We give free life-changing baby boxes to babies in real need!
Little Sprouts is an entirely volunteer-run charity dedicated to ensuring that ALL BABIES in New Zealand get the best start in life.
We give away FREE life-changing baby boxes to vulnerable families, containing everything a baby needs at birth, plus extra health and safety items. We also provide safe sleeping spaces, strollers, baby baths, high chairs and more wherever needed.
Our packs go to babies selected by social workers at our incredible Charity Partners. This includes: Heart Kids NZ, the Women's Refuge, Red Cross Refugee Services, the City Mission, Barnardos, Birthright, Family Start programs, teen parent programs, the Mary Potter Hospice, the Neonatal Trust, the Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Trust, Family Works, hospital social workers and more.
Each pack is made up specially for each family - we know that every family (and every baby) has different needs.
You can help by donating funds, sponsoring pack items, donating new or excellent condition secondhand baby items, crafting items, volunteering, fundraising and more! To sponsor a pack click here.
