Project Settle

Settle me! Your gift will help give a backpack full of love to our children who need it the most.

Children in care often find themselves removed from their homes without notice, without their belongings, and without basics like a toothbrush or a teddy to hug for comfort. These children have usually experienced neglect, trauma, or domestic violence.

As part of our Project Settle, ProjectKindness would like to put together settling packs for these children to help them handle the emotional upheaval of moving into care. We’re hoping to collect donations of the following for kids aged from 0 to 17 years:

  • Soft toys like teddies
  • Rattles or baby toys
  • Small toys for bigger kids
  • Books to read
  • Scrapbooks and colouring books
  • Pencils or crayons in a pencil case
  • Nappies
  • Toiletries like toothbrushes
  • Kid’s backpacks

All items need to fit inside a child size backpack. Whether it’s one item or a whole settling pack, anything you can donate will help make life easier for a child in care. Please message us or email if you can donate any of these items.

The settling packs will provide them with comfort, distractions, and toiletries, at a time when their worlds are crumbling. Let’s show these children that our community is in their corner by giving them a little backpack full of kindness. Come and support us in our settling project!

    Hi there, I have a number of new activity books and new baby toys that would be suitable to put in the backpacks for these children in need to help settle them. Where can I bring these items to donate?
    Best wishes,

      Hi Vicki,

      Thank you for helping spread kindness around our community with your offer of activity books and baby toys. You’re awesome!

      Every donation Project Kindness receives goes to people who are truly in need and struggling to make ends meet. Your donation of activity books and baby toys will be going to children in foster care placements.

      Please let us know where and a convenient time for our volunteers to pick up the donation. Thanks again for sharing a little kindness with our community.
