I think this Pittsburgh Get Together has grown quite quickly. Since we're not meeting at a restaurant or anything.... and Gigi/Karen is hosting this at her home for pretty much a whole weekend... I'd like to ask Gigi/Karen to set up a PayPal account, so that those of us attending can donate to help cover her expenses.

What do you think?

I am all for it - I know how expensive hosting can be!

I agree, hosting can get really expensive. Since a lot of us are driving it's going to be hard to bring things that won't spoil or get messed up during travel. I don't want her to regret having us!

No, no, please don't do that, it's not a problem, really. Please save your money for the trip. I will need physical help more than anything if hubby is in China. I love you guys for being so thoughful.

Seriously... most of these meets are at hotels/restaurants where everyone pays for their own food and drinks.

We really want to help out with the cost too.

I have the day off and will be to your house early on Friday morning. =)

I think donations are a great idea! I would love to help with the cost of hosting the get together.
