It's our mission to work collaboratively and thoughtfully to positively impact the lives of as many women, girls and children across South Australia who have faced, or are facing adversity – be it homelessness, domestic violence, food insecurity or poverty.
To do this, we collaborate. We have formed partnerships with social service agencies and nfp groups across South Australia. We don’t replicate the work of these important agencies, we work closely with them to add a layer of support, kindness and care.
Throughout the year we collect a range of material items including clothing, personal care, sanitary items, essential household materials as well as children's books etc. from a wide network of wonderful people, groups and businesses. We collate, package and lovingly distribute these items to the social service agencies who distribute these to the women and children in their care.
Further to this, we collaborate with numerous other local groups and charities who’s vision and mission aligns with ours; we support their initiatives, we spread their word, we roll up our sleeves to help them deliver their service and care. We know the value and the impact that comes from working together and the joy that comes from giving.
Throughout the year, we work closely with support agencies throughout South Australia to best understand what practical items will offer the most impact to the families who receive them.
Sometimes these items are essential items like warm clothes, pyjamas or new underwear and sometimes, they're gestures of kindness and generosity including hand creams, colouring in parcels or books.

Reading books is one of the most crucial of ingredients to anyone’s childhood, starting from the second they’re born. It’s part of every child’s night-time routine, or so it should be. Books are not a luxury, they’re a necessity, but kids around us go without these amazing tools. Some children don’t touch their first book until they arrive at school, aged five!Read more

I found myself in my mid-thirties, married with two young children. The unanticipated pressure of parenting started to mount. I began consciously leaning into the positive influences from my parents, who intuitively permeated kindness. I remember observing how they shared it with others and how it impacted their world. It was like magic, powerful magic that appeared to lift woes and inspire positivity.Read more
