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

Reflections of People.....

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!

(Before watching, please pause our song player at the very bottom of this page) .... thanks. =)

After spending the other afternoon updating our files on all those in need and also those who are willing to help , I can honestly say that I am emotional. Most days, we are so wrapped up our own personal lives and those of our friends and families, it hard to look outside of your own reality and see what others are experiencing. Today, I poured through notes asking for for their children, help for sisters, help for would be more than one person could allow themselves to feel if it weren't tempered with notes from grandmothers offering to make handmade quilts, mothers offering clothing from their own children's closets, moms in the midst of struggling offering to send the clothes they have, blessed mothers sharing what they's absolutely overwhelming.

Let me share with you a little of who the people we meet this way are....because they are among us all and often times blend right in. She is a single mother of three working all day and trying to scrape together extra money for the kids extracurriculars.....she is a mother going to school and working two jobs that has four children to care for.....she is a college student pregnant and scared and needs to get together clothing for a child she wants to keep.....she is a mother of a special needs child who left a career to care for her baby who needs constant help.....she is a mom and wife who lost her job when the economy soured....she is a mom whose husband left.....she probably is someone you know, you just don't know the intimate details of her life.

And the people who help? Well....they are the people who truly feel others pain. Who know how important taking care of your kiddos is important to our self-esteem as mothers. Who feel so blessed that they can't help but give back....who truly want to make this world a little better than what they found it. And you know what, you know her too.

The other day I was reading a little about Mother Teresa and I came across a quote that I have fallen in love says, “I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.” So beautiful, right? Such an amazing statement on what we all can be with just the littlest bit of effort. Spreading and sharing love. Many days the world seems like a crazy place to me....the emphasis in the media on violence and bad things happening. On the greed, the selfishness, the winner-take-all mentality. But each of us has a choice each and every day to add some love back in to the same world. To be the person that deep down they feel they can be proud of. Helping their neighbor and sharing what they've been blessed with. To bring hope...

Reflect today....on your blessings, on your gifts. On how you can give love. Maybe not through physical clothing or donations, but how you can be that little pencil too. If your struggles are deep, hang tight and know that there are people out there caring about you....right now. Wishing it weren't so tough for you...hoping things will change.

As back to school season approaches, many moms are struggling more than ever before. Sad and scared that their children will have so new bookbag, no new outfits....some with no fitting shoes. If you find yourself able to lend a hand, please send us a note......we truly need all the help we can get.

In love and kindness,
