Similac checks

This is an e-mail from Alicia about the formula checks, for anyone that is interested!

To anyone that is interested in contributing formula checks to Matt, please email me at and I will give you my mailing address and I can forward onto Matt.Here is how you get these checks. The formula companies, Similac, Enfamil, Goodstart, etc. will give family members of infants checks for formula. Grandparents and other family members can sign up also - limit one per household (not just parents). A lot of moms on message boards will trade their checks of the brands they are not using, so I would encourage you to sign up at multiple websites so you can trade for Similac checks if you frequent any message boards.
Similac website
Enfamil website
Nestle Good Start website


Here is where we are at:

1. I have contacted Abbott Laboratories, the makers of Similac (Madeline's formula) they are willing to donate a few cases to Matt...still trying to get more. Also, if you receive any formula checks I will have information for you on how to forward them on so they can get to Matt.
2. We are in the process of contacting Pampers and Huggies to see if there are any donation potentials there.
3. I am looking into donating frequent flyer miles
4. I am also working on a few "tricks" that I have up my sleeve.

What else can we do?!?

Star Trib article

Here is the article that the Star Trib did on Matt, Liz and Madeline.

Let's get Started

Hey everyone! I started this blog for everyone that wants to help Matt and Madeline Logelin. We are just in the brainstorming phase, so the more ideas the better! Let's see if we can come up with a "Big Give" for them.

So far Alicia came up with the Formula idea. Madeline is currently taking Similac Neosure and I have contacted Abbott Laboratories (who makes Similac) to see if they would want to help out with our project here. We can also collect checks for Similac if people have them.

So let's get the juices flowing...what else can we do?
