RoundaboutCanberra – Every Baby Needs Love and Support Appeal
PLEASE HELP US to assist mums, bubs and families in Canberra doing it tough – see:
We need you, our community to be there in times of need, that’s why we have launched our Every Baby Needs Love and Support Appeal.
Unfortunately, more and more families are counting on us for support. This year we’re helping approximately 50% more families. We have the team, we have the knowledge, we have the know-how, to be honest, we just need the funds to be there when a family most needs us.
Let me now tell you a story…
We’ve recently helped a family. They were first time parents whose twins were born at 28 weeks and had to be transferred to Canberra for critical care.
The dad was already on reduced hours at his job due to the pandemic and they were struggling financially. Unfortunately, due to the babies and his partner being in Canberra and the commute, the dad lost his job. The family were already struggling to support the commute between their home-town and Canberra, and were not yet set up for their new babies.
We stepped in. We provided all the basic essential items for their new babies for when they were ready to go home, including car-seats, two cots and mattresses, a double pram, a nappy-bag, baby carriers, nappies and wipes. It’s what we do best in these hard situations. For a family, it is one of their darkest moments, completely overwhelmed with the situation and struggling financially.
Our team is there, every minute of every day for such cases. Unfortunately, we are seeing more and more of these. It pains our heart but makes us work harder.
We just have to, for the mums and bubs and their families.
With your support, for every $1 that is donated our organisation can provide $4.50 worth of items, turning your donation into 4.5 times the amount donated.
Our Every Baby Needs Love and Support Appeal has a goal of $40,000, to help 400 families doing it tough.
We still have a long way to go.
$20 helps fund a pack of nappies and wipes with a beautiful nappy bag. Just $5 from each and every one of you would help us get to our goal. It’s just the cost of your next cup of coffee but one that will help a mum in need care for their babies.
