Donate your nappies in the Barossa

Donate your nappies in the Barossa

From May 6-20, The Nappy Collective will run its broadest collective to date.

Spanning 39 cities and towns across Australia, around 400 workplaces will collect hundreds of thousands of leftover, unused, disposable nappies for mothers in shelters and families in need.

Daisy and Hen is pleased to be participating as an official drop point location in Tanunda and in the Barossa region, where they hope the local community will help The Nappy Collective smash their one million nappies target.

Owner of Daisy and Hen, Gina Britton was thrilled with their participation in the cause.

“I am thrilled to be involved in such a wonderful cause. I feel passionate about doing my part to help women, children and families in need and I’m so proud to offer an avenue for the community to become involved too,” she said.

Over 734,625 nappies have been collected to date through the biannual drives, but the demand has only increased since the inception of The Nappy Collective, with shelters and welfare agencies finding it difficult to purchase nappies for their clients with only limited funds at their disposal.

The nappies collected at Daisy and Hen will be redistributed around Australia to over 130 organisations that support mothers fleeing family violence as well as families struggling with homelessness, mental illness, drug abuse and heavy financial hardship.

Dannii Minogue has long been one of The Nappy Collective’s biggest supporters, as she spreads the word and lends her support to the campaign.

"As a mum, I feel passionate about The Nappy Collective. It’s overwhelming to realise the positive impact it has on mothers in need, knowing the community cares about them," she said.
