***PLEASE READ*** donating clothing for babies/children

I may find somewhere else to send donations, but this is what I'm thinking as of right now...

It says they need clothing.

Leave a comment if you're interested in donating money ($5 will get a few outfits at the consignment store I'm going to) or clothing. I'll collect as much as I can and then send it all at once. If you have some old clothes that your baby has outgrown, that's perfect. That's what I have right now...TONS of clothes Dylan has outgrown. And 2 huge trash bags FULL of blankets! If you want to add a dollar or two for shipping, that'd help too.

Depending on what people donate, I might try to send boxes of diapers. We'll see. Right now, let's start w/ clothing and blankets.

I think I'm going to start w/ newborn up to 2T for clothing.

Each "set" will have a warm outfit, a cool outfit, a pajama, socks, hat/beanie, and a blanket. It will be labeled by size and sex. For example, "3-6months, girl" or "12-18months, boy".


I know it's small, but I don't have a ton of money to donate to The Red Cross or anywhere else. This is all I know to do. And I'm not asking for anyone to do this INSTEAD of donating money to those places....I'm talking about IN ADDITION TO donating money to those places. If you've got babies that have outgrown clothing and you want to donate it, leave a comment w/ your e-mail and I'll e-mail you my address.

All comments will be screened for 2 reasons:

1. I'm sure someone will have something nasty to say becuase devastations like this always bring out debates about "the best thing to do".

2. Nobody needs to see anyone elses address.

This has been on my heart to do ever since someone posted in breastfeeding about "living out of a diaper bag right now". I'm going to find that post and find out what size her child wears and start there. Her post has eaten at me to do this for the last few days.

Feel free to delete this if you want to. I'm going to post this everywhere.
