5 for 500

We're looking for 500 generous South Australians to donate $5 a week to help 500 newborns over the next year.

Every day, newborn babies are born into severe disadvantage without the vital essentials they need to be safe and warm. They don’t have items like a cot to sleep safe, warm blankets and clothing to keep warm, or feeding equipment to get the vital nutrients they need to thrive.

Treasure Boxes provides families with all the items they need to safely care for their children, and you can help us continue to provide this vital service.

Every baby deserves access to good quality nursery equipment to allow them to keep safe during tough times.

For just $5 a week for one year, you will help provide an entire nursery set for a newborn baby.

We help people like Mary*, a single mother with 4 kids under the age of 10. With one newborn in a neonatal unit she was also dealing with the stress of unemployment and poverty, and desperately needed help to get her set up for bub’s arrival.

Treasure Boxes provided her with clothes for the kids, fresh bedding, and nursery items to help her give her baby a safe start to life. Now Mary can focus on the joys of raising a newborn.
