It was this realization that led to the creation of this website - a network that I'm hoping will facilitate matching bloggers who can help to bloggers (or non-bloggers) who need help.
Here's how it works:
Visit this page and fill out this simple contact form. This is all you have to do right now. That will put you on my list of people who are willing to help others should the need arise in your area.
If there is someone with a need in your area, I will put the two of you in contact and you can help them out however they need and you are willing, be it laundry, pet care, meals, etc.
What the parent needs will vary on a case-by-case basis, but the goal is to make sure their basic needs are met as they walk through this difficult time with their child.
For parents with kids in the hospital:
If your child is in the PICU or NICU, simply fill out this simple contact form.
If there is a volunteer available in your area, I will put the two of you in contact. From there, hopefully the person will be able to help you with basic needs such as laundry, pet care, meals, etc.
Our volunteers will help you with your basic needs so you can spend your time focusing on your child.
