It never ceases to amaze me the weight of human kindness that’s possible in the forum. Having blogged on it in the past, (see Kindness of Strangers ) I’ve just heard of another example, though I need to keep it deliberately vague on request.
A soon to be mum, who’s been having a financially difficult time, was regularly talking in the Forum with other mums, when she asked about buying a cot. One of them sourced a cheap cot that was going on sale via eBay & another had access to a tool which automatically does the correct bidding for you so they could ensure she got it; but at the right price and at the right time.
Then the rest of the thread were moved to club together and buy the cot for the soon to be mum. Simply lovely.
