November & December charity drive: Children's gift appeal
A great way to get the kids involved ❤
Our appeal is aimed at providing a special something for many disadvantaged children/teenagers who will otherwise go without over the holiday period. We all have seen the smiles and excitement on the faces of children when they receive something special so we'd love to be able to provide that to children who are really struggling at this point in life.
Any brand new gift for children from 0 - 16 years (unwrapped) will be forwarded to a number of charities and women's refuges we support including the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation, Barnardos Australia, the Dandelion Support Network, Marist 180, the Asylum Seekers Centre and Mary's House.
Brand new children's gifts can include:
- toys for all ages
- books for all ages
- puzzles/board games
- items for creative play (arts & crafts)
- gift cards for teenagers (movie vouchers, iTunes gift cards, etc)
This complete cross section of charities we're supporting in our appeal provides support for children dealing with the trauma of neglect, domestic abuse and all other forms of abuse, disadvantaged children in indigenous communities, refugee children and children in foster care.
For anyone interested in running a non perishable food drive or donating gifts for women in refuges, we'd be happy to distribute amongst the charities we support. Our charity drive ends on Friday 15th of December.
If you have any questions, please email us and hopefully we can collectively make a huge difference to struggling families within the community.
Where can you drop off the items?
You can drop off at any one of our drop-off points across Sydney OR make an online order and have it delivered to:
Attn: Mummies Paying it Forward, c/- Storage King Rozelle, 10 Parsons Street, Rozelle NSW 2039
Deliveries can be accepted anytime between business hours. Please state in delivery instructions for 'Mummies' or 'MPIF' on all online orders.
What are the monthly charity drives?
In addition to accepting new and pre-loved items, Mummies Paying it Forward runs monthly drives for the not-for-profit charity organisations we support. The drives are aimed at providing the charities with brand new items, such as nappies, wipes, non-perishable food or sanitary items.
The monthly drive really highlights the amazing work of our 'charity of the month' and allows members to purchase inexpensive small ticket items that make a huge difference to the lives of the people and families we support.
