At only 8 years old, Benjy started Socks4Support with the intention of collecting as many socks as possible to give to the homeless after one winter night, walking with his parents, he noticed how cold those sleeping rough must get. Since then, Benjy has collected thousands of pairs of socks, increasing his annual target each year and helping many to keep their feet warm during the colder months.

St Kilda Mums have a vision for a future where we share more, waste less and care for every child. Since 2009, St Kilda Mums have been moving closer and closer to realising that vision. They recycle nursery equipment including cots, prams, and car seats, as well as clothes and other baby essentials, and sort, quality check, and safety check them to ensure they meet current Australian Safety Standards. They give to people who are facing a variety of challenges and hope they feel uplifted when they receive a donation from them. Requests from Maternal Child Health nurses and social workers on behalf of families in need are received. St Kilda Mums then try to meet or exceed each request with quality new or pre-loved donations.
