"How can I help?"

So many have asked how they can help MckMama and her family during this difficult time and so I've set up a Care Calendar to help coordinate meals for the family. MckMama is coordinating childcare on her end, but you can contact me for the rest. Please leave me a comment in this message and I will contact you with more information on the Care Calendar as soon as I am able. Please be sure I can get in touch with you through your blog and/or an email address.

Thank you for covering my dear friend and her family with prayers!

  1. Oh how I wish I could be a part of that! ...but living on the West Coast is keeping me from these acts of service.

    Of course, I will continue to be on my knees in prayer, but I was wondering if there is an address that I could send something to. I know you probably can't give out their exact address, but is there ANY address that we can send something to so that it would eventually get there. Or is this a no no?:)

    Thank you!

  2. That is very nice of you to do. That is what I miss about living in a small town! Wish I could help in that way...but I will just continue to say our prayers over here!

  3. Do you have a way to post that on her blog as well? You are a great friend. Sorry I live so far away or I'd SO make her kiddos some food.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Well, I do live in the area, and I am more than willing to help. Let me know anything I can do. If she needs gift cert, for food, ect, I can do that, or whatever!
    Very nice of you to coordinate!

  5. HI Carrie-
    I am in. Whatever they need. - childcare or food. I'm pretty sure that you have my email- or you can contact me through my blog.

    talk to you soon!

  6. I'll keep up with prayers on my end. I would like to do another prayer vigil, though. Could you run it by MckMama? Thanks. I'll e-mail you soon.

  7. I've never before wished I lived in the Frozen Tundra until now. I would love to help MckMama since she has been so open about her family and faith with us.

    I'm with Cathy, is there an address those of us from out of town could send cards, monetary donations and/or gift cards to?

  8. I would love to help, but being in Indiana kind of limits the help I can give. However, I want to send something (gift card, gas card, etc)and was wondering where I could send it to. Thanks!

  9. I too live a ways away but was wondering if there is anywhere that has a food delivery service or would gift certificates sent to you to give care givers work? If there are people going in and out, I would be happy to arrange for meals to be picked up. Obviously I could not hand deliver them myself but would love to call in and pay over the phone or have something delivered. Do you have any suggestions as to how we could make something like that work? I know she has talked about grocery drive thrus and things like that. I am open for whatever you think might work for those of us who are not in close proximity. You can contact me on my blog comments or email me at jsguerra@consolidated.net
    Please let me know if there is anything at all those of us not living near can do for her. I know those things mean a lot to families with children in the hospital, we have been one of those families on several occasions. Thanks again for all you are doing.

  11. I'm in! I live a couple blocks from the hospital Stellan is at. Maybe I could bring something to MckMama. I could drop it off at the the desk for her and they could give it to her. I am also more than willing to make something for the family too. Let me know whatever is most helpful.

  13. Hi Carrie, Thanks so much for putting this together!! I love your blog, AND the blog to books you've made, SO awesome. Unfortunately, I live too far to bring food to MckMama's family, but would love to send a card/gift card. My email is chronicles of raw @ gmail. com (without the spaces, of course). Thanks again!

  14. I live here in the cities and offered on Mckmama's blog to bring her food. I have no idea how to email her about child care, but I could TOTALLY help with that too. I live closest to the hospital, but could deliver food to her family's house starting friday...but I can deliver to the hospital WEDS or thurs. My email is nikkersmarie@hotmail.com or you can comment on my blog...I don't really blog that often, but I will check it for you.

  15. Hey Carrie,
    I'm among those who do not live near you guys but would love to help out by way of gift card for meals, having something delivered and just plain send them a card.

    I'm up for whatever is needed. You can comment through my blog or Hilary has my email address (and may still have my address and phone # from a package I just sent her). Just let me know.

    Thanks for helping!

  17. I would like to send her/the family a card and some meal cards. But I was wondering if you could also give us a list of the nearest places she would be able to get to.

  44. Carrie,
    I live in Lakeville. I could send a meal that maybe they could freeze for whenever, get groceries, send a gift card, have a meal delivered to the hospital (my dear friend is a nurse up at Children's). My two oldest kiddos are in school during the day and I'm home with my son so I'm pretty available to run. My e-mail is anwilkie@charter.net. Let me know. Thanks.

  47. Hi, how great that they have friends like you. Wish I could help in person but logistically impossible.

    Didn't know if you were aware of a website that generates meal calendars where others can go in and sign up for their date. It is awesome. I used it in helping friends who had been through a fire.

  50. Thanks Carrie for doing this for Jennifer...you're a wonderful friend. I think I speak for most of us "out-of-staters" when I say that we'd be more than willing to make a small donation towards the cost of food, if you could give us a PO box or a link to pay it through...just throwing it out there.

    Again, thank you!

  57. i know that the problem of stellan's diaper rash is low on the priority list, but i thought i might be able to help...when we had horrible diaper rash due to stress/too many meds, we used equal parts liquid mylanta and desitin in the tub (any THICK paste with zinc oxide will do). it makes a huge mess, but the antacid in the mylanta cuts the burn on their little bums and and the thick cream helps it stay on.

    also, i would like to send them a card or something if you would let me know where to send it.

Please let me know where to send things for them and how to help. I would also like to send some "fun" stuff for the mckids to help keep them busy...little hands are ALWAYS busy!

    I would love to bring them a meal or anything they need. We've spent time at Children's Hospitals and can certainly understand the stress they are under and the prayers they need

    Please email me at:
    ahsauerbrey1@msn.com

    My prayers and blessings to you!

    Thank you so much!!!

  109. Carrie,

    What a wonderful friend you are to Jennifer and family! They are so lucky to have you and the many others who have offered help in their time of need! I worked with Jennifer at Excelsior Elementary several years ago, but am a stay at home mom now and would love to help in any way I can. I could make a couple meals, pick up groceries, run errands, or send money/gift cards. Let me know what works best.
    Please send Jennifer our love and we are constantly praying for Stellan and for her and Israel to remain strong through this challenging time with their precious baby boy!

  115. I'm in the northern suburbs of Minneapolis, but am home during the days, so if there is anything I can do, let me know. I am willing to deliver a meal or two, run errands, etc. I also am easily able to get to the hospital, so I could deliver something to MckMama there as well. God has really pressed this family on my heart, so I want to help in any way I can. Thanks for coordinating things, I am sure it is a HUGE task.

  118. Hi Carrie, My name is Aubrey and My daughter Stella plays with Small Fry in the Mops - if you have any holes in your schedule or think she could use some girl time I am very available to have her come play or us come to her or all of the kiddos for that matter. My Second daughter is on the same schedule at the preschool with Big Mac so you'll know how that would interfere, but other than that a lot of my day is free.

    Please contact me if I can help!

  121. I can't tell you how much I appreciate what you're doing for J and her family. It's absolutely awesome! This sort of love is what the body of Christ should be known for! Thanks for setting such a great example!

    I'm in central MN and probably wouldn't be able to actually bring them a meal, but I'd love to send a giftcard. When you have time would you email me a mailing address? Thank you! Blessings!

  130. Hey Carrie - I have become a friend of MckMama over the past few months and am always willing to lend a helping hand. I live in the Lone Star State so I can't offer any childcare or ready made food to offer but I will do what I can. I was in contact with Hilary while Stellan was battling RSV and sent a care package to the family of stuff they like. If that would be helpful I could do that, but if something else is really needed, just let me know. Please contact me at jenoglv@yahoo.com for any suggestions. Thanks. Jennifer

  133. Carrie,

    What a great idea. I SO wish I was local so I could help out in person. Since that's not possible, I'd like to be able to send something. If you have an address where I could do that, I'd love it!

    (My profile has my email address.)

  137. I'm not sure where the MckFamily lives, but I'm in Northern Michigan. While I consider this a frozen tundra at times, I doubt they are in my area, so could you please provide some sort of address to send a more personal letter or card of encouragement? I just started a blog at the inspiration of you, MckMama, and so many others I've found through these pages. I'll have to see where that leads...kind of confused at the moment :)
    Thank you in advance for your help!! You are such a blessing to the family, as well as families struggling to find a way to help. Also, if you know of specific needs or wants, could you please pass those along as well?
    Thank you so much!

  142. Hi,
    I live in Birmingham, AL and cannot make it there in person but I would love to help if I can. Is there a hotel nearby that maybe I could reserve a night for Mckmamma to stay? It seems like one of the hardest things for her is sleep. Do you know if there is any type of facility like that around? Our medical center has a Courtyard right inside the hospital. Just a thought. Please let me know if I can help. Thanks.

  143. I am leaving this here- not sure you are still checking it, I have conntacted the Sheraton to try to set something up where people from all over could call and donate what they are able (maybe not a whole night) towards nights stays, they have called back saying that they are trying to get in touch with J about what she would like to do. we would like to help, but don't all have enought for a whole night. hoping that you can pass this message along, and maybe you know of a better way to collect full nights. TIA
