Marathon for Maeve fundraiser auction

Fundraiser for Maeve.

Beautiful little maeve is just 3 years old and suffers terribly from Epilepsy. Every day she suffers from seizures which prevent her from learning and developing.
Maeve attends CPEC (Cerebral Palsy Education Centre) here Maeve receives intensive therapy where she has been learning to sit, swing her legs and learn how to feed herself and interacting.

CPEC is acknowledged as a world leader in providing specialist education programs for children with cerebral palsy. The CPEC professional staff who work at the Centre in Glen Waverley are renowned internationally as the best in their field.

It costs around $19,000 per child per year to receive eight hours of service per week for 40 weeks. CPEC receives nearly $7,200 per child for the year from the State Government. The $12,000 shortfall is offset by the families who pay fees, do fundraising and seek donations. Their biggest fundraiser happens once a year, the Melbourne Marathon.

All monies raised from this Auction will go to her everyday hero page to help Maeve attend this very special centre. The auction will begin at 12pm Friday 9th September and run until Sunday 18th September at 9pm.

To donate an auction prize please use the contact us tab, all donations greatly appreciated.

Why use Modern Cloth Nappies? (MCN's)

Not only are Modern Cloth Nappies are a fun and exciting way to spice up your baby's behind, but they also reduce our footprint on the environment and SAVE YOU MONEY! They are as simple to put on as a disposable and are more breathable than a plastic disposable so can assist with nappy rash.

Every year billions of disposable nappies are thrown out causing mass land fill, taking hundreds of years to decompose. MCN's are reusable, and while the initial outlay for them can seem large, over the life of just one child in nappies the savings become very obvious. And when you factor in that you can use them for subsequent children the savings are HUGE!

For example: using disposables for a year for one child will cost you around $900 a year. Times that by the number of years one child is in nappies and they can cost well over $2000.

To use MCN's full time you need around 18-24, around 6-8 per day with time for drying.

Washing them is really simple too, all you need is a bucket with a good lid. Simply remove any solid waste into the toilet and put the soiled nappy in the bucket, no need for soaking. Then when you have enough for a load of washing, around every 2 days, simply put in the washing machine using 1/2 the detergent you would normally use, add an extra rinse then line or tumble dry.

Nappy design, The All Together Pocket (ATP)

Baby Chilli nappies are a pocket nappy with a twist. There is a 3 layer insert of microfibre sewn in as well as a microfibre/bamboo booster attached inside the pocket opening. This enables the nappy to have the the fast drying qualities of a pocket but with the ease of an all in one. And if required you can add another booster if required. An extra 3 layer booster of MF or bamboo is also available.

The nappy consists of a suede cloth or microfleece inner (for that stay dry feel) hidden layer of PUL, microfibre insert built in, bamboo booster attached and a decorative cotton outer.

All material used is high quality, nothing but the best for babies behinds :)
