Thank you for your contribution. All donations over $2 are tax-deductible. A receipt for your donation will be sent via your nominated email address.
If the $600 donation option is selected (and paid for) this will directly fund five ABA memberships and matching breastfeeding education (BEL) for 5 vulnerable mums.
If other donation values are selected, then this will fund ABA's other outreach, education and advocacy programs – rather than specifically funding memberships.
You may select multiples of the $600 donation, or if you have a specific value above $600 in mind (with a specific donor intention), then please reach out to our National Support Office via this link and we can arrange this for you.
For this year’s Festive Appeal, ABA is working with a number of community organisations/early intervention programs to connect with and support vulnerable mums.
At the conclusion of the Festive Appeal we will reach out to these organisations letting them know how many free education and membership packs are available for the expectant and new parents they're working with. The packs will be provided by request, with expectant parents prioritised if necessary.
Identification of these in-need mums will rest with the community support worker; we respect their professional assessment, and their ’endorsement’ is all ABA needs to grant the membership and education pack.
ABA local group leaders can also identify and nominate in-need mums. As all volunteers are bound by ABA's Constitution, Code of Ethics, and Code of Conduct, and are often deeply embedded within their community, ABA looks forward to the endorsements that come from within the ABA network.
