I probably have some booties and cardigans, when are you looking at posting? I need to have a big sort out of all the clothes I have here.

The end of this week was the plan, but I can give people more time if it's needed :)

Are they only after nappies? I have a few surplus flats at the moment, but everything else is in use.

I have a few baby clothes I don't need that could be included too if they would be useful. I need to sort through some stuff.

I have HAEPS of clothes that I'm happy to give ditto, all in good used condition, but no nappies as we didn't use flats might have some covers floating around as well :D

Who is the collection person for Auckland??

Fitteds are fine...I'm sending a bunch of fitteds and covers.
ETA: I think flats are great too, because I read that they give them a nappy and a pin in each pack!

The Auckland collection for the Baby pack project is now closed. Here is the final collection of things ready to send. Thank so much to Gabes, Bubbles (who I got to meet and have a cuppa with :smt039 and Aidanasha.
I'm so glad that we'll make a real difference in the lives of some mums and babies for whom life is hard. Thanks everyone, especially Ditto who brought it to our attention.

The Wellington collection's closed now too. Special thanks to Danielle, Kyle, and Mickeigh for their generous donations :)

My DH just worked out that this box is going to cost over $100 to send economy :shock: so any further donations towards postage would be much appreciated.
