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

A grandmother's wish...

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!

Pass It On, Baby! loves to take the stories of donors and recipients that have been blessed through this online community and share that along with all of you. We feel that hearing these stories directly from the source helps to personalize how we are all helping another as well as connect us on a more personal level. Such is the story of a grandmother who wrote back to us in December about her daughter and 3 grandchildren who were struggling. Here is her note to us.
I recently received this website from a friend of mine at work. My daughter is a stay at home mom and could certainly use a helping hand. Jakob is in 5th grade and is a good brother. In January 2008 they welcomed a little baby girl named Elizabeth. It was quite a surprise as my daughter had several miscarriages and did not expect to have another child. Then as the Lord will provide, she had another son, Justin in March 2009.
The day before we heard from her about her family, we received a note from a wonderful mother looking to "adopt a family" for Christmas. She purchased items brand-new for this family. Her box of blessings arrived just shortly before the Christmas holiday. Here is the note back from the grandmother - expressing her appreciation as well as sharing pictures of her grandchildren in their newly received clothes.

My name is Mary K., otherwise know as Nana.  My daughter Nikki and her family are like a lot of people here in the United States…hardworking, scraping by on a shoestring and a prayer and sometimes a miracle happens.  My friend Christie told me about Pass It on Baby and how it helped her family.  I thought that Nikki could certainly use some help so I e-mailed and talked with the angels Elizabeth and Heather.  I let them know that Jakob, Elizabeth and Justin could really use some winter coats.  The immediate response I got was overwhelming.  When the box arrived it was the best Christmas present anyone could receive.  My daughter and I cried on her kitchen floor as we opened the box to find new boots and coats for all of them.  They even put in a pair of soft footies for me.  
I know I could not have afforded to buy all of those coats for them, but with the help of some very beautiful individuals, my grandchildren have had a lot of winter fun in their snowsuits and did not have to stay inside on beautiful winter’s day.  

This is the beauty of Pass It On, Baby!'s circle of love - the giving and the receiving is what creates our community. Please check out our immediate needs section and help where you can or pass along this site to those who you think might be interested in helping us continue our circle. As always, we thank you for being apart of our community as well as reading our blog. We would love to continue hearing from any of you - if you have been a donor, a recipient or are just a reader. We want to know your thoughts or your stories.

In love and kindness,
