Does anyone mind? As everyone has probably read Quixote/Jess is going through a really rough time at the moment with her girls. I see there has been offers to help but I thought I could get the ball rolling?
If anyone is willing to help please let me no. I will message her shortly and ask what she needs. I thought meals would be a good idea, money donations maybe,gel/heat packs, maybe nappies?
If I'm treading on any toes please let me no.
Thanks

Good on you OP.
Also happy to make small donation, every bit helps I guess.  They really appreciated it last time.  This family has had a bloody rough 12 months.   We could even call it a first birthday present to the girls so it's not seen as charity?
PM details when you are ready to go.

Cheers,
D.

What a wonderful idea muminbusiness.

As usual, we have to advise that Fairfax accepts no responsibility for lost or mis-directed donations.

Any donations should be given freely with no expectations.

Hey everyone.
I'm 100% sure that Jess won't accept any money after what happened last time. There were a lot of rumours flying around about the donations when the twins were born, all of which were simply not true. It actually caused her a lot of added stress at a time when her girls were fighting to survive and she really didn't need anything else to worry about. If anyone is planning on being nasty about this, I simply suggest you close the thread.
Meals are a great idea though. original.gif

Hi there eb.
The last thing I want to do is cause Jess any stress at all. I would like to say here right now. I have never meet Jess,but I've been following her story right from the word go. I want to do something to help and I know a lot of people are to far away to do meals. There has been no one at all that has asked me to do this. I should also add people that are so kind to donate I think are doing so with any expectations on what Jess is to do with the money. Please let me know what everyone thinks. If it is going to cause stress I will get the thread closed. Please let me reiterate again if this thread stays open and people do decide to donate please do so without conditions.
Thank you again
