Nursing Twins Support Meeting

Breastfeeding twins?  Pregnant with twins and planning to breastfeed? Come to our Nursing Twins Support Meeting, co-hosted with La Leche League of Salt Lake City. We will provide support, ideas, tips, and resources for meeting your own breastfeeding goals.  Our La Leche Leader will go over confidence-boosting basics related to multiples, and then have time for Q and A.

Your support team (husband, partner, mom, grandma, friend, etc.) is welcome to come, too!  Babies in arms are always welcome as well as toddlers who aren't comfortable away from mom.

Thursday, August 21, 2014
7-8:30 p.m.
South Jordan Library
10673 S. Redwood Rd, South Jordan, UT

Questions? Call La Leche League of Salt Lake City at 801-251-MILK (6455) or email breastfeedingslc@gmail.com

Super Sale!

We know how expensive it is to buy new for multiples or singletons—especially when they outgrow things long before they are worn out! The sale provides our members and the Salt Lake community with a great opportunity to pick up gently-used clothing, toys, equipment, supplies and furniture. It also provides an avenue for selling your children’s outgrown items, clearing out your storage spaces, and earning some cash!

Our next Super Sale will be held on  Saturday, September 20th, 2014 at Reams Food Store in Sandy, 8725 Highland Drive.

The sale is open to at 8:30 am (8:00 for SLMOT members!) and ends at 12:00 pm.

Our Super Sales are held in May and September and are SLMOT’s biggest fundraisers. SLMOT provides all the advertising, reserves the location, and handles all financial transactions and in return receives 10% of the proceeds from each item sold at the Super Sales. Non-members interested in selling at one of our Super Sales must pre-register and pay a $5.00 fee. We accept cash only – no credit cards. Personal checks will only be accepted from club members. ALL SALES ARE FINAL.

If you are interested in selling at one of our Semi-Annual Super Sales, please review our Sellers Guidelines and Pricing Guide. Sellers, you can find a template for TAGS here!

Donations Request for June Family Picnic


Did you know that while the overall birth rate in the U.S. is declining, the rate of twins is rising! Having one baby at a time is demanding – twice the normal number of babies is overwhelming. We are asking for you help in supporting the special families blessed with twins.

We are Salt Lake Mothers of Twins Club (SLMOT) – a nonprofit organization that provides support, socialization, and education for families with multiples in Salt Lake and surrounding counties. Our organization is led by volunteer mothers of twins. We provide help and services including:
·         Mentor Moms program
·         monthly events for education and support for families, parents, and kids
·         a monthly e-newsletter
·         a lending library of books
·         a closet of preemie-sized clothes to loan to members
·         service projects for individual families in need

Many services that SLMOT offers are available free of charge and without joining the club. Club dues are minimal and are paid annually by members, but we offer financial assistance since so many families with twins are financially strapped. SLMOT has a partnership of support with the National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs, Inc. (NOMOTC). SLMOT is a group exempt subordinate of NOMOTC whose 501(c)(3) group exemption number is 3186.

In order to help fund these services, SLMOT hosts an annual fundraiser, a raffle held at our June Family Picnic. This year, the fundraiser will be held on Saturday, June 8, 2013. We are asking for donated prizes for the raffle. Because of SLMOT’s status as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all donations are tax deductible. If you are able to help, please mail donations to: Attn: SLMOT June  Family Picnic, P.O. Box 571144, Salt Lake City, UT 84157-1144. Alternatively, you may contact us  to arrange for pick-up.

We appreciate your support of our organization! We would be honored to show our appreciation by recognizing your organization in our member newsletter, on our website, and at the event.

Sincerely,


Salt Lake Mothers of Twins Club

Sub For Santa Project

We are honored to help two families this year with our annual Sub for Santa service project.   Please help us by purchasing an item off the provided list. We will wrap all the presents and have a festive morning eating brunch. Bring a pot luck brunch item and join in the fun. Babes in arms are welcome as always. Please email us and tell us what items you will help with. It will be on a first come first serve basis so pick quick. Thank you so much!!  Email us for the address of the brunch.  If you are unable to come to the brunch we would be happy to arrange to pick up the gifts before December 15th. 
Family A: This family has twin girls that are 14 months old. They enjoy educational toys and books. They are in need of warm clothing this holiday season. Gently used items are also appreciated.


5. pants/jeans size 18 months
6. shirts/onesies size 18 months
9. children's books
10. Leap Frog or V-tech innotab 2s
11. Toddler Toys
12. computer diagnostics for Mac Power Book
13. Gas Gift Cards
14. Barnes and Noble Gift Card

Family B: This family has a boy that is 11 years old, a 3 year old girl and boy/girl twins that are 20 months.  Here is the email that we received: 

I can't even put into words how humbling and lifting to my soul it is to have my community of mothers reach out and give my kids something I carry so much guilt and sadness over not being able to give them. I feel like there are not words enough to say thank you all so much. I will be forever grateful and hope to one day be in the position to "pay it forward"

(11 years old, in 6th grade)

 He has such a big heart, and he knows we are financially struggling and it was really hard for me to get him to even ask for anything concrete. To get him to give me a concrete answer about what he wants for christmas, I asked him just to make me a list of five things that he would like. He does not expect to get everything on his list, I just thought it might give people an option

1. Bedroom hammock (specifically this one: http://www.amazon.com/Ekorre-Swing-hanging-hammock-outdoor/dp/B002XPNMFU) I feel like this is likely too much to ask you guys for, but I thought I'd include anyway because maybe someone just happens to have one they don't want (you never know! :-), knows where you can get one cheaper, or would want to give an Ikea gift card for less so I could buy him one?

 
3. Legos sets from Space Police or Lord of the Rings

 


He doesn't have any major clothing needs

(3 years old)

 

She wants anything horse related, both realistic toy horses or My Little Pony. ** We have a My Little Pony bought**



She really needs shoes, but she is VERY picky about how shoes feel- right now she lives in a pair of the fuzzy-lined fake Crocs, and could use another pair like them, or anything that is slip on and not tight. She wears a size 9 shoe right now, but she is pretty close to a 10.
 

 

 (boy/girl twins, 20 months old)


She has a snowsuit. He needs one. They both wear size 12-18 month, but can also wear size 18-24

They don't really need toys, they're little and boxes ARE the toys for them :-) but I was hoping to give them each a cabbage patch doll. They really like the ones that are older kids and have hair.**We have one need one more**

Me?

My heart is so full of happy that someone is helping me give my kids Christmas that I don't need anything to have a happy Christmas.

But i know I'm supposed to tell you something anyway. :-)

Any amount of gift card to City Creek Mall (clothes!), or REI (snowgear and snowshoes!) or Target (everything else!) I would be so grateful for.

I always need house things that seem really expensive when money is tight; paper towels, toilet paper, dishwasher soap, laundry detergent, toothpaste, ect

Okay and now I'm going to send this, because I keep wanting to delete things because I feel so heavy asking for help (really, I have been staring at this email for two hours!)

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for any help you can give us.

Be well,
