This has been an amazing week for Pregistry! We made a public request for volunteers to help us with various activities (writing blogs, helping us with social media, giving ideas) and more than 60 eager and highly motivated women responded to the call. It is awesome to get your feedback and to partner with you! If you wish to volunteer, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org now!
“Freecycling” is giving and receiving items for free. We are considering starting a freecycle program specifically for pregnancy and baby equipment. We know of many women who have items that have never been used, or used very little, and that could help other women in great need. Would you find this free service useful? Have you ever participated in a freecycle program?
Pregistry’s monthly giveaways are getting better and better and this month it was a beautiful Fisher-Price Cradle ’n Swing! Were you one of the more than 600 people who entered the draw? The winner was John B., of Eckerman (Michigan). Congratulations, John!
