I am excited to say that it is time for the Second Annual Starfish Supply Raiser to begin. Last year was such an amazing experience. I hope that this year is just as successful. I have been talking with Amanda and she wanted me to tell you all to follow your hearts in giving this year. She has infants who are needing very small preemie clothing and children wearing sizes all of the way up to 4T. She has both boys and girls at the foster home. Gently used clothing is wonderful.
If you are interested in participating, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get my address to you. All you need to do is send your Starfish purchases here to me and I will box them up with other donations and send them on to Amanda.
I will have Tim work on setting up the paypal for the postage donations.
Desiree has made a wonderful sidebar graphic, thank you so much!
I love the photo above because I recognize so many of the outfits on the children as being ones that you all sent last year. Below is a tally of what we sent last year. ALSO, I will need some spacebags, so if you have any laying around...they are wonderful for sending the coats.
*PLEASE DO WHAT YOU CAN TO SPREAD THE WORD THAT WE ARE COLLECTING AGAIN FOR STARFISH. I WOULD REALLY LOVE TO SEE THE NEW SIDEBAR GRAPHIC ON AS MANY BLOGS AS POSSIBLE AND HAVE IT LINK PEOPLE BACK TO HERE.
