I'm part of another forum (closed). Every year we do 'adopt a family' at Christmas to help the families that could use it... People nominate 3 families, and they can accept or decline, and people volunteer to adopt one of the kids. I picked a girl. All the other moms selected posted pretty much right away what their kids like, what their size is, what clothes the kids can use... she didn't. I've bumped that thread probably 3 times now and it's been a month and she still hasn't posted. She did post that her kid is in size 8 but it's getting tight. The deadline is in 5 weeks now, and she's been posting all over the forum. She has a son too, so I guess I'm not the only one who's stuck. I'm getting really annoyed. I've passed a ton of 20 or 30% coupons for clothes. Tomorrow's the last day for a 15-20% Toys'r Us coupon. At this rate I'm going to have to go to the stores to buy stuff full price at the last minute, especially if her kids are asking for specific stuff. So I'll have to get less. I gave myself a budget... It's really frustrating that the kid is going to be penalized because the mom didn't post that stuff in time. I got a couple shirts for dirt cheap from old navy while I was placing an order for my kids (in size 10-12), then the mom posted two days later, in another thread, that she can't find pants that fit her so she mostly lives in dresses. At least it was cheap so worst case I can keep them for Lisa in 6 years when she needs them, but man... So, what would you do? Send the shirts anyway? Keep them? Keep pestering her? What if she posts a week before? The idea of having to go out shopping after Thanksgiving makes me cringe. I don't think I'll volunteer for this stuff next time unless people have already posted the list.
