SUPPORTERS
Donate - Rehome - Reuse
WELCOME
Welcome   to   Baby2Baby!   Based   in   East   Sussex,   we   are   a   volunteer   run   charitable   group   with   the   primary   aim   of   supporting   local   families   in   need   through gifting   them   with   new   and   used   baby   clothes   and   items.      To   do   this,   we   need   your   support!      Whether   it   be   through   direct   clothing   or   item   donations, holding a fundraiser or volunteering with us - there are plenty of ways you can get involved. For all of our latest news and events, please keep in touch via our social media accounts… Thank you! Hannah & Leila
WHAT WE DO
We   collect   donations   of   baby   clothing   and   equipment   from   local   families,   and   once   checked   for   quality   and   safety,   redistribute   them   to   families   in   need within East Sussex. We   ask   that   donated   items   are   of   excellent   quality;   items   you   would   feel   happy   to   use   with   either   your   own   child,   or   those   you   care   about.   This   is because   we   want   families   to   feel   they   have   received   a   gift   from   the   community   as   opposed   to   a   handout.   All   donations   we   receive   will   be   checked   with great care for quality and safety standards before being passed on to their new home. Financial donations will be used to purchase items that cannot be re-used, such as mattresses, bottle teats and car seats. Whilst   we   don’t   work   with   families   directly,   requests   for   items   are   made   on   the   behalf   of   families   by   professionals   in   East   Sussex   including   Health Visitors, Children’s Centres, maternity wards and Social Workers. Requests for items will then be met through items we have in stock, or through an appeal for specific items via our social media accounts.

DONATIONS
Donate items
When   your   baby   outgrows   their   clothes   and   you   have   equipment   that   is   no   longer   needed,   instead   of   hiding   them   away   in   the   loft,   your   donations   can   be given to us and allocated to a family who needs them.  We   ask   that   donated   items   are   of   excellent   quality;   items   you   would   feel   happy   to   use   with   either   your   own   child,   or   those   you   care   about.   This   is because   we   want   families   to   feel   they   have   received   a   gift   from   the   community   as   opposed   to   a   handout.   All   donations   we   receive   will   be   checked   with great care for quality and safety standards before being passed on to their new home.  Due   to   health   and   safety   standards   there   are   certain   items   we   cannot   accept,   such   as   car   seats   and   mattresses.   Before   donating   please   refer   to   our Donation Guidelines & Safety Checklist     to ensure we can take the item. We’ve   created   an   Amazon   Wishlist     as   an   additional   way   for   you   to   support   us.   Whilst   cash   will   always   be   needed   and   can   be   used   flexibly   to   help   us achieve   our   vision,   we   appreciate   that   some   people   like   to   see   exactly   where   their   money   is   going.   The   wishlist   has   a   variety   of   items   that   will   be delivered to us before being gifted to local families in need.

Donate Money
There   are   several   items   we   cannot   rehome   that   are   still   needed   by   families,   for   example,   mattresses,   car   seats,   and   bottle   teats.   We   are   hugely   grateful for   cash   donations   which   enable   us   to   provide   these   items.   Cash   donations   also   support   the   costs   of   our   behind   the   scenes   resources,   such   as   storage space and equipment. Either one off or monthly cash donations can be made through our Local Giving account.
