2012 Holiday Gift Exchange - sign up sheet available

The 3rd Holiday Gift Exchange sign-up sheet is available for 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 or 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)  Sign-up at
2) Sign-up is open until November 28, 2012.
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 (U.S. dollars) so that no one feels obligated
to spend a lot of money.
6) We will email you your partners’ information by December 1, 2012.
7) Please have your gift mailed by December 10, 2012.
8) If for some reason your cannot fulfill your obligation, please let Dana know right away, so we
can make sure your partner receives a gift.
9) Your address will only be shared with the Gift Exchange Coordinator and the person you will be
matched with.

Let me know if you have any questions.
