We appreciate the hampers because it helped us so much. Since living in Canada, we’ve never received such generous Christmas gifts and gift cards for food.  The children so excited and almost couldn’t wait until Christmas Eve to open their gifts. Mom is shopping to make Christmas dinner using the gift cards given to her from the hampers. A big thank you to the sponsor!

For a few years we didn’t buy any new clothes until we received the Christmas Hampers. Thank you for the new clothing and all the Christmas’s gifts for my family.

It’s more than just a bike. My son and I would like to thank you & express our sincere gratitude for your generous support and gift card. Your donation made it possible for my 7 year old son to safely ride a new bike which boosted his confidence since his had no brakes on his old one. Because of this gift card, my son and I spent some one on one valuable time together, his safety was prioritized. Your generosity is what helps children in care strengthen their families so they can stay together, thrive, and look forward to future engagements. Thank you for helping our family when we had no other means to provide.

Healthy babies has been there for me through the thick and thin. When I became closer to 30 weeks I was given so many tips and resources which helped me calm down about giving birth. Healthy babies amazed me with how they handled my early delivery and how they were able to help me find resources to help in the NICU. I highly recommend this group to anyone who is struggling with anxiety, depression, issues with their pregnancy, or just in general need support.

Healthy Babies helped me be present for my kids, even at the hardest times. They provided a safe space where I could talk about my parenting journey and build friendships with other moms. They also shared lots about self-care and ways of making nutritious food on a budget. It all made a huge difference on my mental health and enabled me to be the best mom I could be.
