An enormous thank you to everyone who donated to our St Kilda Mums Christmas Nappy Drive 2017. I am so grateful for the willingness and generosity of those around me and My Little Perfect to help others in need. We were absolutely thrilled to deliver over 2000 nappies and 6000 baby wipes to the wonderful volunteers at St Kilda Mums on 19 December 2017. Thank you to Haughton Stotts Real Estate for the generous sponsorship. It's good to know you can make a difference in the life of someone in the smallest way #giveback
CALLING ALL SUPERHEROES! CHRISTMAS 2017 NAPPY AND BABY WIPES DRIVE FOR ST KILDA MUMS
This Christmas My Little Perfect has set a goal to donate 500 boxes of nappies and 500 packets of wipes to the St Kilda Mums warehouse so that they can continue to help some of our most vulnerable mums and families. Some women are fleeing family violence, some are homeless or displaced. No matter the reason these women find themselves in this situation the common thread is that they need to look after their babies and without St Kilda Mums providing all the necessities that go with bringing a new baby home, life can seem pretty stressful. As a mum myself, I feel it's of paramount importance that we help out our fellow mamas, so that they can feel supported and like they have somewhere to turn to. Be a Superhero and help us reach our target and make a real difference to a mum's world this Christmas by making sure she has all she needs to care for her babies.

ST KILDA MUMS COLLABORATIVE PROJECT. MY LITTLE PERFECT/ FRANKIE & SWISS/ WH AMAD
It is great when creatives can pool their talents together to help those in need. This is what My Little Perfect, Frankie & Swiss Boutique Textiles and WH Amad Commercial Linen Manufacturers are doing. Our Melbourne based business's have collaborated to bring some joy to new mums in need at Christmas this year, by donating 20 organic cotton fitted cot/toddler bed sheets, to St Kilda Mums to distribute. St Kilda Mums rehome new and pre-loved baby goods and nursery equipment to families in need. The fitted sheets are designed by My Little Perfect, fabric made by Frankie & Swiss and manufactured by WH Amad.
This project started as a bit of a crazy idea and I thought surely we as these creatives can come together and utilise our skills to make this collaboration happen. So, very late one night, I sent Rachel from Frankie & Swiss (who prints all my other fabrics) and Rebecca and Jack from WH Amad (who manufacture My Little Perfect sheets) an email about my idea. I had nothing to lose, and the idea just seemed to make sense, we can actually all do this, its what we do on a daily basis, I thought to myself. I just had to drive it.
Within two days everyone was on board. And I am eternally grateful for the support of our team.
Jessica, the St Kilda Mums CEO and the donations team at St Kilda Mums are very excited about our project and we can't wait to make our special Christmas delivery, so some special little bundles can have sweet dreams at Christmas.
