The most helpful things you can do for a friend with a sick child

I just found out that a friend of mine recently received the devastating news that her weeks old baby has contracted a serious illness and now the family is looking at months of hospitalization. I want to give my support and help out in any way I can.

For anyone who has lived through the experience of having a child with an extended illness, what are some of the things that you found the most helpful or appreciated the most?

Can these science-themed clothes for girls change the world? (Hint: they already are)

Svaha started as STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math)-themed clothes for kids. But after they launched, they started getting flooded with requests from women in science and tech who also wanted the clothes for themselves. (Good to know I'm not alone!) The Svaha clothing line is aimed at shattering gender stereotypes. They want to teach kids and the adults that love them that it’s okay to like anything they want.

And you can join the clothing revolution too with a pretty sweet Offbeat Home discount…
