A Call to Generosity: A Practical Way You Can Help

Have you ever been struck into action? I mean, the longing and calling that you hear to ACT is so overwhelming, you know you have no other choice?

That happened to me today.

I was reading Momastery's beautiful blog

When you read it, you'll understand.

You'll feel the call, too.

(Have you read it yet?)

So, I decided to join in ACTION. 

I have decided to join with my friends (this includes YOU), to do our own version of a Zach Attack

We're going to collect items to create loving gift bags for NICU Moms. 

Will you join me in ACTION?

We will be collecting the following items to BLESS mothers who have babies in the NICU. (NEW items only, please!)

-Reusable tote bag (Moms can do a lot of toting things back and forth from home and to the hospital)
-Gift cards (for gas or food; any amount; many mothers drive long distances to spend time with their babies and back home)
-Journals (for recording events/milestones and their time in the NICU
-Soothing CD's (lullaby CDs, anything soothing)
-Soft tissues (for all the crying that happens)
-An encouraging book for Mom (devotional, inspirational, words of encouragement)
-Unscented Hand Lotion (for all the scrubbing of hands that Moms do while visiting their babies, their hands get quite raw and dry)
-Toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, etc, because they spend many days and nights in the NICU without going home)
-Chapstick (it gets dry in the hospital)
-Healthy quick snack items (protein bars, etc)
-Favorite Baby Books (for Mom to read to baby)
-Throw blankets/lap blankets (to provide warmth and comfort for Moms)

We may not be able to include EACH of these items in EACH bag, but if we can collect as many of these items as possible, hopefully we can bless MANY NICU Moms! 

There is obviously a need for a QUICK turnaround here, as we'll only have the month of April to collect items.

I am sure many will be willing to donate. (How can we ignore the call to LOVE each other?) If each person who sees this donates only 1 item, we will have more than enough to bless these Moms! If EACH of YOU, my readers, donated $1, we would have over $700! 

Also, please consider asking local companies to donate items. You'd be surprised at how generous businesses can be! 

(I will be collecting items. Email me for the address to send items to me from afar to include.)

I have also set up a gofundme page for this mission. Please consider donated monetarily. All money collected will go directly to purchasing the above items, if you wish to help in that way. 

Will you answer the call to generosity?
