In 2021our city went through the World's longest lock-down of all, so I am extra grateful this year that we were able to deliver on all 4 of our planned days: Easter, Mother's/Father's Days & Christmas Day.

We are so grateful for the corporate sponsorship support from:  Penguin Random House Publishing, Westfield Local Heroes Awards, Pinchapoo,  Officeworks, Grill'd Burgers, Bidibots, , Every Tiny Thing, Earlybirds, Urbanbar Design, Miracle Mumma, It's Okay Not to Be Okay, Memories Of An Angel, Candytree Earrings, and more. 


On Christmas Day our bags full of goodies will go out in 250 NICU Cheer gift-bags for parents at 5 major hospitals:

Mercy Hospital for Women NICU

Royal Women's Hospital NICU
Monash Children's NICU

The Royal Children's Hospital NICU
Joan Kirner Women + Children's Hospital NICU

+ hampers for the staff too. It takes a village to do what we do so THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU of donate, volunteer, pack and help in so many many ways, I appreciate all of it so much!

As with our previous years Dr Gillian (our son's NICU Dr) has been on hand to help us with delivery at our original NICU (our son's one at Mercy) and all of the wonderful NUMs (NICU Unit Managers) at all 5 hospitals who I liaise with in the hospitals are just amazing helping us navigate the new ways of living with Covid.
