Please join me in helping to send every baby born at Southside Hospital home in something warm and cozy. Southside Hospital is located in Bay Shore on Long Island.They deliver about 200 babies a month. Most of the families who havebabies there have nothing to bring their babies home in. That’s where we come in. My group, Bella’s Babies, provides warm, handmade items for these families.

Have you heard of Joliprint? ( http://joliprint.com/ ) You can add their code to your template and a little printer will aper at the bottom of each popsting allowing you to print out a PDF of your post.

I have it in each of my blogs and it works great.
