    I really wanted to help with this, Alora Gaidin, but I don't think I'll be able to manage the timing. :( With everything going on with us we're in a bit of a strapped-for-cash phase. I still love the idea and I'm so glad you're doing it.

    No worries :) I plan on doing another one for December like I did last year too, hopefully I'll be healthy enough and things will have calmed down by then too

    Hi I don't know if you are still collecting items but have you tried to contact places telling them your mission to see if they could donate items to you or gift cards? I think you are doing a wonderful thing and I am sure it will be appreciated by those who recieve the bags or baskets. Can you give the wishlist and link to post ideas? Are you in need of donations from us? Just some thoughts.

    I've been really ill for about 3 months and only now starting to heal up so instead of doing the 100 bags we did one gift basket for a NICU baby, but we're planning on doing this twice a year, once in July for his birthday and once during the winter holiday season. As I recover more I'll make another post planning for this winter so keep a lookout for it and thanks for your thoughts :)

    I'm happy to report that 24 out of 29 items have been purchased! And thanks to @Siera al'Cere I have a logo that I'll be adding to the bags so this is shaping out to be a successful thing, I am very grateful to everyone on Facebook, here, and Instagram for all the help! I can't wait to pack them and deliver them and I'll be sharing pics when that happens :)

    So big things have been happening with this, I got some really helpful people sharing it around along with my dear friends and thanks to all of them we will have everything we need for the 100 giftbags! Not just that but people are wanting to start having things sent to me for me to do it again in Feb for Valentines day so looks like right now this will be relatively ongoing :yes

    That's fantastic news Alora!

    Will you have a new register for the bags in February?

    The ladies group that is really invested in it asked me to add the things to the current one so they are in the same link as above :) this Saturday we had a packing party and there are 62 complete bags filling my house atm :lol I'm waiting for a couple stragglers in the mail to finish them up and we're coordinating the setup with the hospital on dec 24 :)

    I am going to be editing the first post with ongoing details of this project but in the meantime, if you would like to help out, right now the biggest thing you can do is give me a like on Facebook on my page dedicated to this project: https://www.facebook.com/davidsnightlights/ and help me to raise awareness of what I'm doing :)
