July 2017 - Basically Babies


July 02, 2017

The {love} project charity of choice for the month of July, 2017 is Basically Babies.

"Basically Babies is a registered charity that works to provide for the basic outfitting needs of newborn babies born to families in extreme need in the greater Edmonton area.  We offer the gift of a complete first year’s wardrobe for these infants in the form of a beautiful color-coordinated basket filled with clothing, outerwear, blankets, toys, storybooks, sleepers, undershirts, footwear and other baby essentials.  We call these packaged gifts “layettes”.  The layettes we provide contain 90 to 110 items which, if purchased new, would cost well in excess of $1,200.  While some of our items are new, we use a significant amount of gently-used clothing and baby items donated to us in excellent and “like-new” condition for this purpose.  Our full year wardrobes are delivered to the recipient families through a variety of charitable organizations, non-profit groups, social service agencies and health care agencies who are working with these families on a long-term basis to develop and build life skills."

..."Alopecia is the loss or the absence of hair. In simple terms, the immune system, for unknown reasons, attacks the hair root and causes hair loss. At 6 years old, she is already aware of the fact that she looks "different", and as a mother, Nicole is on a mission to bring awareness of this disease, as well as raise funds to find a cure for it. Although this Auto-Immune Disorder isn't life-threatening, it's VERY difficult on a girls' self-esteem and self-image in a society that puts so much weight on beauty and outward appearances!..."
