Thanks to the support received since the message above was posted, we've been able to fulfilll another request. Please keep the support coming so that we can continue to meet needs for families who hadn’t had as many needs met. :love

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

Also we all probably have all kinds of Christmas presents we will never use. If they are not on someone's list we can still post to the I Have Available thread. We can make lots of happy people I think!

:yeah Here's the link to the I Have Available list.

 

And this is a great time of year to go through your and your children's closets and dressers. Do you have clothes that you never wear? Do your children have clothes they've outgrown? Check the Master Needs List or post them to the I Have Available list! Gently used clothes are so appreciated!

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!

7 more days to go!  Please check out our families in need.  There are still a few families that could use some support.  This is an easy way to help out, and now you are actually doubling your contribution due to the kindness of another member of the community!

Update (1/11): To date, through the Spare Change (or more) Fund, we have met a total of 29.5 needs and supported 10 families. Can you help us make 100% needs met by January 15th?

 

PS The support noted above reflects contributions made before the current matching challenge (as we are waiting to see what the total contributed during the matching period will be). Can you contribute something today? $1, $5, $10, $20.14, $100? Any contributions will help and up to $200, your contributions will be matched by another Mothering member.
