We started a baby supplies drive to help. This was inspired by panic related to the government shutdown. I was thinking about families who need help from WIC and what would happen if the funds dried up while congress continues to…well you know.

What if I just want to donate some money and you can go shopping?
That’s great! I set up a Paypal account for those of you that might want to help but are either far away, or unable to stop by a drop location.
You can look me up on Paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org to donate a few dollars for a Costco run. If you do this, please also send me an email so that I can confirm that your donation went through. This is my first time trying any of this and I want to make sure that we open up every opportunity to donate and help.
PHASE 1: Complete
Superwoman Maile Shoul has already completed phase one of this project by collecting donations via Paypal and making a trip to Target. She and the wonderful Harry Gordon picked up:
– Three containers of hypoallergenic formula
– Ten containers of baby food
These supplies were dropped off at The Grow Clinic this morning and will go right to helping families in need.
This has been a wonderful experience so far and I thank you all so much for your support.
Lots of love. Seriously, lots.
