*WE NEED YOUR HELP TO SUPPORT NEW MUMS!*
I am very excited to announce my new project providing care packages for (struggling) new mum’s experiencing mental health issues and attending @bluebellcare.
These mum’s are women who like me, struggled massively with their mental health after giving birth. Each month I aim to raise at least £60 to fund 12 care packages for these amazing ladies. Each one will cost £5 to make and contain a pack of affirmation cards, a postcard, a face mask, some tea and sweet treat as well as a handwritten letter from myself or you! Yes YOU! I will be listing these care packages on my website from October 1st for you to purchase for a Bluebell Mum and there will be a space for you to write them a little note of encouragement. I know that a gesture like this from a stranger would of made me feel less alone and put a smile on my face during a dark time. Once you have purchased a package and written your note, I will pack it up and send it to Bluebell and you can bask in that warm, fuzzy feeling knowing that you have more than likely made someone’s day a little brighter. In addition to being able to purchase a care package, you can also make a small donation via the dedicated GoFundMe page via the link in my bio . Lastly, I will also be raising funds for the packages by donating 10% from the sale of any of my products from my shop. I thank you all in advance for any support that you can offer with this, whether it be purchasing a package, making a donation, buying a product or sharing the posts and stories relating to the project. It all means the absolute world!
I have been working on this special project for months and I am very excited albeit a little anxious to get this up and running!
Bluebell care is a growing charity that offers support to pregnant and new mums who are experiencing depression and anxiety. Mums can access 1:1 support from a peer support buddy, group support programs and the opportunity to come along to targeted drop-in sessions at their central Bristol Hub.
My aim is to provide Bluebell with at least 12 care packages per month to gift to new mums who may be struggling with antenatal and Post-natal depression and anxiety. The packages will be designed to bring comfort and support during a difficult time and a way of let the recipient know they are not alone.
