Welcome to the Big Group Hug Community!
It’s incredible. You’ll love it here.
We’re so grateful for your support!
Every year, Big Group Hug provides 100,000+ essential items to cover 5,000 children in Victoria. These are things they may otherwise go without – cots, prams, formula, clothing, shoes, toiletries – the list goes on.
By giving your preloved items a second life with families in need, you’re also helping us work towards a healthier planet by producing less waste.
In the financial year ending July 2021, our Bundoora warehouse had saved over 61 tons of waste.
Help us continue to make positive changes for families in need and the future of our planet for our children.

Get your workplace involved
We give your donations a new life.
You give a child a better life.
Big Group Hug graciously accepts donations of new or pre-loved goods for children aged between newborn and 16 years old. We humbly ask that you only donate items that are clean, in good, working condition, and comply with Australian safety standards.
Rule of thumb: Don’t donate something you wouldn’t be happy to receive yourself.
We need your help making sure all material items received are suitable for their future owners
Please see the list of what we can rehome below. Click on the Category Title to expand. If you’re unsure whether a specific item is suitable or acceptable for donation, please contact us.
A hug for our planet too
We’re committed to ensuring all children have the best start in life. This includes preserving the planet for the next generation. A core principle of our approach is to upcycle and recycle. This way, pre-loved goods not only get a second life with someone who can use them, but it also prevents them from ending up in a landfill.
