When women and children come into Bonnie’s, they often only arrive with the clothes on their backs. Many women we see have little or no source of income and can’t safely return to their former homes and community connections. Of course, this means kids can’t go back to their old school or see their friends either.
Imagine starting from scratch – hiring removalists, buying furniture, new school uniforms… and the list goes on.
This is where the power of your donation comes in.
Here’s a list of just some of the great ways donations help families:
A dinner set, school books, a food hamper, kitchen appliances like a toaster or a kettle and more.
Bed linen, new school uniforms, a family outing somewhere special like the zoo, the cinema,
or a theme park, medications and more.
Removalists, childcare, a washing machine, fridge, higher education and additional study requirements,
payment for the shelter of pets, sending kids on school excursions and more.
One day, a family arrived at our doors to donate some of their kid’s toys and baby goods before they moved up north. During their visit, the Dad of the family announced that he was a barber and he would happily donate a few haircuts to the children living at Bonnie’s.
We asked around at the refuge and the families living at Bonnie’s took up this offer and he came back the next day with his scissors in hand.
It was so fun to see the kids so happy in the chairs. The Dad came back to donate again and thanked me for allowing him to cut the kid’s hair. He was truly moved by the experience and really enjoyed his time meeting the kids at the refuge. This was such a moving conversation for me. I could feel his appreciation and emotions.
