Do you have new or gently used coats, gloves, hats, mittens, or scarves for children or adults that you could donate to a Family in Need??? If so, please PM one of the Holiday Helper Coordinators or Facilitators or post the item(s) you have to the "I Have Available" Thread:

http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1334602/the-i-have-available-thread

I think they're working now.  Do you mind checking?  They seem to be working for me now.  Hmm, odd.

Question: for all those who listed "I have available" things, is everybody responsible for shipping to whoever need it? (I even saw a bed listed there.) I have several coats available for kids and adults, and a bunch of toddler boy clothes, but I think unless they're all wanted by the same family, shipping might be rather steep to various families in US.

Hi Poddi,

 

Shipping help may be available. Here's some information from the Holiday Helper FAQ:

 

Can HH help me with shipping costs?

Maybe. The MDC Shipping Fairy is funded entirely by donations from the community. We are counting on each other. If you are able to donate funds, we will gratefully accept them through our GoFundMe account http://www.gofundme.com/MDC2011 To minimize shipping costs, we can also work with you to find the nearest Family in Need for what you have available. There are also several sizes of flat rate priority mail boxes, which allow you to know shipping costs in advance with no weighing – check ahead here and fill up a flat rate box! Please PM incorrigible if you are in need of Shipping Fairy help. This year we will be running the shipping fairy via GoFundMe, a fundraising site. Any little bit you have can help, and all donations received will go directly toward HH shipping assistance. If you have questions about how this is being handled, please contact AdinaL or incorrigible.

 

Please check out the Holiday Helper FAQ or contact AdinaL or incorrigible if you have more questions about shipping.

 

Thanks for your interest in donating!
