#377 - Beds for children

Request: Donations for Beds and Mattresses / Bedding and Moses Baskets from a Wishlist

This week, we’re trying to give as many children as possible a warm and comfy place to sleep.

We sometimes work with another small charity called First Days, to help provide essential items for families living in poverty

At the moment, they are desperately short of single beds, moses baskets and bedding - they have more than 20 children on a waiting list for a bed. One of the children is sleeping on a cardboard box, others on broken beds, some on mats on the floor covered with thin blankets.

We have just ordered five single beds and five moses baskets to help reduce their waiting list and, with your help, we’d like to provide more.

We’ve set up a wishlist filled with bedding and moses baskets, and will use your donations to buy more beds. All of these items will be given directly to children living in poverty. Thank you so much for your help!

What We Need

1. Donations: We'll use your donations to buy beds, mattresses and bedding for children who need them. 

2. Bedding: We've set up a wishlist with some bedding and Moses baskets. To buy something from the wishlist, just click on the button below and you'll be taken to Amazon where you can choose an item. It will be sent directly to First Days charity to distribute to families in need (just tick 'this is a gift' and select the 'gift registry address' when you checkout).

Please note: If you have any second-hand items you'd like to offer, please visit First Days donation page here to check what they accept and how to drop items off to them. All items should be sent directly to First Days (we don't have the capacity to accept large quantities of second-hand goods). Thank you!
