Seeking non monetary donations

United States
February 19, 2007 1:02pm CST
I don't know if this is allowed. If not please someone tell me. I am looking for donations of tiny little bottles. I cover them with clay and donate them to the NICU where my son was born. Bottles that are a great size are bottles that betaseron comes in (people with MS will know what I mean); ones that contact lenses are shipped in, even the single serve panax ginseng are good and even the hep block bottles they use to flush iv's with. I prefer the tiny ones (like the betaseron or contact lenses) but am willing to accept any donation. I hope that this is allowed. As I said if not please just let me know. I do this not for myself as I get no money for it; I do it to let the NICU parents know that there are others who have gone thru the NICU experience. Thank you. Oh and comments are welcome as long as they aren't silly. (per my warning silly answers will get a - rating)

I'm not sure if this qualifies or not but I don't have a problem with it, guess if it's not ok we'll get docked when they delete it. Sorry, I don't have any bottles that I can tell to donate but what a lovely thought and action. I pray others will have bunches for you.

I am hoping the fact that I am not asking for money and what I am asking for is basically trash; that they will allow it. I don't care if I don't get a cent for this post. I just don't want it deleted - for two reasons: 1- want people to see it 2- I don't want anyone to get docked Thank you for your prayers.

Well myLot has allowed this. Sadly, no one has stepped forward with any bottles. Blows my mind that with the huge population here at myLot; no one has what I am looking for or no one wants to donate.

I am sorry that I don't have any bottles to send you but I wish you all the luck in the world. I don't think that there is anything as bad as having to sit with a newborn in the NICU. Good luck to you & God bless.

Thank you very much. I know that I would have loved something tangible to bring home during those days to remind me that others know what I am going through.
