It has always been our mission at Babysitters Club to create a positive difference in the lives of others. Parents, children, and sitters - we value connection, we value community, we value support.

We have been thinking of parents in the frontline and parents who own small businesses that have been largely impacted by COVID-19. Parents who may not have had a choice to stay home with their families. Parents who are nurses, supermarket workers, police officers. Parents who may be fearful about placing food on the table for their families in the coming months. We have been thinking of parents who have had to place a brave face on our nation or for their children. Who may have been stressed, but have had to place their own needs behind the needs of others. Parents who have desperately needed and deserved a break but have had to push through, because that’s what life is at the moment.

In this time, more than ever, the gift of time is priceless for any parent. Babysitters Club is committed to helping those who need us most. We need your support to make this happen!

*Babysitters Club is putting 100 percent of money donated directly towards supporting families in need. Yes we are a small business, but we believe in paying it forward and this is our chance to do so. We will return to our regular service once our nation is a safer place for both families and sitters.

HOW WE WILL MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF OUR FRONTLINE WORKERS AND SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS WHO ARE HEAVILY IMPACTED?

Once the virus is no longer a threat to our country, and we can be in close contact with one another again, our frontline workers and small business owners will be able to redeem their Babysitters Club voucher. This will enable each family to have a sitter come to their home and care for their children. This will occur once the country enters into level two at a minimum.

In addition to providing free babysitting, the wonderful Blank Canvas Catering and WineFriend are gifting 80 deserving families with a home cooked family meal and a bottle of wine to match it. That’s time, great food and wine. It’s like giving these families a hug without giving a hug! All money raised over and above will be provided directly as babysitting hours.

We operate in Auckland, Tauranga, Wellington, Christchurch and Hamilton, therefore will provide services to families in these regions.

OUR GOAL

Our goal is to raise $5000 to provide 220 hours of babysitting to frontline workers and small business owners across New Zealand. Every dollar counts so lets come together as a nation. Let's support those who are struggling, and those who have been New Zealand’s champions. Let's provide these families with the world’s greatest gift - time.

We will be in touch directly with the frontline services to provide our assistance. However, should you wish to nominate a struggling small business owner please feel free to contact us at hello@babysittersclub.co.nz.
