I will be having my engagement photo shoot next Friday and it will involve at least 100 or so latex balloons of varying sizes filled with helium (9″, 12″, 17″, 36″). It feels like it’d be such a waste to just pop and chuck them out afterward! However, I realize that if someone wanted to use them after the shoot, transportation would be a big problem.
Any suggestions? Or maybe throwing them out is my only option?

maybe you can put something on craigslist offering them up? i bet someone is having a party and is willing to come up with some plan to take them off your hands. i guess they would need a rental truck or something? might not cost them too much if they dont drive it much. good luck!

Call around to the hospitals in your areas to see if you can bring them in for the children. I am sure they would love them and it would brighten their day. If there is a children’s hospital in your area, I would call them first.

@EdmontonAng: You’re from Edmonton! I RARELY see any other canadians on the bee, let alone ones in my province! Call the Stollery and see if they’ll take them!

Thank you for the suggestions!
Very cool to see another Bee member from Alberta here :)!! I will be giving the Stollery a call tomorrow morning!

@noritake22: Hospitals do not allow latex balloons.

Maybe call a battered women’s shelter or something similar? They usually have lots of kids there and they could certainly use a pick me up. IDK

I definitely think a Women’s shelter is a good idea 🙂 Or put them on Kijiji.
I’m in Alberta too 😉 Calgary actually.
