The sound of a crying baby tugs at the heartstrings.
You just want them to be settled and happy. But, because they can’t just tell you what is wrong, it is hard to know what the problem is when you have fed them, burped them, changed their nappy, cuddled them, and played with them… yet they are still crying.
When my babies were young, they were unsettled and fussy due to discomfort from eczema. So, I created Gobstopperz to soothe their pain.
When I realised that I had created something that would help soothe pain for both babies and parents alike, I began producing them as a business.
Now, Gobstopperz is a flourishing brand and I am so glad that I help many families get the comfort they need.
But I am not done giving.
In fact, Gobstopperz has a select range of products that quite literally give back via donations. I’d love to tell you about it.
Products That Give To Those That Need It Most
There are many people out there with needs greater than our own. That is why I feel it is really important to support them through Gobstopperz.
Every month, I pick a charity to support. Then $5 from the sale of certain products goes directly to the charity.
If you would like to check out which are the qualifying products for this month, then head over to the shop now. [https://gobstopperz.co.nz/collections/giving-back] You too can give to those in need without even having to spend more on your Gobstopperz!
Who We Support
When I choose the charity of the month, Sometimes they are larger charities, and sometimes they are the lesser known operations. No matter the charity, I try to choose ones that will benefit from the donations the most.
In the last couple of months we have supported:
NZ Forest & Bird: They are an environmental organisation whose mission it is to protect all the things that make New Zealand beautiful - our wildlife, as well as our flora and fauna. They do amazing work throughout the country protecting threatened species and helping to keep our clean and green image a reality.
Warming Hearts NZ: This is a charity that does amazing things for babies in need. They package up both pre-loved and new clothing and bedding essentials for those in desperate need. They focus on providing natural fabrics like merino, wool and cotton as they are best for keeping babies warm - hence their name. As they say, warm babies lead to healthier babies. And we want to warm some babies up all year round!
SPCA Auckland: This is a charity dear to my heart as I used to volunteer for the SPCA as a dog trainer. They do amazing things to re-home pets, and stand up for animals who don't have a voice in this world. With such a large number of animals that go through their doors, they are always desperate for any help we can give them.
