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

Little Noah...

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!

Hello Everyone! We hope you enjoyed a wonderful 4th of July, especially though, remembering those lives that have served our country for us to enjoy the special freedoms that we have today. 

We always like to share the personal stories that make Pass It On, Baby! what it is. It is all about those reaching out for a "hand-up" and those who are able to make that possible. We received a note back in April from a mother of a special needs child, named Noah. Noah has a very special story and you can read his story here.

A little background about Noah..."Noah was born on December 23, 2008, weighing 9lbs and 10oz by emergency c-section. Noah did not breathe or have a heartbeat for the first 13 minutes of his life. He was taken to Children's Hospital in order to have a procedure done known as brain cooling in attempts to minimize damage caused by perinatal asphyxia. Noah's brain cooled for 72 hours after which time the hospital ran an MRI and and an EEG to determine the extent of the damage. Unfortunately, the results came back with devastating news. Noah had suffered "global damage" to his brain. As a result, the prognosis was grim. They said Noah would most likely never walk, talk, or eat or even breathe on his own." Noah is now almost 17 months. His mother, Stacy, had to quit her job in order to care for him full time and their family has to pay out of pocket for his therapy that insurance will not cover. Needless to say, this family could definitely use a little kindness in helping to ease the burden.

Although it took a little time, Noah recently received a box of Pass It On, Baby clothing. Here is what Stacy had to say about receiving this little box of joy for her son.

Noah received a very special box this week filled with love and help. There is an organization called Pass it on Baby that helps those that need help by finding families to donate gently used clothing to help other families. Most families with special needs children find themselves much like us - struggling financially to obtain all the items that are needed to assist our little ones. When you rub all your pennies together to get equipment or therapy it leaves little room to get the everyday basics.

Noah's little care box arrived with dozens of neatly folded clothing that smelled so fresh and new. The donor had taken a lot care and time wrapping each individual outfit up like a little present before putting it in the box. Noah knew they were for him as I laid each outfit out next to him so he could see.

It is policy that they don't disclose the identity of the donors. We will never know the person who gave such love and assistance, but my hope is they may read about Noah's journey and know how much they've made a difference in our lives by caring so very much about another.

I would encourage anyone who is discarding any children's clothing to contact Pass it on Baby. You too have the potential to brighten up a day, to help another struggling family, to lessen the heavy heart of another mother trying to provide all she can for her children. It is a great reward to know that you've helped give someone a helping hand. Please consider contacting Pass it On Baby today to see how you too can help.

Many have come to our rescue over the last year and a half. Lifting us up when we were falling, offering us a helping hand with no expectations in return, loving us as if we were your own. To all of you including Pass it on Baby, thank you from every ounce of our hearts. You have been such a blessing in our lives.

Thanks so much to Stacy and her son Noah for letting Pass It On, Baby! be apart of their journey as well as letting us share their journey. These are the reasons we love what we do. Our goal is to affect one family at a time, one child at a time with a box of love. Thanks to all of you who continue to help us in that journey. Please pass this blog link on to someone you know that could use a little help as well or to friends and family that may be looking for a special place to share their beloved child's clothes.

Make today a great one and Pass It On, Baby!

In love and kindness,


  1. OMG! He is soooo cute! What an absolute blessing! My thoughts and prayers are with him to prove those dr's wrong more and more everyday.

  2. This is SO great! I am also a special needs mama, and a mama of twins (plus one) and so we need a lot of clothes, but go through a lot of clothes too! When I get a spare minute, I will be writing! (it might take a while! - there aren't many spare minutes around here)
