Re: Ok im must be blind where are the Co-op links?
Requirements - You must have 50 posts and have been a member of DS for at least 3 months. If you meet the reqs, you may join the group by going to "Group Memberships" in your User CP .
M2M - its all about giving to other DS members whether they are in financial need or just need some cheering up. Its amazing that even the smallest gesture will brighten someone's day.
Keep in mind, there are NO requirements as to what the recipient is to do (or not do) with the item (not required to re-gift, offer it FFS, etc). We STRONGLY encourage members to do this though - help out another member or brighten someone else's day just as someone did for you. If you give, give for the sake of giving with no concern as to where the gift ends up, or how.
There are some expectations of the recipient though - no matter what, be thankful. Some items may not work for you or may not be the best quality, but it was sent with a kind heart and should be received by one. Be sure to post a thank you thread as well - even if the gift was sent anonymously, it lets the mama know her gift found its way.
Due to potential liabilities, we will not hold on to personal information (addresses, etc). We will only be managing NEED/WANT lists. You will need to contact the person you would like to send to yourself. If you wish to give anonymously, you may want to find a friend to contact the person for you.
Please do not try to get the address from another member without the recipients knowledge. Likewise, please do not share personal information you were privy to because of a transaction. This is a violation of a members privacy, she should choose when and how her address is shared.
To add your information find the list where your username belongs (alphabetical by username), just copy the template at the beginning of the thread and reply.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact one of the M2M moderators (names located at the bottom of the forum).
I just wanted to clarify a point regarding the M2M forum. This forum was created to help members and their family in need and to grant a wish or two. This forum is to be used for PERSONAL use i.e., family only. While we recognize that many of us want to help with charity, the M2M forum is not the place to ask for donations of any kind, even for ones in which you are in charge.
Therefore, any posts with needs or with wants that include items for any other use will be deleted. We cannot police which charity organizations are legit, even if that charity is your request for items for children, soldiers, religious groups, etc. This is for the protection of our members.
Please feel free to add an "ISO" in your signature. You might get some nice members who will PM you if they have an item that you could use.
