Donate a toy to a child in need. The Magic Moments Foundation Basket Brigade is built on a simple notion: one small act of generosity on the part of one caring person can transform the lives of many (including their own). Each year MMF Basket Brigades around Australia collect nominations from support agencies for potential recipients, organise a catalogue of items needed to complete our MMF festive baskets, and run a Packing Day in which members of the public and the Basket Brigade Committee volunteers write gift cards, wrap presents, and pack baskets. Later that day, more volunteers work tirelessly to hand deliver the baskets to nominated recipients.
Toys are an integral part of the MMF Basket Brigade requirement. We have made a facility which allows you to donate toys which WE know are required and important for the basket hampers which we will prepare. Donating via this facility will ensure we get appropriate, relevant and needed toys in a timely fashion.
And the only thing we ask of the people who receive the gift baskets is that, when the time comes and if they are able to, that they pay it forward and show the same level of kindness and generosity to another family. The fruits of our actions are visible every year in the growth of the MMF Basket Brigades across Australia, with chapters in most capital cities as well as hundreds of volunteers participating in raising funds, gathering donations, collecting food, clothes, toys and other items to give to new families.
