I registered to donate, was just wondering when we find out who to send to?

Just bumping this as I can't remember either!

Glad to know it's not just me! grin

Thanks, was just worrying I had missed it.

If not heard yet does that mean donation not needed? Want to know whether to give stuff elsewhere.

I emailed this week to check & they haven't sent the details out yet.

If it's any help, Rebecca posted this on Thursday on another thread.

"We did originally say that we would have all of the mails out by the 23rd (tomorrow) However, it is going to be more like the 27th now.

Apologies for the delay - we are ruffling our papers and SandyMumsnet is busy making the spreadsheet make sense <boggle>

Still plenty of time for the Christmas post!"

Yes great help thank you. Am happy to wait. Just if it's not needed I want to find somewhere else to send it all for redistribution.

My emails arrived today smile now to remember what I donated :/

ParsingFancy Tue 27-Nov-12 13:24:33

i've just got my email and realise... I've no idea how to do this!

I know NOTHING about this person, except her address and how many children she has, and that she's a she.

I don't know if she would appreciate vouchers (and for where) or sniff at my tiny contribution.

I've no idea what she like and any gift I buy is going to be way off the mark.

Help! How do I DOOO this?

<takes ParsingFancy by the shoulders and shakes gently>

Calm down, it will all be fine. grin

Get whatever you might like, you can buy for the MNetter or the DC or both, you could get gifts and wrap them, send a voucher, buy some Christmas decorations - whatever you fancy (or specifically offered) - it is just something nice for your fellow MNetter to open and enjoy as a small thank you for being a luffly human being - no pressure wink

In all seriousness, folks have sent anything from a £5 voucher or nearly new baby clothes to a few hundred pounds. Most will do something around the £10 - £20 mark. Don't worry, it's supposed to be nice and cockle warming.

Here is last year's Thank you thread for some ideas

Careful with all that shaking, RM - the head's none too tightly screwed on!

Thank you lots, cockle-warmers I can do.

<goes off to peruse last year's thread>

Yes, anytime you like but before Christmas obvs

Sparklingbrook Mon 03-Dec-12 18:32:55

Ta. Didn't mean to be thick but wondered if we all posted on the same day or something very co-ordinated. Will post tomorrow. Thanks HelenMN smile
