Boxes and bags of diapers, clothes, toys, books, a bouncy seat, a swing, a Baby Bijorn, a sling, a bath tub, bath products, a monitor…we couldn’t possibly list it all. AND not only did our little buddy Didi get a new winter jacket, but she also got her very own ‘big sister’ t-shirt!
Last week we met a wonderful family that had fallen on very difficult times.
In October, Wanda was laid off from her job where she worked for more than 10 years. She has yet to find a new job and her husband, Albert, also is looking for work. With no income (Wanda’s last paycheck was October 20), the family was forced to leave their apartment and have been using their savings to stay in hotels in order to provide a warm bed for their five-month old daughter, Kailani.
Baby Kailani was in urgent need of diapers and formula. We were able to provide an immediate supply and within 72 hours we were able to share the following:
1 – Bottle Drying Rack
13 – Nipples (Stage 3)
8 – Bottles
80oz of Enfamil Formula
378 – Diapers
1104 – Wipes
12 – Jars Baby Food
1 Box – Rice cereal
40 – Items of Clothing 6-12 mos
1 – Winter Snowsuit
2 – Carseat / Stroller Toys
1 – Teething Toy
2 – Tubes diaper ointment/cream
1 – Baby Lotion
1 – Baby Shampoo/Soap
We are so proud of the Share Our Spare™community for their quick and generous response to this emergency situation. A special thank you to everyone who contributed; Wanda, Albert and Baby Kailani are extremely grateful for your support.
We met with Sarah and adorable Londynne today to give them all of their new things. Sarah was so appreciative and completely overwhelmed.
Because of your consideration and kindness, they received nearly 1,500 new and gently used items, including:
We also are thrilled to report that since we met Sarah she found a job working at a bakery near her house!
What an amazing show of support! A big thank you to our generous donors who have already ‘shared’ so much with Baby Londynne.

*Bath Products (Baby Shampoo/Soap, Baby Lotion)
*Clothing – Winter 3-6 months and 6-12 months

*Exersaucer or Jumparoo
*Pack ‘N Play Crib and Sheets
We will be collecting donations through September 18. Thank you!
Thank you for all of the generous donations to help baby Adilene and her parents – it was SO above and beyond the few items that were on her wishlist. Thanks to you, life just got a little bit easier for this family. The mission was to “share our spare” and that we did! We collected a TON of clothes, pajamas, winter coats, bibs, burp cloths, shoes, bows, diapers, wipes, formula, a mattress pad, a towel, blankets, bottles, a sanitizer, books, toys, dvds, food, a baby bijorn, a sippy cup, a tooth brush, a car seat, a mobile and much, much more!
Alicia, Remigio and Adilene were overwhelmed by the generosity of these donations. Alicia kept saying how much these items will help them. We think Adilene approved too — she was already hard at work chewing on some of the toys!
