Yup!  I can't help but think of the person who sent me the coat and snow pants every time I put them on!  :love

Check out the Thank You thread to see how much your support means to Mothering's families. Wouldn't it be fantastic to be able to meet all of clothing and requests for these families? Can you help meet a clothing or other need today? PM me if you have any questions.

Many of our HH families celebrate Christmas. It's only a week away! Can you help us meet some needs before Christmas? If you don't have time to order a gift or send a gently used item, contribute some spare change or more to help support Mothering's families! To contribute to the PayPal collection, just go to the PayPal site (https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/send-money-online), and send whatever amount you wish to the email address: motheringHH2013@yahoo.com. PM me if you have any questions.

We have over a foot of snow here. I can't imagine trying to get around in all this snow and ice without warm clothes and boots! Maybe you have a coat or a pair of boots that your children grew out of that you'd be willing to send to a FIN? Even if you don't see something listed as a need here, doesn't mean a family can't make use of it. Come on over and post tO the I Have Available thread.

 

Edited to add a link to the I Have Available list.

Yes! The list in post #1 is only the clothing items still needed, so it's getting shorter. YAY! If anyone wants to check out the Master Needs List here, you can see all the items that have been provided (they are the ones crossed out); it's inspiring. :joy

It's not too late to be a Holiday Helper!  We still want to meet as many of Mothering's families' needs as possible, and we would appreciate any help you can provide.

 

How you can help:

 

If you'd enjoy picking out a gift and send personally or if you have gently used items to give, you can visit our Master Needs List to see what each family has requested, you can read about the individual FINs in our Families in Need Forum, or  you can post to the I Have Available Thread with what you have to offer and our lovely volunteer match makers can make the matches for you.

 

Have some spare change (or more)? We have set up a PayPal account to accept contributions to be used to support the families in need. If you are able to contribute any amounts, large or small, we will be collecting contributions and combining them to help fulfill the requests of families who haven’t had as many needs met. To contribute to the PayPal collection, just go to the PayPal site (https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/send-money-online), and send whatever amount you wish to the email address: motheringHH2013@yahoo.com. Every cent helps!

 

If you have any questions, please contact HappyHappyMommy and QueenOfTheMeadow.

 

Thank you! :heartbeat

We're going to be running the Holiday Helper Program up until January 15th, so there is still time to contribute!

I never imagined not being able to play outside like you wanted to because you didn't have snow pants or mitts. That post in the thank you thread really affected me.

Can we get all of the clothing needs met before the New Year? Do you have a gently used idea that you can send to another family? Would you like to purchase some new clothes for a child or a parent? Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

It's a new year and your kids probably got some new clothes for the holidays. Maybe it's time to go through their clothes and get rid of things that don't fit anymore? You can see where I'm going with this, right?

There's cold weather in a lot of the US today. Can you help get some warm clothes to our Families in Need?

Great news! A Mothering member has offered to match contributions made to the Spare Change (or more) Fund between January 6th and January 15th, up to a total of $200. In other words, if 200 of us each contribute $1, she'll contribute another $200, which would give HH $400 towards helping to meet the outstanding needs of the HH families. Can you contribute something today? $1, $5, $10, $20.14, $100. Any contributions will help!

 

To contribute to the PayPal collection, just go to the PayPal site (https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/send-money-online), and send whatever amount you wish to the email address: motheringHH2013@yahoo.com. Every cent helps!

It has been so incredibly cold here lately.  Just walking to the car can be a difficult thing.  I really hope that we can get all these needs met.  It doesn't seem like anyone, especially children, should be walking about cold or in clothes that don't fit.  Please see what you have in your closets or contribute to the spare change fund and we can get some of these families things that they desperately need!
