Online Fundraising

Thank you for considering to fundraise for Bears Of Hope through our Cuddle Cot Campaign. It is a beautiful way to honour your baby and a beautiful gift for other bereaved families to allow them more time with their baby.

 

The $6500 that you are fundraising for includes the cooling unit, Schnuggle basket and base, linen and plaques, embroidery of linen, engraving of plaques, freight, administration charges with any remaining funds put towards other objectives of Bears Of Hope.

 

** From 10th July 2019, the cost of a cuddle cot increased from $6000 to $6500 for any new fundraisers and donors. The moses basket will be replaced with a Schnuggle basket which cost $879. These have been specially molded to accommodate the cooling pad and hose and provide hospitals and funeral homes with an easy to clean basket thereby reducing any infection control concerns

 

Please update your fundraising page with this goal and we encourage you to personalise your page before emailing out to your contacts.

 

The expiry date of your fundraising page can be extended at any point. Please advise us if you change your expiry date from when you first created your fundraising page.

 

Please read the Terms and Conditions for your Cuddle cot fundraiser before you start.

Once you reach your goal, please email cuddlecots@bearsofhope.org.au to begin the hospital donation process.

 

1.You will need to email us the precious baby's name and date of birth/date of passing details to arrange the embroidery and plaques. We will then get your cuddle cot ready.

 

2. Make contact with your placement of choice or send us some options and we can do this on your behalf. We may also be able to advise of placement options. 

 

3. Once the placement is confirmed, we can courier the cuddle cot directly to the hospital. Alternatively, if you would like to personally present it to the hospital, we can arrange to have the cuddle cot couriered to your address. There is some assembly required - directions are provided. We are unable to cover your personal travel costs.

 

4. If you will be personally presenting it, you can make it as intimate or as official as you wish in collaboration with the relevant staff. You may like to have the local newspaper involved, family and friends attend for support.

 

5. We would love to see some photos of the presentation. Feel free to share with us and we can also put on our facebook page if you wish.


Please don't hesitate to contact us via cuddlecots@bearsofhope.org.au if you have any questions.
