Yes, I am on a mission! Two years ago my eldest daughter went on a months outreach programme to Namibia and we visited our local charity shops in search of baby clothes to send out there. Can you imagine how horrified we were to discover that there is no market for baby clothes in this country as the leading supermarkets all have their own brand of baby clothes at knock down prices. Every mother wants her baby to have new clothes - so did I all those years ago. The result is that most of the baby clothes donated to charity shops (Not all but certainly most of them) are RAGGED - just that - turned into rags! Outrageous when there are so many people in need - but as Mel says its the red tape and postage that makes it difficult. So, ladies, please when you are at Sainsbury's, Tesco, Asda etc., pop a packet of baby items into your grocery shopping and send it to me for onward shipping. I have visited my local charity shops and they are frantically collecting for me - they all know what it is like to be asking, so go visit them and ask them to put stuff aside for you. We do have this deadline of June 9th so anything that you can get to me prior to that will be brilliant. Go Girls, Go !!

I missed the mail boat when you were in the US earlier this year due to an unexpected emergency trip to help my dad, but have been collecting boy and neutral baby things since then. I will be in London and then Scotland in August and had thought to send them from there but it sounds as if that may not be the best idea. Should I send them to England now or should I just send them directly to you? Let me know what is best. I also have a daughter traveling to Denmark and she could send them from there or if you know anyone in will be traveling in that area. Just let me know.
