Our Campaigns

Throughout the year, we work closely with support agencies and non-profit organisations throughout South Australia. We do not replicate the work of these important agencies - instead, we work closely with them to add a meaningful layer of tailored support and kindness for those who are in their program.

We regularly ask two important questions; firstly, what is it that these women and their children most need? Secondly, what is it that they would most like that will bring them some light and joy?

We aim to relieve some of the anxiety by providing selected vital goods like food or clothing - and we also aim to bring happiness and joy by gifting beauty & self-care parcels, as well as books, craft and educational toys for children.

Since 2014, we have delivered more than thirty campaigns & events, we have transformed Transition Housing environments, established the MumKIND Education Fund and contributed to education & employment programs. We have donated 100,000+ material items directly to families in need, we have supported more than 8,000 families and most recently we have enrolled thirty local children in the Playford10 co-curricular programs in Elizabeth.

We run a variety of campaigns throughout the year and welcome your contributions via our network of drop-off locations.

Brilliant Books 2019

August – December 2019

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!

Summer Essentials

December 2017 – January 2018

Kitchen Tea

January – May 2017

Mother’s Day will be celebrated on Sunday 14 May 2017... Mums across the country will be lavished with gifts and have a delicious breakfast presented to them, or a nice home-cooked dinner in the evening. But….. too many Mum’s, will go entirely without reward, or celebration & certainly they’ll go without a lovingly prepared home-cooked meal. Some families don’t & cannot produce home-cooked food because they simply don’t have the essentials to do so; they don’t have chopping boards, wooden spoons and mixing bowls etc.
