We create bundles of warmth for babies in need within our community. These are delivered straight to new mums by community midwives.
In the first few months of babies’ lives, it's crucial that they are being kept nice and warm. This helps them fight off sicknesses and gives them a fighting chance at starting life in a healthy way.
Sadly, many babies are being born into environments that are very cold - substandard housing with no insulation or heating, additionally sometimes mums just don’t have the funds to dress their babies for warmth.
Warming Hearts came about to fill that gap and ensure mums and bubs are given the necessary bedding and clothing to provide the very best protection against the cold, keeping babies hearts warm and giving them a fighting chance to stay healthy
These bundles of warmth goodness are made up of pre-loved, new clothing and bedding essentials with a focus on natural fibres - Merino, wool and cotton. These fibres help to regulate babies body temperatures, keeping them nice and warm.
How does it work?
We collect donated baby items from prem to 6 months. We source them from our community and sometimes buy them directly ourselves. The items then get sorted and bundles are created and filled with everything a baby needs to stay warm.
Bundles are then collated at our warehouse in Albany and given to midwives who pass them directly to those mums and bubs that need them the most.
Demand is high, so many mums and bubs need our help and we are finding it difficult to keep up with demand. You can help us by donating, every cent raised here will be used to help deliver warmth to the babies in need! We are completely volunteer operated, so rest assured your donation goes directly to the mums and babies, not gobbled up in overheads!.
How else can you help?
If you have any baby items you no longer need which are prem - 6 months - cotton, wool or merino in good condition, please contact us and we can advise you of where your local drop off point is.

Use of funds
All funds raised are used to drive awareness of Warming Hearts through Google & Facebook advertising, brochures and posters to help to increase collection points and clothing and bedding donations.
We sometimes will use funds to purchase clothing, blankets and wool to top up current collections to enable us to meet the high demands.
Funds also assist with occasional logistics overheads when required.
