I brought with me 25 “Mommy and Infant” bags, large gallon-size Ziploc bags stuffed full of items for a new mother and her baby; tooth brush and tooth paste, soap, gum, shampoo, infant hat and blanket, baby booties, and a onesie, etc.. The items for these bags were compiled in large part by Sylvia Robinson at ECAC and Gouda Carter. After I passed out the first set at the end of the first week, word spread about the bags. From then on every post partum mother asked me for one.
Next time, we will make 100 bags!!!
