Would you accept help from a mom here on CafeMom? Like if your kids needed clothes and a mom offered to ship you some would you do it?

There have been SO many pleas for help here lately with Christmas coming up. I'm just wondering who else would accept help from a stranger. I've seen many women looking for hand me downs and stuff but none seem to want direct help from the women here. ONE woman however did accept my help and her little baby will have plenty of clothes. I would accept help from someone here. Most of the women are genuinely nice women that want to help. I think the thought scares a lot of people though... But here's the thing, ebay is dealing with total strangers and you have to give a shipping address. Why not accept help from someone whom you can see pics of and read about? How about you?

  • I would if I needed it. I think it's a matter of pride for some people. Pride would go out the window if my baby needed something I could not provide. On the other hand, I would also help anyone that I could. Isn't that what this site is for? Moms helping moms.

  • I'm taking breast milk donations from one woman. The only bad thing about that is the shipping cost is out of my budget and it's not enough and the milk isn't really enough either but hey..any is good. This other woman offered me diapers too. I haven't contacted her but she asked me to PLEASE take them. So why not? Free diapers, hell yea. Were doing not so good at all financially right now. I'm having to stay with my mother. Sigh..

  • You probally wouldn't like the shipping honey. It's like $30 something for 2 day delivery and $50 something for overnight. Most people use over night but i've heard 2 day could be possible too.
    I wish I was a milk cow. lol. I had anemia really bad and it killed my supply.

  • If it's going to help a baby then I would do it. Babies are worth more than $50 for overnight service. =)

  • I am a single mom of two teens and I am in desperate need of winter clothes for them. I would definitely accept hand me downs from cafemoms. I've come in contact with some very compassionate moms on cafemom, we all need someone to lean on sometimes. Why not accept help from someone who's genuinely offering?
