Baby Bunting: Walk for Prems Fundraiser
For the past 6 years, Baby Bunting has proudly supported Life’s Little Treasures Foundation in their incredible efforts to connect families all over Australia and raise money and awareness for premature and sick babies through the annual Walk For Prems event.
With over 48,000 babies admitted to Neonatal intensive and special care Nurseries across Australia each year, Life's Little Treasures Foundation is an Australian charity which is dedicated to providing, critical information, essential support, and connection opportunities to families of children born sick or prematurely. Founded in 2005 by a group of parents, all of whom with babies born sick or premature, Life's Little Treasures Foundation understands the challenges that these babies and families face. Its mission is to ensure that all families enduring the difficult and life-changing experience of having a premature or sick baby have access to crucial information and support to make their journey a little easier.
To support LLTF and the incredible work they do, for the 6th year running, Baby Bunting have launched their annual fundraiser that encourages customers who visit any of their 60 stores as well as online, to make a small donation when shopping with them to help support this incredible cause.
Baby Bunting are fundraising for 8 weeks until Sunday 24 October, striving towards raising $250,000 for LLTF.
Last year with the help of their dedicated team, generous customers, and suppliers over the years, they have raised much needed funds which have contributed to the continuation of so many important initiatives at LLTF:
• LLTF delivered more than 100 NICU connection events both digitally and face to face.
• More than 800 ‘Precious Prem Packs’ that contain prem baby clothing, resources, and products were distributed to new parents with babies in NICU or Special Care Nurseries.
• LLTF were able to adapt their “NICU food from the heart” program in hospitals to provide nourishment to parents and carers to help ensure they stay well and healthy so that they can care for their baby/s. Benefits of this program include support for new parents and decreased feelings of isolation, connection with other families, increased bonding time with parents which can improve the baby’s outcome, and reducing the financial burden a family may be faced with if they were to rely on food delivery, takeaway or canteen meals.
As a cause very close to their hearts, they’re asking you to help raise funds by making a small donation when you shop in-store or online today, every dollar goes directly to Life’s Little Treasures Foundation. https://www.babybunting.com.au/walk-for-prems-2021 or register for the walk at https://www.walkforprems.org.au
