This is the story of how Thankyou baby was made, which took a little longer than nine months, but still involved lots of careful planning and tons of excitement. As with most of our crazy ideas, it all started with a leap of faith. We saw an opportunity to make a range of top-notch baby products, with the power to create real positive change.

The Happiest Day Of Debra's Life

As we drive into the Zimbabwean village in the early afternoon, the heat is predictably intense. At the village school, the kids are on break – playing traditional African games like Nhodo, as well as netball. Children’s voices, shouting and laughing hum in the background as we walk through the dirt streets towards the school. We meet 12-year-old Debra* in the school yard...

International Women's Day - Breaking The Silence On Sanitation

Most of us in Australia understand the importance of giving. It’s easy to see the need for donating to cancer research, so we hold events to raise funds.

Driven by impact

The moment I stepped off the plane and felt the heat of the African sun, a rush of excitement came over me. I soaked in the fact that we had arrived at the destination where our very first food project was being funded. Coming off a few crazy months (well, more like a crazy year) of launching two brand new product ranges and implementing a massive marketing campaign, it was a surreal feeling that we were soon going to see the results of our hard work.

A Mother's Hope

Today we celebrate our mothers. Mothers who look at us with pride and who are our biggest supporters. But most of all we think of women like Veronika who live every day to fight for their families. We are reminded that as we get alongside these women and do what we can to live every day, give every day we can lift whole families out of poverty...
