Is there anyone that's not on the Diaper Fairy list?

Besides myself? I have no idea why I didn't sign up but I'm just curious if I'm the only one.

I'm not on it. My DH lets me buy whatever I want, but he has one rule. I am not allowed to buy anything pre-owned, so I couldn't sign up. I really wanted to.

I haven't. I'm not in a position to fairy someone else and I would feel guilty if someone fairied me :

I'm not. I fairied a couple of people, but I already had their addresses from other dealings.. but the items were just small things. I like the giving, and I'm sure I would like the receiving, but I feel strange submitting my info to the list.. like I'm asking for something. I know that's silly and totally not the point of it all, but since I can't send anything substantial, I feel like it wouldn't be right for me to receive... Then, yesterday, I looked at that aid for orphans site and felt so guilty for everything I have bought in the past couple of weeks that were just frivilous things (although they do make me smile ) I think that next time I get the urge to fairy, I'm only going to fairy to a need. If it's a mama in the US who NEEDS something (and yes, a show of love or a pick me up gift is a need sometimes so it doesn't have to be a diapering need per se) .. then so be it, but if not, when the fairy urge comes on and I have the funds, I'm going to be donating to the aid for orphans fund.

What I would like to see, is the ability to fairy to the orpahns in someone's name. For example.. if I donate 3 prefolds and two covers (bought from the aid for orphans site).. it would be so cool if a little email or real card could be sent to someone I'd like to diaper fairy saying "Your very own Diaper Fairy has provided 3 diapers and 2 covers to an orpanage in your name" and maybe an optional personal message. Does that make sense? I'm just feeling so blessed these days even though money is tight that while I want new diapers for my dd, we certainly don't need them and the need is so great elsewhere. While it would be smashing fun to get something pretty in the mail, it would be so touching to know that a need somewhere is being met because someone cares about you.

Just a though

What do you mean?

Amber, that is a GREAT idea! I see no reason why that couldn't be done!

And you know, just because you submit your name doesn't mean you're looking for someone to fairy you! We set up the list so that in order to be able to get someone's name you had to give your name, just for fairness and privacy and all that.

Oh, and I know you! I always make note of you because you're from NC and I'm from NC and we really want to move to Charlotte!

I'm on it because I wanted to fairy a few more people I didn't have addys for. But too many of my fairyings have turned out bad so I am really bummed

I'm not. In fact I've never even opened any of the fairied posts here so I still don't really know what it is. But it sounds fun.

Hm, without going into details, I just wish I hadn't fairied some people. And it sucks to feel that way!

That does suck, Danielle

I am on the list, but I feel guilty because I haven't had a chance to fairy anyone yet.
