Some people have emailed about difficulties with the Get Fresh site. All you need to send a gift certificate is B Mama's email address which is brooklynmama @ earthlink.net.
To order a gift certificate, go to Get Fresh, click on "Our Menu." You'll be directed to a new page where you select delivery or pickup option (choose delivery) and then date and time (choose any date or time--even, confusingly, a time that mentions "pickup"). Scroll to the bottom of that page (with the delivery, date, and time options all selected), and there will now be a box next to the gift certificate option. After you buy the gift certificate, Get Fresh will email you and explain how to send the gift certificate by email, which you do by logging back into the Get Fresh site. It sounds more confusing than it is. Honest.
I've never met BrooklynMama (now the more jaunty B Mama), which is crazy, as we we've been on similar paths geographically and maternally for the last four years.
I hope to meet her now to be of some use to her and her family as they are going through hard time. B Mama and her family (husband: L., daughters: Ping and Wen Wen) were in the process of moving out of Brooklyn for greener pastures when L. was diagnosed with cancer. As if that wasn't enough, they've had one housing issue after another, and in the middle of it, L. contracted an infection and had to be hospitalized. He's still hospitalized as I type.
If you don't know B Mama's blog, you've been missing out. She writes about adoption, parenting, and life in the big city with humor and honesty. Now she has bravely done the thing so many of are reluctant to do: she's asked for help in very clear and concrete ways. If you're not local, probably the easiest thing to do is to help her family with meals through Get Fresh, a Brooklyn establishment that can deliver ready to cook meals right to her family.
I've seen the blogging community do amazing things over the years. Please, if you're able, take a moment to help B Mama and her family.
