Mum2Mum 2019

We are excited to announce the launch of our popular Mum2Mum campaign. Now in its sixth year, it’s clear that our Mother’s Day campaign resonates with so many of you and we get great feedback from those who donate, as well as those who receive.

Many of the Mums that we help won’t receive a gift on 31st March. Mums without partners, friends or family to recognise the difficult but amazing job they’re doing. Mums who go without all year round to provide for their children. We want to let them know that they are doing a fantastic job and we are thinking of them – local families helping local families.

Mum to Mum.

Last year we provided 227 gifts for Mums (accompanied by a handwritten card designed for Stripey Stork) and this year we’re aiming for 300.

 

How you can help:

 

🌸Donate online – Show another Mum you care by donating to our campaign fund via Localgiving. For just £5 we will arrange a mini pamper pack to be sent to each Mum referred to us. We also benefit from bulk purchase discounts to ensure your donation goes even further. You can make your donation here at any time until Mother’s Day (Sunday 31st March). And not forgetting that all important 25% gift aid if you’re a UK tax payer.

🌸Donate a gift set* – Pick up a toiletry gift set whilst out shopping. Or, if you have any unwanted items at home that you can donate – a toiletry gift set received at Christmas perhaps that you haven’t yet opened, or gift bags in good condition – then we can rehome them too. Why not organise a collection amongst friends, colleagues or a community group you are a part of? Details of times you can drop items at our offices in Redhill can be found here. Don’t forget to share your donations on social media using the hashtag #Mum2Mum2019 (and tag us). We love to see people getting involved and it also encourages others to do the same.

🌸Buy a gift from our Amazon Wish list – We’ve added some popular gift sets to this dedicated wish list, making it super easy for you to help as items are delivered straight to our office. A popular choice for those who want to buy a tangible gift but are too busy to drop the gift to us or don’t live/work in the local area. We’ll keep topping up the list as items are bought and we spot any good offers, so one to keep checking.

🌸Buy one of our exclusive Mother’s Day cards – More details coming soon on this but we have a local illustrator working on the design of our very own Mother’s Day card created just for Stripey Stork. As well as offering them for sale throughout March – they’ll be perfect for the special Mum/Grandma in your life – we’ll ensure that every Mum we are supporting receives one with her gift.

They are being designed for us by the wonderfully talented Emily from Doodlemoo and we can’t wait to see the end result!

You’ll be able to buy cards from our Redhill office for £2.50 each with all proceeds being used for our Mum2Mum campaign. Other local selling points will be communicated soon, so be sure to follow us on social media to keep up.

And if you’re stuck for something to buy your Mum/Grandma on this special day, then there’ll also be the option to buy a card for £5 (suggested donation), with a thank you note for buying a gift on their behalf for a Mum in need. They’ll appreciate that you were thinking of others, as well as them.

We’d also love to see the lucky recipient’s card standing proud on their mantelpiece by sharing the photo on social media using the hashtag #Mum2Mum2019 (and tagging us).

🌸Buy a necklace from Becky Pearce Designs – We have teamed up with local designer Becky Pearce Designs, who is offering two of her beautifully handcrafted necklaces for sale this Mother’s Day, with 20% of sales going towards our campaign:

1. Teeny Silver Heart Pendant £25
2. Birthstone Charm Necklace £42

She’s also conveniently created a Mother’s Day package, where you can add one of our exclusive Mother’s Day cards to your shopping cart.

The gift that keeps on giving

Subject to availability, any gift packs leftover after Mother’s Day will be distributed in the weeks following. If we are lucky enough to have even more left after this period, then we will be including them with our ‘care packages’ sent throughout the year to local families in need – as a gift to Mum if it’s felt that it will be a well-received boost at this difficult time.

Thank you for your support.

*Please note, we are not accepting make-up donations, as this type of item is dependent on personal preference and we do not have direct contact with the Mums we support.
