Can you help? We need Cots....

When you bring your bundle of joy home from the hospital, you want to do everything you can to make sure they are cared for and comfortable.

A good cot is so important for babies to sleep safely. It doesn’t need to be fancy, just clean, in good condition with no broken parts and made to Australian safety standards (Safety Standard AS/NZS 2172:2003 revised in 2005 and manufactured after January 2005)

If you have finished with a Cot and would like to pass it on to another family to safely care for their baby, please donate it to us at Big Group Hug by contacting

We love our donors!

But please keep in mind that we are unable to accept items of poor quality – this includes anything that is broken, stained, torn, non-functional or unsafe. These items end up in the rubbish and the cost of this disposal is 17% of the money we fundraise which could have otherwise been used to purchase 100 bassinets or 200 high chairs. It’s a cost we simply can’t afford.

So when you are considering a donation, please look through the items and double check that you’re not passing on anything that will end up in rubbish. One way to help with this decision is to consider whether you’d give it to a friend. If not, please don’t give it to us.
