You'll probably find it difficult to find an agency or charity/thrift store willing to accept donations of used carseats for reuse by another family due to liability concerns about used carseats and their potentially unverifiable histories. :eek: You could see if your local Safe Kids coalition or Child Passenger Safety Technician-Instructor would be interested in using the carseat and bases for training purposes (you can search for local Safe Kids and CPST-I contact info. using the locator at ) and donate the stroller separately to another interested recipient, or list the travel system on your local Craiglist or Freecycle.:twocents:

Your local pregnancy resource center will also take them.
Our local pregnancy resource center does not take used seats. They have a CPST on staff and it's against their polices.

You could send te word around, post on freecycle, or in the classifieds. I bet you can look through the iso posts on craigslist to find someone expecting a baby that's having a rough time financially.
