Cards or letters for mischievium and MI_Dawn

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
If anyone is interested in sending cards or letters to mischievium and MI_Dawn to express sympathy for their losses, I will be collecting them over the next couple of weeks. (This is separate from the gifts being coordinated by JenMidwife via PM; mods, I hope it's kosher to post this since it isn't a fundraiser and involves no exchange of money.) We just thought that since so many of us were deeply affected when mischievium and MI_Dawn lost their babies, it would be nice to send them our heartfelt sympathies in a way that would be more personal and tangible than messages over the internet.

So if there's anything you would like to send, please PM me for my address. I'll be collecting things until Friday the 22nd (leaving a nice long time for everyone to get things sent, since I know we've all got our hands full right now). After that, I'll pack up everything that I've received and send it on. Please remember to make it clear which lady each card or letter is meant to be sent on to. Thanks!

Just bumping this up to remind folks to get these things in the mail to me in the next few days. And if you haven't already PMed me for my address, it's not too late to participate! Just let me know.

Is anybody still planning on sending things? Or has anybody sent things that might not have gotten here yet? Just wondering, because I gave my address to people who I haven't received anything from yet and I don't want to send the stuff out if there's more on the way.

They're here on my kitchen table, but I figured I missed the deadline. I can send them stamped if you want to send the others on ahead. Up to you.

Thanks!

Yeah, go ahead and send them. To tell you the truth I don't have mine ready to go yet, so it's not like I have a packet that's all ready to be mailed or anything. :

Not yet, the only ones I've received so far are from Shine. The mail hasn't come yet today, though, so maybe I'll get them later.

Dang, I sent them last Thursday! Hmm, I guess if you dont get them in a couple days, maybe I should send out a few more.

They arrived in the mail today. I guess maybe the holiday weekend slowed them down. Thanks!

kristin, I've totally slacked on this! Since I have their addresses, I might just send mine directly?

Either way is fine with me, just let me know whether to expect them. I do know that one or two other mamas are sending some to me that have not gone out in the mail yet. I will probably aim to actually send these out around the middle or end of next week.

And don't worry about feeling like a slacker. Lately I feel pretty pleased with myself if I manage to get the dishes done, let alone anything extra.
