Ways A Brisbane Mum Can Give Back

by Sally Foster (follow)
How to help those in need in Brisbane

In the BMG Discussion Group, there is always a kind Mum who is asking how they can help others. To donate clothes, offer friendship or support Mums in our community who are doing it tough.

Here are some ways you can give back, that are small but impactful.



The Brisbane Crochet Club meets weekly to learn crochet, meet other Brisbane mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
You and your family are invited to a Photography for Parents Workshop on Sunday 28th April at New Farm Park.
Donate items you no longer need

Donating pre loved clothes, toys and other essential baby items you no longer need can make a huge difference to somebody else. These are some places that take donations that go directly to the source:

On your weekly shop, pop in a packet of tampons or pads into your basket and donate directly to someone in need. Many Woolworths stores has boxes at their door to donate or you can find a complete list of where to donate, and what is needed, here.

Clean and Catch Up

It may not be a person in need, but our beautiful Brisbane needs our help too! Rubbish is a huge problem and can really affect our experience in the great outdoors. Imagine being at your local park and having your little one pick up a piece of plastic or rubbish and put it in their mouth.

So the next time you meet your Mum friends at the park, bring along a rubbish bag, some gloves and make a difference by picking up some rubbish. You can get your kids involved too and show them how important it is to keep our city clean.

A local Mum has also been running Clean and Catch Up Play Dates. Check out the Facebook page for more information.

Donate Blood

Donate your blood to the Australian Red Cross and literally save a life. You can find out more about where you can do this and the requirements here.

Queensland Milk Bank

According to Metro North Website, Breast milk increases the survival rate of premature babies by almost 70 per cent. The Queensland Milk Bank provides donated breastmilk to preterm or unwell babies right across Australia.

You can find out more about how to donate your breast milk here.

Volunteer

There are thousands of ways you can volunteer your time to make a difference. It could be reading to kids, cuddling premature babies at the hospital or spending time with the elderly. To find out ways you can volunteer, see Volunteering Queensland.
