Diapers.Com Provides Way To Send Supplies To Victims of Hurricane Sandy

Today Quidsi, Inc., owner and operator of Diapers.com, announced the launch of an online donation center to send essential supplies to families affected by Hurricane Sandy. Their new feature provides an incredibly fast way for us to help storm-ravaged families in the wake of the damage. Diapers.com has already begun to help families in need by providing 60,000 diapers, 8,000 bottles of baby formula, and 3,000 bowls of pet food through nonprofit partners like the American Red Cross and the Jersey City Humane Society and hopes that we will join in helping support our neighbors on the East Coast.

By clicking on www.diapers.com/sandy, visitors to the site can make an “essentials” donation valued at $10, $25, $50, $100, $250, and $500. You can also select whether to send specific essentials like diapers, baby food, formula, and clothing from Diapers.com; pet essentials like food and cat litter from Wag.com; or household essentials like cleaning supplies and batteries from Soap.com and Casa.com. 

Diapers.com’s recovery efforts have been focused on what they do best: delivering the essentials that people need, where and when they need them. 

“The Hurricane Sandy disaster is particularly close to our hearts,” said cofounders Marc Lore and Vinit Bharara, both New Jersey natives. “Many of our employees live in communities that remain impacted by the storm. We are grateful for their safety, but know there are many others still desperately in need of help.”

Diapers.com is working directly with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations and government agencies to quickly get these essentials to the families who need them most and to allow the greatest flexibility to the donor.  I am grateful for heat coming from my vents, lights that come on at the flick of a switch and water flowing from my faucet.  Our East Coast neighbors have lost so much. Let's rise to the occasion and help our neighbors.  Please donate at www.diapers.com/sandy .

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
