Fulfilled [Request] Top surgery post op items

31 Upvotes

I'm unemployed because of disabilities. Insurance is covering my top surgery. A big problem I have is they need you to sleep on back after surgery and I am a side sleeper that moves around a ton. I'm autistic so change in how I sleep is a big deal. My sleep is also directly tied to my mental health, so a lack of sleep means panic attacks and depression gets worse. So this is going to be hard for me.

If someone could please get this wedge pillow and maternity pillow for me off my amazon list I'd be super grateful. It'll help me stay on my back and be more comfortabIe. I put some other little things that'd help a lot on the list too, but the pillows are priority. They'll all help with healing and doing stuff with limited mobility. I live in MN usa.

Request [request] size 10 leather/fake leather converse

2 Upvotes

I have a event that I want to dress nice for in a few weeks but cannot afford the cost of getting the converse I would need. It is a dinner luncheon at my day program, plus I’d wear the shoes again for our dance.

I don’t really have fancy dress converse anymore as my old ones had to be thrown away due to fading / wear, and I am low income so I can’t afford this at the moment.

I’m in Canada, I wear a men’s 9.5-10 in converse (it is easiest to do converse, as I know my size well).

I'm offering this to anyone who may need it for job interviews, or court hearings, or weddings, or whatever is going on in your life that you need a decent suit! It's clean but may arrive wrinkled.

Request [REQUEST][Israel][WW]My Aunt with Down's Syndrome would love some Birthday Cards (10th year)

208 Upvotes

My dear aunt Masha has down's syndrome and every year, months before her birthday, she excitedly tells everyone she can that her birthday is December 1st. whenever she would meet people, she would tell them, ‘My birthday is December 1st”  And she would ask them to send a card. Masha likes to get mail and gifts, just like—but even more—than everyone else.

She is turning 53 years old but has the heart of a 12 year old. This is the tenth year that I am posting online for her birthday. The last year she got quite a few cards and was so happy to run to her mailbox everyday. She was THRILLED! So beautiful people of the world -- can we do this again??

She lives in a kibbutz in Israel for adults with disabilities. It would mean the world to her to get birthday cards for her 53rd birthday :) Masha only reads English, but any language will be fun and exciting. She is a fan of Hello Kitty, Pokemon, Tamagotchi, any Disney characters and loves animals too! But really anything would do

Thank you all in advance for this act of kindness!

Her mailing address (it is a PO BOX) is:

(line one) Masha Roth c/o Kishorit (line two) M P Bikaat Beit Hakerem 2012300 (line three)ISRAEL

 Thank you to everyone that sent and shared my post requesting birthday cards for my dear aunt Masha's birthday last year You all made her day so special! Every day, Masha would excitingly run to her mailbox to get her cards, she would then FaceTime me and show me the new cards she got that day. This is the 10th year that I organized this for her. Masha received over 200 cards last year. The coolest part is that Masha waits until Dec. 1 to open them all.

So thank you again to everyone that was involved. May we all be blessed to do something simple for our fellow humans. Thank you again!

Request [Request] Care Package

17 Upvotes

Located in the USA (sorry, can’t update the title).

Hi. I don’t know how much backstory is appropriate here, but to make a long story short, I’m currently the victim in a felony aggravated stalking case. My life has been turned upside down over the last two months, and things have been difficult, to say the least. I’m trying to live as normally as possible but between dealing with seemingly endless court dates for multiple cases and trying to keep myself safe (which is less of an immediate concern right now because the perpetrator is in jail, but may become more of an issue in the future) things have been really hard. I had a couple of acquaintances offer to send me care packages but they never did. I’m still not entire sure this is a good request for this sub, but figured I’d put it out here just in case. If anyone is willing and able to send a care package it would mean a lot to me right now. I have a generally good support network, but I still feel very isolated going through this, particularly because I don’t know anyone who has been through anything at a similar level of severity. So this is my formal request for a care package. I know some people like to make their own, and I’ve also seen some nice ones on etsy before. I’d be happy with pretty much anything at this point though.

ETA: I considered making an Amazon wishlist but decided against it because I don’t really need anything specific, and I prefer to avoid Amazon if possible. I’m not really expecting anyone to send anything from this, but if you are inclined to do so please message me and I can give you my mailing address. I’m not picky but to give you an idea of what I like, these are some gifts I always appreciate: flowers, good smelling stuff like room fragrance sticks or an oil diffuser with essential oils, soft things like blankets/pillows/slippers/socks, fabric headbands that won’t give me a headache, tea, chocolate/caramel candies/sweet glazed nuts (I have no allergies), plant accessories, or really any general self care stuff that might help with the stress and anxiety I’m experiencing over this whole ordeal.

Thanks for reading.
