… because someone may not have what you do not want.
So, I decided (and I’m 99.99% sure that Dave is on the same page as me here) that we WILL NOT be having any more kids. There are two of us and two of them. Any more and we’ll be outnumbered and, more than likely, outsmarted. So two it is.
I already have a couple of things that (a) I know I will never use with/for Mika and (b) that are too small/unsuitable for Mika and it’s all just taking up WAY too much space in our already over-crowded home. So I got to thinking about what I could do with this old baby stuff. I usually give all of my old clothes to Beauty at this time of the year and she sells it and makes herself a bit of extra cash for the festive season. But with baby stuff, it’s different. I wanted to give it to someone/an organisation that really needed it.
Tanya and Nicole both recently participated in the Ford #FocusMyFunds project, using a Ford Focus to raise funds (in whichever way they saw fit) for a charity of their choice. Tanya ran 20-odd km for the SPCA and Nicole used her fire-red Ford Focus to provide a taxi service, to collect money for the Princess Alice Adoption Home.
It’s not the first time I’ve heard of the PAAH. Dave and I spent some time with the little ones there on Nelson Mandela Day last year. The PAAH is a safe-gaven for up to 30 gorgeous little babies at any given time, as well as a home for pregnant girls in crisis. The PAAH helps them through their pregnancies, assisting them in the final, heart rending decision of whether or not they want to give their child up for adoption.
They need help, as do many non-profit organizations … and this is where I intend “doing my bit” to give back.
I’d love to hear about other organizations that you may be involved with? Sharing, and giving, is caring!
