You're Invited to a Baby Shower!
Generous Kim began by reaching out to Alley, a mother in Kansas who is expecting her third child, by offering her help and encouraging others to join the "big sib club." And creative Susie expanded on Kim's wonderful idea by organizing an on-line shower, complete with gift ideas and registies.
You ladies rock!
If you've ever wondered what you can to do support the preservation of a family, here's your opportunity. Join in! Visit AfrindieMum for suggestions and ideas on what to do. (And don't be intimidated by all the talented knitters and quilters - even the creatively-challenged like me can help. We can SHOP, woo hoo!)
This online shower complements beautifully the idea for a mother's supply closet that Cloudscome posted awhile ago. Her idea is for everyone to reach out to agencies in their area to find out the kinds of services they provide to pregnant women, to help create supply closets for mothers at the agencies, and the to grow the closets online.
I'm guessing that everyone that reads this has ideas, too, or skills, or resources, or advice. If you blog, post about it! If you don't, add your thoughts in comments! Who knows where all of these ideas might go?
I think they could go very far indeed.
