£70 a week for one room 1982 in Richmond, Surrey, and a 3 bedroomed victorian house 120 miles away for £55 a week.
I never forgot my longing for a wooden rocking horse though, and to this day I really want to have one in my home, even though I am now of course too big to ride one, and have no children to ride on it either. Video - Bunk Beds for your Dolls. You can expand playtime for your child and her doll by creating a doll-sized room.
I know that not everyone can donate their time for volunteer work...especially during child rearing and earning years, but like you cited...donating gently used clothing and other supplies or writing checks to support charitable causes can be done instead. Yes you are right when you say you can help by donating clothes too and during Christmas a radio station did start a drive of asking people to donate clothes for poor street children and guys and it was a big hit here. There are animal charities (near and dear to my heart!) as well as people charities, children's charities, environmental protection charities, medical research charities, charities that support the arts and others too numerous to mention.
Items like pots and pans and even basic furniture items could be given to people who had fled abusive situations with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Many people think only of money or the volunteering of time when it comes to charitable contributions. Those early lessons of sharing and caring are absorbed first at home and then gradually taught by others as children are exposed to more of the world.
This crib comes in eight beautiful colors to fit a variety of nursery themes: Bahama Blue, Coral, Kelly Green, Marigold, Black, Navy, White, and French Grey.
