Babymum Australia Autumn newsletter

Welcome to our latest news

Thank you

A very big thank you to those regular donors that help keep us afloat. Your continued faithfulness is such a blessing and encouragement to us. It also helps us to plan our budgets wisely and manage our finances. Why not forward this newsletter to some friends who might like to be involved too? Even a dollar a day can be multiplied and bring great blessing.

Our new sponsor

We have also had a major sponsor come on board in the last six months. EL Conveyancing is sponsoring our Myday Friday program, enabling us to provide a creative, nurturing and safe space for young mums every Friday. We have important discussions on the couch touching on critical issues in the lives of young mums, offer creative activities, run parent-child play sessions and have engaging activities for the children every week. We also provide a light lunch three times a month modelling healthy eating (and maybe how to hide veges!). Jan does a fantastic job taking family photos that celebrate and value each of our mums and babies. Thank you to Erin and her team at EL Conveyancing for seeing value in our mums and babies and championing their worth and dignity.

Thank you to our incredible team of volunteers who help out with the kids, cook us lunch and record it all photographically!

The Launceston Girls Home Board has continued to support Babymum with generous lease conditions, enabling us to stay at the beautiful Cottage. This place really is a home for our babymums; one mum even remarked, “Look, Ella, we’re home!” when she arrived, actually meaning to say ‘we’re here’. While it might seem just a minor slip of the tongue, it tells us a lot about how she feels. How beautiful.

The start to the year has also seen some of our earliest babies start Kinder! These lovely girls are just two from our second year babymums and they were so keen to get started at school! They are off to a running start. We are so thankful to still be apart of these lives. Well done to their mums and families for your positive impact on those important years leading up to starting school. You are champions.

Where did the time go!
Beautiful Zalie and Marlee
Next time you see a young mum...
... smile at her and her precious miracle.
We can have a huge impact on societal values with this small gesture.

Celebration. Value. Love.

Fundraising

We will be undertaking four Bunnings fundraiser BBQs this year so keep posted on Facebook as to when they are. If you are interested in helping out, you can email Jen at info@babymum.org.au or call Ro on 0488996633. We will also be holding a fundraising evening in June. Stand by for more details of that. We hope you can come!

If you are the praying kind, we would appreciate your continued prayers for both the organisation and for young mums in particular.

Connection

We are always keen to connect with other services that work with young mums. If you or someone you know would like more information about what Babymum offers (perhaps a free belly cast for a young mum, a support group for pregnant girls, a parenting session, education support or tutoring or support group on Friday) please let them know or ask for some business cards or brochures. We also have posters and handouts available that might be useful in doctors’ surgeries, schools, community centres, neighbourhood centres, churches and other support services.

Join our team

Are you a fundraising guru or just love to use your connections within your broad community? Would you like to be an important part of the fundraising future of Babymum? We’d love to strengthen our fundraising committee. If you are interested, please contact us.
