Make A Mother’s Day with a donation.to St Kilda Mums

If your Mum's the generous type, why not make a donation in her name to St Kilda Mums? There are a few different ways that you can help. A financial donation of $50 will help provide support to someone at potential risk of domestic violence and/or homelessness. You can also put together a gift pack to donate! The charity is asking for toiletries bags containing toothbrushes, toothpaste, hairbrushes, hair ties, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, tampons/pads, sunscreen, body and face moisturiser, cleanser, tissues, and deodorant. Items can be dropped off to the St Kilda Mum’s office in Clayton - be sure to include a note of support to go along with your generous gift and share a photo on social media with the special hashtag #makeamothersday
