What’s the hardest part about being a parent?
I would say the hardest part about being a parent is the 24/7 responsibility of looking after your little one. Initially it’s a big adjustment but it’s amazing how quickly it becomes your new norm.

What’s the one thing you wish you’d been told about being a parent?
Although parenting is one of the hardest jobs in the world I do think that more people should tell you about the positives of becoming a parent. The good times will always outweigh the challenges and I think we need to remind new parents of that. It really is the most rewarding job in the world!

What’s the most unexpected thing about being a new parent?
I would say it’s how much you love your child. The love you have for them is indescribable!

What’s one thing you do to sometimes just get through the day and make things easier?
We try to be organised when it comes to food and the plans for the day which makes life a heck of a lot easier. Also sneaking in a cat nap or some down time when they nap can be a lifesaver!

What are the key things you look for in babycare products?
Value for money, quality (minimal chemicals or unnecessary processing), effectiveness, good design, gentle on the skin. We really feel although Thankyou products are all of the above with the added bonus of the profits helping those in need!

Adele's questions for Thankyou

How do Thankyou choose what to fund?
We play a role in helping to end global poverty by working with impact partners to reach marginalised people living in extreme poverty, which is defined by people living on less than $1.90 a day or sustained material deprivation of basic needs defined by the UN.

Before we commit to funding a program, we test and assess the partner and approach to ensure that it offers not just a ‘quick fix’ but long-term, sustainable outcomes which involve the community. We believe sustainability involves more than building ‘hardware’, knowledge transfer and addressing behavioural change at all levels - community, government and the private sector.

With all of that said, we’re really proud to say that to date, we’ve given over $6.2 million to fund water, sanitation, food and maternal and child health programs in 20 countries including a local program in Australia that have reached over 857,000 people in need.
