The Mums behind Baby Give Back
I cannot deny that this year has been really tough on us. We love what we do and the impact we have made and continue to make for babies and families less fortunate than us. However, we have sacrificed our homes, garages, family time, stress levels, social lives and sleep!
For me personally, there have definitely been challenging moments when I have questioned whether I can keep going. What always gets me through is seeing the passion and dedication in my fellow directors and knowing the difference we are making in the lives of others. Every single time we give out a donation or receive feedback from a caseworker about a family we’ve helped, we get goosebumps and there are often tears. I can tell you with my hand on my heart that it is worth it. Our children will be better people in this world by growing up around Baby Give Back. We are teaching kindness in a tangible way and giving back to our community where it is needed more than we could have imagined.
We juggle our families, our paid jobs and our children who are still very young. We are so grateful for our incredibly supportive husbands and families – without you we couldn’t do this! This is also why our volunteers are so important to us and the understanding of our donors. We are looking forward to building our volunteer numbers in 2018 and working with more of you.
