From giving away 15 packs per quarter in 2013 we are proud to now give away over 1000 life-changing baby packs every year.
With each pack we also provide many extras, as needed, including safe sleeping spaces (bassinet, cot or pepi pod) strollers, baths, pumps, and more.
We now have five branches across New Zealand and we give away over $1,000,000 per year in baby items and that number is increasing every year.
