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!

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.
