Ditto, it's your call....don't wanna thread jack, but I guess it makes sense for Auckland stuff to come to me? And people closer to Wellington to send to you?
I'll PM you jujube with my address....others who want to donate from the Auckland area please PM me for my address.

Yes, if Auckland people can send to embejo, Waikato people to shorty, and Wellington people to me, that would make most sense. Also, is anyone in the South Island willing to do it too?

Bumping. I got a handwritten letter yesterday from the lady who runs it, saying thanks for some covers I sent over earlier. They're distributing them at camps in person so that they actually go to people with babies instead of being sold.

Thanks for bumping this ditto...I have some nappies and covers ready to go (and some wee socks), but I'll happily include anything people from the Auckland region would like to add to the parcel before it goes. Postage donations still welcome too. PM for address or details. Thanks.

Bumping again - I have had postage money donated but nothing donated to post :lol: I do have a few things to send myself, but Welly people, if you have any spare baby clothing or flat nappies or covers, they would be most appreciated. TIA :) I'll make the cut-off the 17th of May for Wellington too.

Esther, I have only just seen this thread .... maybe you need to start a new thread that alerts people as I'm sure there would be people wanting to give to such a worthwhile cause.

If only I'd seen this sooner. I've just had 5 family members go over for a holiday this last month... they could have taken stuff with them! DOH!!
I'm sure we'll have more of us heading over sometime, so if this keeps going we could take stuff over next time.

Also, I'd be more than happy to coordinate a Aussie pack? Any of the aus ladies keen to join in? I have heaps I could send over. ANd I'm more than happy to help SA!!!

As for the EC'ing. No Natal is not tribal at all... well most of SA isn't anymore. Some may live in tin shanty towns and the like, but they still live pretty much the same as us.
