Brettyn's Lullabye - family2family is a non profit organization geared to help families of premature babies in the IMCN (INCU) unit at Women's Hospital.

Deadline to donate is December 19 so the items can be gift wrapped before Christmas.
To donate phone 1-204-880-9995 or Email  

Unused still in package:
Rattles, Books, Hand toys
Onesies and outfits - preemie to size 3 months
Brush and comb set
All items must be new as they will be used as gifts for the babies.

Used items that are accepted to donate to the unit (have to be clean):
Breastfeeding pillows and Infant bath tubs
Preemie to size 3 month clothing, knitted hats and mittens

The nurses and doctors that took care my son were AMAZING and I can never thank them enough but I can PAY IT FORWARD. The clothes that our children wear in the hospital are donated and not many people donate to these units. My goal is to get little packages made up for these families just to make it a little bit easier.
If you have any gently used blankets, clothing or anything that was mentioned above, I ask you to please consider donating to family2family.

Sherry Podolchuk is the author of Women Not Wanted, the story of a female RCMP Officer who experienced workplace harassment and discrimination.  Her topic is about finding your voice in conflict and details some of her experiences over her tenure and the strategies she used to cope with the stress. 

Her message is to speak up against bullying, to learn what happens to the victims of bullying/harassment situations in the workplace and getting accountability for those involved. 

He spent 12-15 hours per day at the McDonald's because of the free Wi-Fi. Tonight, a sex offender is arrested - caught using free internet in public to download child pornography... Detectives say the 25-year-old spent the past two years using the free Wi-Fi at the McDonald's... He worked on his computer and was a known regular of sorts in the children's play area at the restaurant.  

According to federal officers, open Wi-Fi - like that at McDonald's and Starbucks - is being increasingly used to traffic child pornography and the sexual solicitation of children - serious criminal felonies that are hard to stop because of the anonymity offered by open Wi-Fi.
