Mackay and Whitsunday Life

A Monthly Bundle Of Love And Support

In an act of kindness, a volunteer from a local hamper organisation has announced the startup of a monthly giveaway for families in Mackay, particularly aimed at mothers, to lighten the burden of financial stress and give a helping hand to those who deserve it most. Realistically, all mothers are deserving of a pamper pack, but if you know a special mother figure in need of support, nominations are now open! The idea of the giveaway is to uplift those who are struggling, to remind them that they are loved, supported and valued.

The small but impactful act of generosity has showcased the kind nature of our community. Amanda Potter shared a post on Facebook, announcing a monthly giveaway from The Nurtured Village Hampers Mackay. Amanda is joined by Courtney Simpson in this new initiative. Shortly after, the comment section was filled with caring souls who offered additional services to add to the hamper packs, like; remedial massages, house cleaning, children’s hair cut services as well as cash donations.

As the cost of living continues to increase, many families are under a heavy load of financial stress. Amanda emphasises that they are in need of one-off donations and regular donations, whether they be financial support or physical items, vouchers or an offer of service. Donations can be anything from groceries, coffee vouchers, to massages, beauty products, flowers or anything that could potentially take the load off a family’s shoulders and make a mum feel special.

If you or your business would like to spread the love this month, visit The Nurtured Village Hampers Mackay on Facebook to find out more.
