A woman named Linda receives a life-changing It's in the Bag donation

For Linda, an It's in the Bag donation came at just the right time...

Linda had fled family violence and was staying in a refuge when she received the bag. Linda also suffered from PTSD when going into baby stores due to a miscarriage. Linda was in tears as she shared that she didn't know how she would have gotten the essential items for her baby if it weren't for the bag she received.

You can help a new Mum like Linda, by making a donation today.

  Your donation can make a  big impact  

Many of the Mums who receive our bags can barely afford the basic essentials for themselves due to escaping domestic violence, let alone the essentials for their newborn.These bags take a little bit of the pressure off so they can enjoy the first moments with their precious bub.

A Mum and Bub Bag is so expensive to put together so it’s no surprise we never get enough bags to help the women in need.We need your help to raise $100,000 so we can pack an additional 500 bags for new Mums in need.

  A nappy bag and just the essentials can cost a new mum over $150,  even when done on a budget.
We fill each and every Mum and Bub Bag with all the essentials and more for both Mum and bub.

The perfect

 Mother's Day gift!
