Alright. I know that technically I'm not part of your due date club anymore.

1.) I had DS in September
2.) He didn't make it and now I feel like I'm not part of any DDC.


BUT!!!

That is an entirely different matter!!

I was wondering... I was reading the Holiday Helper thread and one member mentioned that the Feb 2005 DDC is still going strong and adopted a whole family in need and got them covered for the Christmas holidays.

NOW... I know many of you are baby-mooning or are still anticipating the loaves of bread to arrive. (sending those labor vibes to those who need them btw)

But do any of us think we can pool together and help a family in need this year? Be it a couple of paypal dollars or a gift card you have lying around that you wont need? Do you have a close family member who would be willing to get to the post office for you to mail a box of Gently Used Items?


I'm genuinely curious. I was inspired by the mom from the Feb '05 club.

GREAT MOM to dd (5) and )ds( [sept 26 2006]

Any particular preferance to helping out Canadian mom VS US mom? I know shipping might be the deciding factor so I'm just curious.
