2017 Donation to Compassion Australia

Posted by Angela Daud on January 18, 2017 (0 Comments)

The Chilli Farm

A vocational class at a child development centre in Indonesia has given Compassion assisted children the opportunity to learn farming skills by planting chilli in a field. Like the best chilli, the idea was too hot to contain, and it has spread beyond the class and into the community.

For the month of Jan-Mar 2017, Ozbabybargain has donated $225 to the income generation project. Thank you everyone for your support!

Income Generation

Empower young people and their families to be economically self-supporting.

Three billion people live on less than US$2.50 per day (World Bank).

The opportunity to learn a skill or understand how to run a business is an important key to breaking the cycle of poverty. However income generating activities are not just about providing finance for a family. They are about empowerment—teaching a young adult that they can use their God-given skills to plan for their future. It is coming alongside a family and teaching them to break the cycle of poverty for the following generations.

Through generous supporters, Compassion intervenes on several fronts:

  • Providing business and finance training opportunities for caregivers and young people
  • Identifying caregivers who would most benefit from income-generation help
  • Facilitating income generating workshops such as credit management, basic business and accounting
  • Linking caregivers with other micro-enterprise credit institutions

You can support young people and their caregivers to be empowered through income generation training and equipped with important skills for life.

Ozbabybargain donated $225 in Mar15 to Samaritan purse school gift card. 

Ozbabybargain donated $245 in Dec to this Operation Christmas Child

This year Ozbabyargain is  going to take part in the Operation Christmas Child appeal, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief organisation.  Operation Christmas Child delivers gifts to children around the world who have suffered because of war, natural disaster, poverty, illness or neglect. These gifts are provided by families, schools and businesses from all over the world, and take the form of a shoebox filled with unused small toys, school supplies, basic hygiene items or clothes.  

From the month of Oct-Dec a percentage of the sales will be donated to this Operation Christmas Child. 

 

A short story about the Samaritan's Purse : 

About us

 

 Helping in Jesus’ Name

 

The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) gives a clear picture of God’s desire for us to help those in desperate need. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, “Go and do likewise.”

For over 35 years, Samaritan’s Purse has followed Christ’s command, travelling the world’s highways and providing critical, life-saving aid and relief for the world’s poor, sick, and suffering. As these victims recover and get back on their feet, we empower and equip them through ongoing, sustainable development that transforms the lives of families and communities.

In this way, Samaritan’s Purse fulfils its mission.

Every year Operation Christmas Child puts smiles on faces, bringing joy and hope to children in need with gift-filled shoe boxes lovingly packed by families, churches, schools and businesses throughout Australia and New Zealand.  

Every year millions of children around the world are touched by the power of a simple gift... a simple gift-filled shoebox that is a warm and real expression of God's unconditional love for a child in need.

More than 100 million shoeboxes have been packed and sent to kids in need around the world since Operation Christmas Child began in 1993.

 

Let us be a blessing through our shopping!

St Kilda Mums

Posted by agus daud on April 02, 2014 (0 Comments)

For the month of Apr - Jun 2014 , Ozbabybargain will donate a percentage of the sales to St Kilda mums.

Hopefully the money raised will be able to help buying new cots to help them reaching their target of 400cots 

this year.

 

Thanks for your support and be blessed!

 

www.stkildamums.org

A network of families that believes no child should go without the basic material needs - like a safe cot to sleep in.

 

 

Melbourne mums group St Kilda Mums have launched a campaign to help families facing tough times. The Cots for Tots campaign encourages families who no longer need cots to donate them to families facing hardship, and preventing them from becoming landfill.

Launched today, Cots for Tots aims to find 400 cots for struggling families by 31 May. Last year, the campaign located and donated 200 cots in a six week period, and this year St Kilda Mums are hoping to do even better!

Jessica Macpherson from St Kilda Mums says, “As parents, we want to provide the very best for our children. Through circumstances often beyond their control, some families need a helping hand. I know if we put out this call to action, hundreds of families will see what a difference they can make by donating their pre-loved cot to another family.”

If you would like to donate a pre-loved cot, there are a few conditions to ensure every bub is as safe as can be, you can find the information here. If you don’t have a cot, you could make a donation towards the cost of a new cot (it only costs $140 to purchase a new cot and mattress wholesale). St Kilda Mums can also re-home lots of baby and children’s items including blankets, breastfeeding pillows, playpens, infant sleeping bags, baby carriers … and more! You can see the full list here.

St Kilda Mums is run by a group of five mothers from the St Kilda area, and driven by the power of over 400 volunteers. St Kilda Mums collect donations of nursery equipment and children’s clothing; recycling cots, prams, bassinets, clothes and other baby essentials by cleaning and repairing them, and ensuring items meet national safety requirements. These items are then re-homed to families in need by social workers from hundreds of social welfare agencies in Victoria.

Make a toy donation - The Smith Family

Posted by Angela Daud on November 04, 2013 (0 Comments)

Christmas is a special time for families and giving, but sadly many children living in financial disadvantage will not receive a gift this Christmas.

The Smith Family's Toy & Book Appeal is your opportunity to help bring a smile to a disadvantaged child's face this Christmas.

The Smith Family has a long and proud association with Christmas. The organisation was founded in 1922 when five businessmen decided to deliver toys to orphans on Christmas Eve. This year, with your help, The Smith Family aims to deliver more than 43,500 new toys and 29,000 new books to children in need around Australia.

This gesture of goodwill ensures that all Australian families can come together at Christmas to share gifts and celebrate life. The Smith Family continues to provide opportunities for disadvantaged Australians to participate fully in society and we believe that Christmas is a time when all Australians should feel they belong, regardless of circumstances.

 

For the month of Dec and Jan, Ozbabybargain is going to donate 1% of sales to Make a Toy Donation - The Smith Family. Hope to bring alot of smiles to all kids in Australia this Christmas 2013.

 

Collected $208.88 and will go to The Smith Family back to school instead.

 http://www.abc.net.au/news/2011-11-11/life-at-a-cambodian-rubbish-dump/3659920

   

A friend sent this article to me and my husband recently re: Life in a Cambodian rubbish dump.  Our hearts are breaking after we read the article and saw all the photos. Like the writer said what he saw was "from another world", but that the people are happy.

With 34 per cent of the total population in Cambodia living on less than $1 a day, those in the dumps, at least they can find food and shelter. They earn about 35 cents per day for 14 hours' work. They are nomads. They move from dump to dump when the one they're at is full, normally every four years or so. Their whole life they are living in the dumps; they just move from one to another.

They are normal people. Most of the little children are aged between three and 15 and they are always smiling - that was what shocked the most. As quoted in the article : One day a little boy carrying a bag of blood asked me why the people in my country never smile. I didn’t know what to answer. While he looked at the blood he was carrying as a treasure to eat, he explained to me 'I smile all the time, I’m lucky. Today I’m going to eat this and tomorrow I will see the sun again'.

It is true isn't it .. when you have everything you tend to take things for granted and hard to feel contented. Whereas when you have nothing a small little thing like one banana found in the rubbish dump make the people/kids there feel very lucky!

Blessed are those who have contented hearts.

For the month of Jun and Jul, Ozbabybargain is going to give 1Percent of sales to Cambodia Children - UK registered charity, set up to help some of Cambodia’s poorest children and give them the means for a healthy and happy future.

The money collected will be reported in the website and Facebook at the end of Jul.

 

Be blessed and be a blessing to others in need.
