The 'Clarissa Explains it All' Experience
Can you believe it's been 20 years since the show's final episode? In celebration of such a special anniversary, our dear friend Melissa Joan Hart dug some original 'Clarissa' pajamas (worn by herself) out of the closet and they can be yours! Did we mention the lucky winner gets to Skype with her? The more you participate the better your chances of winning. All proceeds from this campaign will benefit Friends of the Family's efforts to continue strengthening families. Check out all the details here. Good luck!
