St Kilda Mums (and our sister branches Geelong Mums and Eureka Mums, Ballarat) aim to share the joy of parenthood and save the earth’s precious resources by joining with Maternal & Child Health Nurses and social workers throughout Victoria to meet the material needs of families with young children. We collect, sort and redistribute essential nursery equipment, clothing, books and toys to families in need. By becoming a financial donor, you enable us to help the rapidly growing number of families that turn to us. Your support allows us to meet the immediate needs of families in crisis, as well as plan for our long-term future. Your gift, combined with an incredible team of volunteers and generous donations of pre-loved baby gear, means that we multiply the impact of your support. We helped 7,383 families last financial year, the average family spends $2000 on nursery equipment – multiplied by 7,383, that’s $14,766,000 those families would not have been able to afford. Through financial donations, volunteer support (we have one part-time staff member for every 100 volunteers), and donations of pre-loved baby gear, we were able to give those families everything they needed to keep their children safe for less that $1Million.
In 2019 MyGivingCircle and UBank are giving $50,000 in grants to Australian not-for-profits. It's free to vote for us plus if you donate to us we get an extra vote for every $ you give, even more for regular giving. Please vote and donate to help us share in $50,000 in 2019.
