Following "Bears for PMH" I have seen how even a small gesture like giving a child a teddy bear can affect lives. As the New Year has come I have been thinking how I with the help of others can help more people around the world as well as on our own soil. Just doing little things to help others can make all the difference and sometimes restore one’s faith in humanity.

 It doesn't always have to be money related.. It can just be time or even lending an ear.

So the goal this year is to help one person, shelter, refuge or family a month. I will be as always contributing both financially and time wise but I will extend the hand to those who would like to help through me as the vehicle.

The first month has already presented itself to me. I will create an event once a month.

January's event came about when I was researching for "Bears for PMH".  I came across a lot of Facebook groups about helping others. There was one in particular that I thought I would contact. I have been in contact with the lady who started it up. Her name is Stacey. She runs a shelter in Iowa USA. Yes that is right.. IOWA... She does not get paid and is a mother of three, yet she co-ordinates and arranges donations and swaps of things that the people around in her small town need. She does not ask for money. The group is made up of a lot of single mother's who are struggling from what I have observed.

I have contacted her and asked her just out of interest what would be most helpful thing that could be donated to the help centre to help out the people who rely on the generosity of others.  She said NAPPIES.....and baby related products. 


So January month is HELPING OTHERS month for a Help centre in Iowa, USA....

All those who would like to help this is how you can.

I have devised a plan..

I sent her a small parcel of things last month so I know that she is legitimate and I have seen pictures of them being distributed.

 I have thought how we can bypass postage etc.

So how we will get around it is this… I have set up a Wal-Mart wish list under her name and I have added a list of nappies and wipes to it.  All different brands and all different sizes. The prices of the nappies or wipes vary from 4 dollars to 30 dollars. I have made a wish list of $1000. 

I will raise funds here and then I will purchase them from the wish list that has been created for the help centre and then they will be automatically dispatched to her. She will then in turn take them to the centre she runs on the weekends.

Hopefully we will stock her for a little while with basic needs for all the struggling new mums.


It is a helping hand from the other side of the world.

Any questions or suggestions please feel free to email me at or send me a private message. I am more than willing to chat or answer questions.

Here is to extending the hand of love and help to others around the world….

I hope you all had a safe and happy Christmas. Happy new year.


With my sincere thanks and love.
