Does anyone have Rainbowmoon's address- from the baby shower swap maybe?? Maybe we could send something , like flowers, from the August Mom group here? She was an active member and many of us feel close to her and her family. My heart is breaking for her.
What do you all think?

I was just thinking the same thing. Maybe we could all give money to someones paypal account and send her as much stuff as we could. We could do flowers, massage, gift cards, whatever...

Sounds like a great idea! I still have her address from the birth bead swap - she's in the southwest, I can pm it to whoever ends up being the "lead" on this. I would volunteer, but haven't had the baby yet and don't want to drop the ball in the middle of getting this together.

Does anyone know of a local pp doula who could come out, watch the little ones, maybe do some cleaning?

Great idea! I can't even imagine what she must be going through, poor dear. I like the doula idea or whatever would be truly helpful to her?

If we can't find a PP Doula, my other suggestions is to get a gift certificate to a local house cleaning service. Then she can call and schedule them whenever she wants. Maybe we could get enough for like 3 cleaning trips or something like that.

The idea of a pp doula and/or cleaning service is great. It looks like there alot of people who want to contribute, so we should be able to help her out for a long time.
I wish there is even more we could do. This is truly heartbreaking.

Hi all,

Oh my god. My heart is broken for her.

I volunteer to collect the money and then someone who finds out about the doula can tell me where to send it. I was going to volunteer to collect it in our paypal account, but you know that paypal takes a cut and it adds up. I could accept checks at a po box??

Where in AZ does she live? I have friends in Tucson. If she's from around there, I could get a rec for a massage therapist...


What do you think? I really want to help. Will definitely send money if I'm not the organizer of it.

Ok, I now have April's (rainbowmoon's) paypal address, regular address and phone. She said that any kind of help will be much appreciated, and that she still doesn't have any information about her husband's death, feeling very lost. Poor dear.

I'm sure hoping to have this baby any day now, so if henhao or anyone else wants to organize something, that'd be great and I'm happy to pass on the info via pm to anyone who wants to help.

I am in Tucson, and don't know RM, but a friend is very close to their family. It has been suggetsed that since there is family out right now, and help, to perhaps wait a few weeks or so. When family start having to go home, and life settles down more.

May I suggest continue to coordinate, and collect all donations and ideas, and maybe give them in a few weeks? I think meals, housecleaning, mother's helpers etc..are great ideas!

You are all such wonderful, amazing, and giving mamas!

I have been talking to some mamas from the UC board and forwarding them to here. I guess this should be the official place to congregate to help her. I had some ideas that we could do, too.
Gift certificates to local stores, Target, Kmart, Walmart, or certificates to Schwans dinner delivery- so she doesn't have to cook. One less thing to deal with ya know?
She can order food online.
I like the doula or a housekeeper,too.
Thanks!

So are we still doing this? I really want to, but I can't be in charge of it. I can barely be in charge of making dinner right now! :LOL ;
