Christmas Appeal 2022
Most mums have nine months to plan for their baby’s arrival. Hayley* had less than 24 hours.
Having blocked out the trauma of a sexual assault, Hayley experienced a cryptic pregnancy - she didn’t know she was pregnant until she went into labor.
With not a nappy or a wet wipe to her name, Hayley was frantic with worry about how she would care for her newborn daughter, Daisy*.
But our community rallied around her, providing her with everything she needed to begin her journey into motherhood.
“It made me feel like I could do this, rather than starting from a dark place,” Hayley says. “It meant I was able to process it without having to worry about all those basics … I could give my full attention to Daisy.”
Hayley’s story might not be common but her need for support is. Please donate generously today so we can raise the $350,000 needed to support families in our community in 2023.
*Hayley and Daisy are real people and their story is true. Names have been changed to protect identities.
$350,000 by Christmas may seem like a lofty goal, but anything is possible when we come together as a community. We've come up with a few creative ways for you to help us fundraise!
We understand Christmas season is busy season, but fundraising doesn't need to be difficult or time consuming. Check out our Fundraising Kit for Individuals or our Fundraising Kit for Businesses and get started today!
