What Do We Want?
Size 8-16, A-D cup ( 30-40 / 80-100 ) in good condition, including crop top styles.
Size 18+, A-D cup ( 42+ / 105+ ) - rare and precious bras - any condition will do.
Nursing bras including crop tops, ANY condition will do. If it will catch a leak it is better than nothing, which is the alternative.
E cup plus, ANY size - even rarer - you will know that if you've tried to buy them. Likely to be the only properly fitting bras that a woman gets in her life.
Mastectomy Bras and Breast Forms (prostheses) Like gold. If possible please send the box with the breast form/prosthesis, and put the relevant bras under the plastic mould, in the bottom of the box. These will be given to hospitals for distribution. If sending bras only, without breast forms/prostheses, please put a note in the bag/postpack so we don't miss-sort them.
Swimwear, any size. Swimwear is great for keeping warm if you are standing in the water fishing with a hand line for a couple of hours. It is also handy for coastal women who dive for cash crops.
Underpants, new. A girl without underpants does not go to school during her period.
Fabric Nappies, second hand or new. In some areas, fabric nappies are expensive to buy so mums often buy one disposable at a time. That money is better spent on food for Mum. (Nappies at drop off points in Victoria only please).
Given the number of breastfeeding women in our little community we're really hoping to collect a fair few nursing bras - ANY CONDITION.
There is a bit of room to move at the moment so please let us know if you'd like to change days. We have some requests recorded but ask that these be confirmed.
This information session may be of interest to some of you. If you have trouble reading the details please email us and we'll send you a better quality copy via email.
We hear lovely feedback all the time and from so many families but disappointingly, it rarely gets documented. Care for Kids have just introduced a new Parent Rating System to accompany their existing testimonial section so HERE'S YOUR CHANCE. It's so easy and takes 2 minutes.
Click on the logo above to rate Green Gables or even leave a testimonial (simply click on our name and the click 'rate').
Thanks so much
This is a quick note to remind you of our strict practices that help keep your children safe by ensuring our environment is free of potential hazards.
Here is the safety statement all families signed upon joining the Green Gables family. Please take a moment to reread it paying special attention to the removal of medicines from bags (these should be handed directly to staff, even asthma medication) and the signing children in and out each day.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation,
