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.

Every year, I try to get a game for the whole family to play. It works out really well over the school holiday! Right now, we have about 6 go to board games. This year I am so excited that my kids are finally all old enough for Clue! Looks like a child from FIN #10 has a similar passion for board games too!

Yes! The list in post #1 is only the books, toys, and art 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 keep HH up and running until January 15th, so there is still time to contribute!  Remember to check through your family's gently used clothes and toys!  They may be old to you, but they will be new for another child!

I just read about the fact that a wonderful MDC member is going to match donations up to $200!  What a great opportunity to help out and double your help!

Here's more info:

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!

Only 7 more days to go!  We're almost there!  Books are my favorite things to receive and to give.  My grandfather gets me a gift card to a book store every year for my b'day and I spend hours just looking through all the books, trying to figure out just one to get!
