Big Group Hug

We love it when we staff from various organisations come and give us a hand at our warehouse....literally mountains are moved with all the extra pairs of hands.

Over the last couple of weeks we have had 2 teams from General Motors Holden. A big thank you to the IT Team at Holden. We would love to have you back again next year.

Big Group Hug

Dear Huggers
I would like to introduce you to a remarkable lady, Samantha Rowe, the founder of Memories of an Angel. Samantha has put these amazing packs together for 9 of our children in honour of her 9 babies this Christmas.

Memories of an Angel is passionate about raising awareness for Australian women and families who have been touched by Pregnancy & Infant Loss through the distribution of keepsakes to bereaved individuals and families across Australia.

Let's all support this amazing organisation.

#Biggrouphug9 GIFTS FOR 9 PRECIOUS BABIES | I’ve been having a hard time lately. Being home alone I have lots of time to reflect and whilst that is good, it’s also making me sad. Christmas used to be such a beautiful and magical time of year for me, I truly loved it. But of course it feels very different this year.
I woke up this morning and was already reasonably emotional so decided to wag Dance Class (I’m currently doing it several days per week to try and drop the baby weight).
I knew I wanted to donate to a charity again this year in honour of our babies. I usually support the Kmart Wishing Tree but thought this year I’d try a smaller organisation who are local and could really use the help. I popped a post up on a local Buy Swap Sell page and was flooded with wonderful suggestions. I immediately reached out to Big Group Hug, they gave me a list of what they needed, and I went shopping!! The end result is that I have lovingly created 9 bundles of gifts to honour the memory of our precious 9 babies.

Miscarriages - Oct 16, Dec 16, Nov 17, Dec 17

I honestly wish that I was shopping for my own children but instead I am finding joy in giving to others. I guess I have managed to find my Christmas spirit after all. Xx
