Virtual Diaper Drive
If you are not in Los Angeles and/or can’t attend my super awesome Holiday Playdate in Beverly Hills on December 13, you CAN help by hosting a virtual diaper drive. Wherever you live in the country, there’s bound to be families who are struggling, and would be grateful for the extra help. Whatever your personal feelings about why people are in positions of poverty or homelessness, you can’t blame the children. Why not help them instead?
Wendy Copley of the blog Wendolonia is doing just that. See how she is choosing to host a drive. You can do it, too! Help a Mother Out has a diaper drive toolkit to get you started. Or, contact me and I’ll coach you through it, although I must confess I haven’t done one yet myself. No, I’m going big with this huge party I’m throwing. I mean, come on. It’s Los Angeles. A small splash is no splash at all.
In other helpy news, Lands’ End is hosting a used coat collection drive all over the country. It’s called the Big Warmup – if you bring a gently used coat to one of their collection sites, it will make it into the hands of a needy, cold person, and you will get 20% off a new Lands’ End coat. More details at Help a Mother Out.
Can you tell I’m excited about all this? I just got back from the chiropractor. My back feels better, I have a cup of hot coffee at my side, and things are finally happening. It’s a good morning.
