Making a Big Difference for Little Ones

June 11th, 2024 - Citrine Hudson

The Story of Littlemore:
In the bustling heart of Tāmaki Makaurau, a small charity is making a significant impact, one baby at a time. Littlemore, driven by a simple yet powerful concept, repurposes high-quality baby essentials and distributes them to families in need through expert social service agencies.

Since its inception, Littlemore has been dedicated to ensuring that every baby can enjoy a little more warmth, comfort, and care, regardless of the challenges their families face.

From Humble Beginnings to Community Impact:
Littlemore started as a modest operation in the founder’s home in 2013, with a vision to support whānau across the region. Recognising that they could amplify their impact by partnering with organisations that identify families with the greatest needs, Littlemore began working with agencies well-versed in the complex issues these families face. These challenges often include poor housing, homelessness, financial distress, and social isolation.

The charity’s approach is both straightforward and heartwarming: generous families donate baby clothing and items in excellent condition, which are then sorted, processed, and organized by Littlemore. These life-changing items are distributed directly to families, ensuring that pre-loved baby gear gets a second life and brings joy to new parents navigating tough times.

Growing to Meet the need:
As Littlemore’s reputation grew, so did its operational needs. By 2017, the charity had expanded sufficiently to require its first part-time employee, ensuring the smooth management of its growing operations. The support from Storage King Grey Lynn provided much-needed space, allowing Littlemore to process and store the increasing volume of donations.

A Community Effort Littlemore’s success is a testament to the power of community. The charity thrives on the generosity of families who donate items, the dedication of volunteers who sort and distribute them, and the expertise of social service agencies that ensure the items reach those who need them most. Thousands of lives are touched each year by Littlemore’s efforts, providing much-needed relief and support to families during one of the most critical times in their lives.

Looking Ahead:
Littlemore continues to grow, expanding its volunteer team and the number of social profit organizations it supports. This growth ensures that their vital service can reach even more families across Auckland. Each donated item represents a community coming together to support its most vulnerable members, embodying the spirit of giving and solidarity. As Littlemore moves forward, it remains committed to making a big difference through small, meaningful acts of kindness. By repurposing baby essentials and distributing them to families in need, Littlemore not only helps babies but also strengthens the community, fostering a network of support and care that benefits everyone involved.

Partnering with Dove Hospice:
Dove is proud to be a key partner in Littlemore’s mission, significantly contributing by providing high-quality donations of baby items. Known for our compassionate care and community support, Dove Hospice extends this generosity by donating baby essentials, which are then repurposed for families in need. This partnership exemplifies the collaborative spirit that drives Littlemore’s success, ensuring every item reaches a family who will benefit the most.

Through this collaboration, we strive to make a meaningful impact on the lives of those who need it the most. Our donations include everything from diapers and baby clothing to toys and other essential supplies, all meticulously selected to meet the highest standards of quality and safety. By working closely with Littlemore, we ensure that our contributions are effectively distributed to maximize their positive impact.

Together with Littlemore, we are dedicated to building a brighter future for every child and family we serve. Our shared vision and combined efforts highlight the importance of unity and compassion in creating lasting change. We are honoured to be a part of this incredible journey and look forward to continuing our work together to support and uplift our community.
