Well, those are all going to have to wait a little bit. (You thought I was gonna be productive here, huh?) Today I want to talk about another Mommy in my Facebook Mommy group(s) [We splintered into three or four groups a few months ago.] Yesterday, her family was devastated by a fire that engulfed their home, she, her husband, their little girl, and the family dogs are unharmed (physically), but they lost everything else in the fire. I'm doing what I can by sending off the size 2 diapers that our son has outgrown (her baby is on the smaller side), but that's only about half a package, along with a box of Rice Cereal, a package of wipes (that I swiped from Gabriel's stash), and then I plan to add a bag of dog treats and maybe a few small toys to the box to help fill in the space left.
She uses Gerber brand formula, so I'm looking for coupons for that (it's the one formula I do not have sample cans of, of course, or I'd send those too) and anything else I can help provide her family. Luckily, we have an awesome group of women and many others are also sending items to her family (clothes, essentials like shampoo, and housewares), I just wish I could do more! Heck, if I was closer, I'd make a road trip and take some clothes to them too (but, Pennsylvania is a bit of a drive from Washington)!
If you or anyone you know gets Gerber coupons, but doesn't use them, please consider passing them on to a Momma in need! I do this with all my "baby coupons", I signed up for all of them while pregnant, but since Gabriel is a breastfed baby, we don't use them at all (and we're also doing "Baby Led Weaning", so we don't use baby food either). I pass them along to those that do use them as they come in the mail to me (just sent a package of coupons out to a Mom using Similac and have an Enfamil coupon sitting next to me waiting to go out today/tomorrow to another Mom.
