You bloggers (and blog readers, naturally, are included here!) are a decidedly generous bunch when faced with a good cause... I remember being heartened by the response to the last appeal of the Sisters of the Gospel of Life for prams, buggies and baby-related items.
This time, the Good Counsel Network is in need of your generosity. They help women in much the same sort of situation as do the Sisters, only south of the border! They plan to have a Christmas party for young mothers, and are appealing for donations of small gifts (wrapped nicely) which can be given to the young women as presents (Joanna Bogle has suggested each gift should be worth around £2-3, more a morale-booster than anything else) items of household goods or baby-related items which could be added to a parcel given to each mother, and donations of money to help buy more such items would be even more helpful.
Send your donations to Good Counsel Network (Party Appeal), c/o 15 Maple Grove London NW9 8RD.
BTW, it sounds obvious, but I would discourage sending cash through the post, especially at this time of year!
