Beds for Kids

OfferUp employee

For the second year in a row, we teamed up with the Seattle Police Department to make sure that no child in the Seattle area has to sleep on the floor. After delivering 300 beds last year to children in Seattle, we were back this year to double our impact and get 600 brand new beds to children who have never had one of their own.

Thanks to the outpouring of support from the community, 600 more children will sleep in a warm bed tonight — and for many nights to come. Stay tuned for next year! Smiley Happy

In today's society you more and likely won't fine a person trying  help an animal but swing people putting their time assure to help fellow humans.

As a father to be a 1st newborn girl, I don't believe in the MaMa being the only one that knows 99.5% - 99.9% of everything about the comfort of our child when she is born.

 

Soo... With that being said I have a curious question about bedding of a crib. It's called soybean matres, has anyone used it before? 

 

Please if ya can leave ya responses so that I can make an informed decision unto the Queen of the house thanks in advance all.
