|About||We are a volunteer-run charity that gives FREE life changing boxes (with everything a baby needs at birth) to families who desperately need them.|
|Mission||To ensure that all babies are given the best start in life.|
We give away amazing life-changing baby packs - like the Finnish baby packs but even more comprehensive!
They are given for FREE to families in real need selected by a network of amazing charities in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
WHAT IS IN A PACK?
EACH of our packs includes:
• an entire wardrobe of baby clothes, hats, booties, etc;
• everything needed to safely sleep a baby (swaddles, a merino sleeping bag, sheet sets, and safe nightwear);
• safety items like a digital thermometer, socket covers, smoke alarm, baby sunscreen;
• baby blankets;
• re-usable and disposable nappies/wipes plus liners etc;
• a sling or frontpack;
• baby books and baby toys;
• baby health items and toiletries like shampoo and bum balm
• flannels, towels, burp cloths;
Also included in each pack is a step-by-step guide to safely raising babies using our pack items, approved by the NZ Fire Service, ACC etc.
Our packs include items for children from birth to 1 year old.
HOW DO WE WORK?
Wonderful families and businesses donate baby items that are either new or in excellent condition for our packs.
We fundraise for any extra items we need, and all money donated to us is only used to buy baby items!.
Then we put the packs together and ensure they get DIRECTLY to the families who need them!
Our life-changing packs are given for FREE to babies via many amazing organisations like: the Women's Refuge, the Neonatal Trust, Red Cross, Barnardos, Wesley Community Action, Evolve Youth Services, Family Start programs for highly vulnerable families, and more!
The organisations who select families then work with them to ensure they get maximum benefit from the pack items.
ALL BABY ITEMS donated to us are given away for FREE.
We are really proud to be an entirely volunteer-run registered charity (Charities Commission no. 38963).
