How we work

We are an online community of kind-hearted individuals who directly donate gently loved children's clothes to mothers who could use a little kindness. The wonderful donating mothers lovingly box up the clothes that they once loved their own kiddos in and send them for another mother to love on her children via the US Mail - Parcel Post. If you are in need, know someone in need or want to help by donating, please contact us at If you can't do any of these but would like to spread our message - thank you kindly! ~ Elizabeth & Heather

New Years Resolutions

Please note: If this is your first time visiting our blog, please click here to hear the premise of Pass It On, Baby! and how it all began.... Pass It On, Baby!

Thank you all so much for the wonderful messages for the PIOB family that just lost their 7 month old little boy. It has been a very difficult time for them and will be for awhile however,  they are so appreciative of all the kind messages and those who have been able to donate. Your messages and assistance helps ease the burden just a little. We thank you too for responding when we reached out. It is so amazing what happens when a community works together.

Being a New Year, so many of us have started resolutions for this year. Like the rest of you, Elizabeth and I have already been discussing our goals for Pass It On, Baby! This past year we have done some amazing things. Since starting up in May, we have been blessed to help approximately 65 children this past year receive clothing they might not otherwise have received. And as full time moms, (Elizabeth of 5 kids and me of 1 as well as 2 part-time jobs) we feel so blessed to have touched that many lives. Not to mention we have had approximately 60 or so mothers/families who have donated clothes as well. What an accomplishment! All thanks to you!

So, for the New Year here are some of the current goals we are setting for 2010: we are working diligently on getting a Post Office Box set up for our return addresses, we are working on ways to reach out to more mom groups so that we can receive more clothing donations to help those in need a little faster, we would love to double the number of children we are able to assist this year by getting our message spread to more people that help is out there, and we are working on finding ways to help with shipping costs especially for those who would love to donate clothes but may not be in a financial situation to do so.

You may or may not have noticed our new advertising space on the right-hand side of our blog that has "Blogher" ads. You can help us here. Each time a blogger clicks from our site to one of the featured Blogher ads, PIOB will receive a small financial credit for that. I will have to confirm exactly what that is - but know that by clicking through these ads you will be able to help support us to send out more boxes in this upcoming year. There is also our paypal donate button on the right-hand side  as well. Maybe you don't have clothes to donate or would like to sponsor a box to be shipped - any little bit counts towards helping a family receive a much needed hand-up.

So thank you for making a great 2009 and here's to an amazing 2010. PIOB is setting new goals to help this community grow! Tell us what your New Year's Resolutions are - volunteer more, lose 10lbs, get a new job, mend a relationship - anything! We want to hear what's in your hearts and minds for this New Year!

In love and kindness,
