This forum is a donation only site to help people in the infertility community. I like to think of this as a virtual Goodwill, except the cost of all items is $0! (Man, that would be my sort of Goodwill!)
Fertility treatments are so expensive, so if you have any items that you'd like to donate to bless someone else who really needs it, please create a topic and share! You can offer up items that you no longer need, such as pregnancy gear, baby items, IVF candy, or anything else you can think of! If you are on the receiving end of a donation, please assume you will be covering shipping (unless you are local).
1.) Be kind to others. Rudeness won't be tolerated.
2.) If you see an item you'd like, claim it! These items are first come first serve. No holds (unless otherwise specified by the person donating).
3.) Medication Donations - Please read the following and check your state law regarding the donation of left over medication.
According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, as of 2012, at least 38 states and Guam had passed drug donation laws. States such as, Colorado, Florida, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, and Wisconsin, have created programs specifically for collecting and redistributing cancer-related prescription drugs to eligible patients.
Not all of these laws or programs are currently operational, and every state has their own, often strict, rules on who can donate and what types of prescription medications may be donated. However, here are some general donation guidelines:
In many states, only a health facility or pharmacy is allowed to donate drugs. There are some states that allow patients to donate.
Usually the packaging must be unopened and sealed, or the drugs must be packaged in individual doses (usually in sealed blister packs).
Expired drugs and controlled substances are never accepted.
In general, you cannot receive payment for donated drugs.
If you have additional questions about disposing of unused or expired medications, talk with your pharmacist or doctor to see what options are available. You can also call the FDA at 888-INFO-FDA (888-463-6332).
