Why host a baby shower?

Dandelion was recently asked to support 18 year old Marnie, who is expecting her first baby in a few months. Marnie grew up in the care system from a young age and has recently moved into independent housing. Marnie is excited about welcoming her new bub but is stressed about getting everything for baby’s arrival.  Although Marnie secured casual employment, her hours have been limited due to severe morning sickness.  With minimal financial support, purchasing items for the arrival of her baby is causing Marnie enormous mental stress.

With your help, we can provide Marnie with essential nursery items needed for her new baby’s arrival, including a cot, linen, clothes, bottles, and a pram so she can focus her energy on being well and connecting with her bub.

Together we can create a brighter future for the families we support as well as our planet.
