what a great idea, Im going to pass it on!
first let me ask you if you intend to try to potty train or think she isnt ready then what size diapers are you looking at? Also what size clothing are you looking for her and yourself? Give me a little more info and I'll see what is out there for you. Have you applied for food stamps or any aid? Knowing these things will help me in trying to find services for you.
in response to delayinamwallace... Hi,
I just wanted to offer what I can for advice. If you are out of work and staying with a friend, the one thing I would focus right now is on getting your daughter potty-trained. Its a good time to cut the expense of diapers out of your budget. Potty trainng is most successful when a parent does it and at the age of two, girls are usually more than ready. It should only take at most 3 days up to a week if you are consistent. In addition, if you sign up now for some free offers, you can give her a birthday treat for hardly anything. Just off the top of my head, I know you can get a free corndog at Weinersnitzel on your daughters bday, a free icecream at baskin robbins, a free kids meal at dennys and Kmart gives you a free kids pack with a goody bag and a $5 coupon. I know it doesnt seem like much but its a start in helping yourself and my hope is to empower you so that if no one offers to send you money for diapers or gifts or clothes (and 95% of the people here can't because they are just as bad or worse than you are) you can feel like theres still some things you are capable of doing on your own. I am including the link for kmart as its not always easy to find so if your interested, just click on it and register your daughter. If you sign up with baskin robbins, they will send an email with the free cone about a week prior to her bday. Also, if a chuck e cheese is near, you can get her 20 free tokens on her bday. Sometimes you have to get creative and I know its hard but even still the good news is a 2 year old has no expectations yet so you can make it a really special day without a bunch of cost. They dont know the difference. Try the Free section of craigslist for clothes, I know plenty of people that give away kids and adult clothes daily. Also try freecycle for free clothes as well. If potty training isnt an option due to your daughters medical problems right now, you can try contacting all the major diaper companies with a request for a one time coupon and let them know your situation. I have helped other members get diapers this way and it may work. If you want me to help you out with this just let me know.
sorry forgot the kmart link http://birthdayclub.kmart.com/
