PRAM's Wish List

Dear community,

PRAM loves donations! But we can't love the broken / plastic / battery-operated toys we often get.

If you're looking to purge, here's our Wish List:

Wooden toys for doll houses
Play kitchen items / fake food
Puzzles (complete sets only please)
Art supplies: Markers, paints, paint brushes, smocks / aprons, coloring books, stickers.
Sand toys
Child gardening toys
Costumes / Dress Up / Make believe

If you have a large, well-loved but sturdy item, let's talk before you bring it in!

Thank you thank you.

Paid Focus Groups for Moms

Hello PRAM,

My name is April and I work for Focus Pointe Global, a marketing research company that conducts focus groups, product tests, taste tests, one-on-one interviews, and many other forms of research

Our clients are looking for individuals to take part in discussion groups to learn what people think of their products and services. We work with the brands and manufacturers who develop the products you and your family use every day.

While we are always looking to find people of all walks of life for our participant panel, we are especially looking for moms of children under the age of 18.

Your organization, PRAM,  works with moms and we are asking if you would be willing to share our information with your members. Paid focus groups are a great way to earn extra money and the timing is flexible to meet with a busy mom’s schedule.

I am attaching a flier for your review and consideration. We also have some cute “mom” business cards that we can send you if you would be willing to place them where your customers can pick them up. Let me know and I will send them to you.

Signing up is easy and free. We ask you some questions about yourself so that we can match you to the right studies and all information is kept in the strictest confidence. You are identified by a membership number only, never using your personally identifiable information. Please review our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use for more information.

To join, visit and click on the Join Now button. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming focus group or other types of paid marketing research with Focus Pointe Global.

Best wishes,

Client Services Representative
