We start this new week with a desperate call out. We have a Mum and her daughter finally moving into their own place on Wednesday after being cramped in with another family due to domestic violence, and they have absolutely nothing. We want to help but because of Covid we also have a duty of care not to expose them to many different people and products, and not to encourage people to leave their homes to donate. So, we need to do a fundraiser and do a click and drop directly to them. This Mama needs absolutely everything but she’s […]

Can we please get a huge thank you for Van and the team at Furniture & Mattress Depot in Melton for their incredible customer service and fantastic discount they gave us today. Please see pinned post for more details. With their support we were able to get all of this furniture including another full double bed suite (not pictured), and still have enough left over for a TV, vacuum cleaner, dryer, towels, linen and other essentials. All of this will be delivered on Saturday to our Mama and her daughter who are moving out on their own, finally into their […]

What a busy end to the week! Well, our week never really ends. We just keep going every day to wherever we’re needed. A few days ago we received a message from our friends at Launch Housing asking if we could assist with a bike for a Dad who just wanted to go out riding with his children. We had previously purchased bikes for the kids when homelessness struck and the Dad just wanted to be able to have an outing with them doing something they loved. Riding their bikes! We were more than happy to oblige and were so […]

The week isn’t even over, yet we have already helped hundreds of isolated families affected by Covid-19 lockdown restrictions with a phenomenal number of donations. We have also delivered dozens of Period Packs, new underwear and other essential items. But it’s not just about the item itself. It’s about what it represents. It eases the burden and it shows people that others really do care, and that no matter what, they’re not in it alone. You, our followers, have done an incredible job making this happen. We thank you all so very much.

In the past week alone we drove over 750km picking up and delivering necessities to families and community members during the covid lockdown. Today’s haul was just as mighty as will be dispersed early tomorrow morning to those in need. Toiletries, sanitary, hygiene items plus nappies and formula are so desperately needed out there in the community by people experiencing poverty and who are isolated. The photos might seem like they’re on rotate but to the people receiving these items they mean fed babies, better hygiene, menstruation management and some much needed economic relief. Thank you for supporting us. Thank […]

The coronavirus is only getting worse in our beautiful city. In some areas it’s more concentrated than others. Brimbank council has seen a much higher number than most areas and this concerns us greatly. We’re now working alongside Brimbank Council to help make sure no one has to leave home to receive food, sanitary items, toiletries, nappies or formula. The stay at home rule is difficult to follow for isolated single parents who don’t have someone to shop for them, are facing poverty and are putting themselves at risk by attending crowded shopping centres with small children. Brimbank council has […]

Our super team of socially distanced, masked up volunteers, Dayle, Jo and Kate spent their Saturday boxing up the last of the items heading north to the Yuendumu community in the Northern Territory. A huge thank you to these three absolute super stars for giving up their time. We appreciate you all so much. Unfortunately as the coronavirus spreads and becomes harder to contain in our lovely city we have had to make the very difficult decision to stop all packing days until further notice. We need to keep everyone safe and we feel that packing days pose and unnecessary […]

The teens in our house have been kept busy during lockdown! A huge thank you to Luke for putting these bikes together so three kids who have been displaced because of homelessness can ride to school on Monday morning. Domestic abuse can affect any family, and we try to keep life as stable as possible when kids are going though it. Sometimes this means simply finding a way to get to school. And this is what these bikes do. A huge thank you to Dave, Juliana and the team at Launch Housing for making sure these kids aren’t forgotten. Senior […]

Take a look at this gorgeous scan photo! Today we got to visit Katie (Social distancing in place!) and deliver the wonderful gifts you have all bought for her and her girls. It was so lovely being able to drop everything off and know Katie now has absolutely everything she needs for the arrival of her baby girl. A huge thank you from us to everyone who had helped out. A big special hug to Angie and Geoff who have adopted this gorgeous little family and will be taking good care of them. A few words from Katie… To all […]

Can we please get another round of applause for Super Simon who showed up again today to take another run of nappies, formula, sanitary items, underwear and toiletries to the tower residents in Collingwood? Working alongside Rebecca and the incredible team at drummond street services means that we get to support hundreds more people in need especially in these incredibly difficult times. Simon is actually coming back on Monday to take out yet another load of essential items to these vulnerable families. Thanks again for allyour hard work, Simon. You’re one of the best 🥰🙏

A huge thank you to Simon, our superstar volunteer who not only shows up whenever we need him, but also keeps in touch with people sleeping rough and checks in just to see that they’re ok. Simon has been volunteering with us for over three years now we’ve lost count of the number of times he has been there for us whenever we’ve needed him. Today Simon picked up a car load of nappies, formula, toiletries and sanitary items and delivered them to the residents of the towers in Collingwood. A huge thank you to Ron from Drummond Street services […]

I know the photos are starting to look a bit repetitious but we’re so proud to be able to do this. Another 1040 nappies and 58 tins of baby formula for the tower residents in Collingwood. We’re also sending in boxes of sanitary items and toiletries. This is all because of your wonderful support and generosity. Covid restrictions are hurting many people. Jobs have been lost, not everyone is eligible for jobkeeper payment and some families who relied on that few hours casual work each week to get through are now finding it hard to manage. One thing is for […]
