Does everything have to be new?
We are all about recycling here at Baby Give Back, but toiletries must be new and unopened. A pre-loved toiletries bag would be great too!
What sort of items are your looking for?
Some ideas are toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, hairbrush, hair ties, comb, shampoo, conditioner, soap, tampons/pads, sunscreen, body and face moisturiser, cotton buds, cleanser, eye makeup remover, body wash, tissues, shaving cream, hand cream, lip balm, deodorant, face wipes, paw paw cream, band aids or a basic first aid kit. You might have samples or small toiletries from hotels or airlines that you can include.
How should I package my gift?
Please place your gifts inside a robust box and seal with tape. Please wrap any bottles likely to leak in plastic. Please do not gift wrap as our volunteers will check each donation.
How much will postage cost?
A small bag (to 500 grams) should cost $8.25 and a large bag or box (500 grams to 3 kilos) should cost $13.40 from any address in Australia.
What will happen to the things I gift?
Our volunteers will check the items to ensure we are giving good quality gifts and they will be distributed by social workers and maternal child health nurses to mums in need. Where necessary, we will combine your gift with other items.
I want to help but I don’t have enough items to make up a complete package.
Not a problem! Why not group together with your friends to make full packages?
I can’t make up a special pack, but I would like to help. Can I donate money?
Yes that would be great! Head over to our DONATE page to donate money.
How many packs can I donate?
As many as you like!
When do you need them by?
We need donations to arrive by Monday 1st May, at the latest, to distribute in time for Mother’s Day. We also help several mums in need every week so if you send your parcel in later it will still go to a mum in need, just at a later date.
Can I put up a poster at my work/school/kinder?
Yes, we have an A4 poster that you can print on your home printer and put up anywhere you like.
If you still have questions feel free to contact us directly email@example.com Thank you!
