One more question.

I have finally convinced my kids to clean out about a hundred or so beanie babies and stuffed animals. Is there any local fire station, hospital or other organization that accepts donated stuffed animals in EXCELLENT condition? I don't mind just dropping them off at Goodwill, but if they can be donated for a good use I would really love that.

I also have a box of nursing tanks, maternity clothing, a Medela single electric breast pump, many extra parts for hospital grade pump, and books on pregnancy and child rearing that I would love to donate. Any suggestions? My first choice would be a women's shelter. I had a lead on a place a few months back but it didn't pan out, sadly.

For the beanie babies - our church in Roswell is always accepting them as one of the ongoing children's mission projects is that they make cheer-up gift bags for local kids who are seriously ill in the hospital. LMK if you'd like to do this. Thanks!

I can serve as a conduit between the two of you, if need be. :)

This would be GREAT, guys, thank you!

Heather, maybe when we get together for the movie next month I can bring them to you? Is it possible we will BOTH manage to remember? I won't be offended in the least if you send me a reminder. :D

Hee! Sounds like a good plan, assuming we can keep it together especially after the movie/dinner/dish-fest! :D

No kidding! I put a reminder on my calendar to bring them along to the movie, so that might keep it fresh in my brain...I hope, lol.

I just sent an email to the childrens' director just to make sure they're still collecting them...I'd hate to take them and not be able to put them to good use. Will let you know as soon as she replies. Thanks again!

....annnnd just got a vacation auto-responder that she's out until May 23rd. Shoot. I fully understand if you need to get them to a home sooner than that, but if not I will let you know as soon as she gets back.

I won't be seeing heathrow (if she's going to be my conduit to your side of town) until the end of June, so there's no rush. I usually get comments mailed to me so you could reply here when she gets back to you or email me at gabesmom@gmail.com. I would be tremendously grateful, thank you!

She's back from vacation and I got a response:

"Yes, we would love to have them. They go to children in the hospitals and into birthday boxes that go to children in need. Thanks for thinking of us."

Are the beanies are still avaialable?

Yes, absolutely, I have been saving them until I heard back from you! If heathrow is still willing, I will pass them to her next time I see her and she can pass to you. Thank you for keeping up with this, I love being able to give them to a good cause. :)

I'll buy the maternity clothes, pump and nursing tanks from you. Just found out that my cousin is pregnant with their second and they are in really bad financial trouble right now.

I was only looking to donate these items (rather than make money) in hopes that they would go to somebody who really needed them. I'd be very happy to have them go to your cousin!

I know that she could certainly use them. She just called me yesterday and asked me to be on the lookout for a pump for her. :)

Is you cousin approximately my size? I might have some more maternity clothes I can dig up, not sure yet what's left in there but I'll look!

Scratch that, I just realized they were donated with the items that didn't sell at the yard sale. Shoot, wish I known sooner because I had some REALLY nice stuff.
