When a little means the world
It’s easy to think of charitable giving as something that is done by wealthy people who have more than enough to go around. But the most impactful gifts aren’t necessarily the biggest. Often times it’s the little things that make a world of difference to someone’s life. And at Baby Give Back our job is to help as many babies as possible to get the basics they need.
Giving comes in all shapes and sizes. Small gifts, large gifts, monetary gifts or simply a used toy or blanket. Every donation Baby Gives Back receives, no matter the size, helps a family who are going through tough times. It’s the small gifts that can have the biggest impact.
Whether we fall victim to domestic violence, an illness, an unfortunate circumstance, we’re not always prepared for the unexpected, especially one that cries, laughs and requires to be fed, clothed and sheltered. As much as we like to plan for the best, life can take a turn and without the community support it can be difficult to survive. Baby Give Back wants to give every baby in need a great start in life and we can only do that with your support.
That small donation of a used pram your youngest outgrew two years ago may mean nothing to you, but could mean that a new mum can move around with her baby with ease. A simple blanket or onesie means that a toddler can sleep warm tonight. When a family is struggling to put food on the table, a bag of nappies becomes a luxury rather than a necessity. Your small gift can ensure that they can have both.
It’s the little things that make an enormous difference.
Giving can mean the world to a baby in need but it also has spillover effects. One positive act can strengthen the community and encourage a culture of giving and sharing resources to ensure everyone in need has at least the basics to get by. We all have something to give or something to share. It only takes a small deed to make our community, and our world, a better place.
Children do not ask to be brought into the world, sometimes they are planned, at other times they are nature’s consequence. Either way, it’s our responsibility as a community to help where we can, and Baby Give Back aims to do just that - even if it’s only a little, the little bit can go a long way.
Our community is our world, and it is only as good, strong and loving as the people living within it, and that starts with us - you, me, our family, and friends. If we all give a little we can change the world starting in our own backyard.
It’s not the amount that matters, but the goodness of your heart to share what little you can with others who are doing it tough. A little sometimes really does mean the world.
