women, specifically mothers, to share their passion for Edward, Bella, and all things 'Twilight,' and to put that inspiration to good use.

The group has about 500 fans on their Facebook page, and Adrien says they have about 30 active members.
