We are an online community of kind-hearted individuals who directly donate gently loved children's clothes to mothers who could use a little kindness. The wonderful donating mothers lovingly box up the clothes that they once loved their own kiddos in and send them for another mother to love on her children via the US Mail - Parcel Post. If you are in need, know someone in need or want to help by donating, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can't do any of these but would like to spread our message - thank you kindly! ~ Elizabeth & Heather
I rediscovered my slow cooker when our son was a baby and taking morning naps. I'd decide what was for dinner from our slow cooker cookbooks, prepare it and, just like that, dinner was done at 11:30am and I didn't have to do anything more but serve it up at dinner time! My husband would come home to a wonderful smelling house and I felt like a hero!
Now, I use my slow cooker when we have a busy evening planned. Life can be stressful enough when you have evening errands, but having a nice healthful dinner prepared can make all the difference. This is especially nice when your family members may be eating at different times. No more stopping at McDonald's on these nights!

I'm looking forward to giving this one a try. I'm not a fan of goldfish and have stopped buying them because of my concerns with the amount of food colouring and preservatives in them. My kids and husband miss them and will be happy I found a good replacement. I'll be sure to post on the results of my first batch.
Recipe from Making Due With the Not So New site ~
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
4 T. cold salted butter, cut in tiny pieces
8 oz. shredded cheese (I used "Fiesta Blend" generic shredded cheese - Monterey Jack, Asiago and Cheddar I believe)
1/2 tsp. pepperwater
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Put flours, butter, cheese and pepper in a food processor. If it doesn't come together into dough, slowly add water a tablespoon at a time until it pulls together. Wrap dough ball in Saran wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes to 2 days. Flour your surface really good and roll it out as thin as possible (about 1/8") for the crispiest crackers. Cut into shapes. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until browned. I put mine on a cloth while still somewhat hot to absorb some of the cheesy oil. Supposed to keep for a week in an airtight container - doubt they will last long enough for me to figure out if that is correct or not.
UPDATE: They got soggy pretty quickly. The thinner the crispier. Really need to have them in an airtight container.

Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.
