2011 Holiday Gift Exchange

Carrie and I are organizing a gift exchange again this year. It is open to Mom's, Dad's and siblings of lost babies. 

The upcoming holiday season is supposed to be ‘the most wonderful time of the year.’ But we all know, it’s these ‘special’ times that can really hurt the most. For many of us, the holidays are an incredibly bittersweet time, and a painful reminder of the little one(s) who should be there to celebrate them with us.
We hope this gift exchange will help brighten up the holidays for those of us missing our babies. Participants in the exchange will be matched with another Mom, Dad or sibling and can buy or hand-make their partner something in honor of their baby–an ornament, a special candle, anything! Participating is not only a great way to honor and include your child(ren) this holiday season, but a chance to connect with someone you may not have ‘met’ before.
Here are the details of the exchange:
1.)  Click here to sign-up, or fill out the form at the bottom of this post.
2.) Sign-up is open until November 25, 2011.
3.) You don’t have to celebrate Christmas or any other holiday to participate.
4.) To help with gift ideas, we ask you to tell us what reminds you of your baby(ies).
5.) We are asking that you don’t spend more than $20.00 so that no one feels obligated
to spend a lot of money.
6.) We will email you your partners’ information by November 28 2011.
7.) Please have your gift mailed by December 10, 2011.
8.) If for some reason your cannot fulfill your obligation, please let me or Carrie know right away, so we can make sure your partner receives a gift.
9.) Your address will only be shared with the Gift Exchange Coordinators and the person you will be matched with.

If you have any questions, leave a comment here or email me or Carrie
