An update for our community on the QLD and NSW Floods
From our founder
I want to thank our customers for their patience this past week.
Both our Brisbane and Byron teams have been affected by the floods that hit QLD and Northern NSW. Whilst our Brisbane store is now fully operational, and all orders leave from here, most online customer enquiries are usually handled in Byron. We have been without phone signal and internet for the majority of the week, with some staff suffering damage to their homes or being stranded and cut off from food and supplies.
Personally, I live in Ballina and I’ve spent the last week helping at the local evacuation centre, and it’s going to be such a big job rebuilding all that has been lost in our beautiful community.
However one thing I’ve noticed amongst all this is how powerful the love between parents and children is, and how it is truly one of the most beautiful things in the world. I’ve seen a Mum come in who had been sleeping on the beach with her 5 children to keep them safe, and hungry and exhausted all she was worried about was her kids. I’ve seen children from overseas mobilising contacts through social media to find their elderly parents who weren’t answering their phones and had been flooded.
The reunions between families who were desperately worried for the safety of their loved ones are images I’ll never forget.
So new mums and dads, hug those babies just a little tighter tonight. And pregnant mums to be, the love you're about to experience will truly change your life.
Supporting those impacted
For the month of March & April, Baby HQ will be donating $1 from every online and in-store sale to those impacted by the recent NSW & QLD floods.
We have made the decision to donate through theRed Cross Flood Appeal.
