The Big Give 6/15/09

For years I’ve been receiving free things, you’ve heard the stories and seen the stockpile of items and some of you may be thinking, “how much toothpaste can one family need?” Well, the answer is not a lot!! While I love getting free things so that hubby and I can afford to live on one wage, what I really love doing is giving. I love giving my stockpile away to those who need it more which is why I’ve had an idea for months that I’m happy to announce is finally here.

On Monday, June 15, 2009 Mummy Deals is teaming up with PASS of Illinois to donate some items to their new center in Lansing, IL. For those of you that have been doing this for a while you know that it doesn’t take long to gain a stockpile that you can’t use and as a community here at MD I’ve love to be able to give some of our items to a very worthwhile cause that’s why I’m soooooooooooooooo stinkin happy to announce THE BIG GIVE.

PASS network of life-affirming care assists and empowers the greater Southland communities by providing a network of valuable, practical, and confidential care through Prevention, Crisis, Intervention, Housing, and Restoration programs and services for women with unplanned pregnancies. In June they are opening a house in Lansing and we at Mummy Deals want to help stock it with goodies! On June 15 the Center will be open to receive supply donations from 2:00pm until 8:00pm but I will be around from 6-8pm. More info about PASS here, for a list of baby items check this list out. PASS is also registered at Target. It’s gonna be like a big baby shower!!!

Please consider coming out to support this. These are women who feel there is no hope, women who need not only help and support but practical items like toiletries. I would love to get lots of people involved and bringing their stockpile. I’d love to meet you and help bless PASS so grab a friend and come on over! The address is coming shortly so check back later!

***If you’re interested in helping out, please email me at mummydeals at yahoo. Thanks!

    This will be my 1st year and i am actually excited about this. thanks for the post

  6. I am soooooo bummed that I can’t come!!! I’ll get you my “stuff” to bring on over. I am so glad for you that you finally get to do your “big give!”

  7. I’m very proud of you Clair! Sometimes as stay-at-home-moms we get so caught up with trying to save for our family we don’t think about the big picture. As chrictians, we are called to be the hands and feet of Christ. Doing for others is something your son will remember about you forever. Thanks for encouraging others to give too!!

    Did anyone donate to PASS last Monday? I haven't seen any info up on mummydeals stating how this event went. I had a difficult time finding the PASS house in Lansing, but eventually I found it. I was SO happy to donate two very full boxes of all my "super couponing" finds. It's nice to save my family money but it is even nicer to give back to the community! Like to hear some input from others that participated.
