Supporting Mater Little Miracles
Finding a charity to donate to can be a tough exercise considering the fantastic work that hundreds of charities do on a daily basis. Having worked with many charities in the past as an organisation, Edge’s National Sales Manager, Mike Ricketts, has been donating to Mater Little Miracles for 3 years now.
What do Mater Little Miracles do?
Every baby born at Mater is a Mater little miracle. That’s one in seven Queenslanders and more than 10,000 new babies every year who can proudly say, “I’m a Mater baby.”
But sadly, not all babies are born healthy. Some are born premature, are seriously ill, or are simply too small to go straight home with their parents.
Mater is dedicated to providing the best possible start to life for the seriously ill and premature babies cared for at Mater by raising vital funds through Mater Little Miracles.
More than 2,000 babies each year will have to spend time in our Neonatal Critical Care Unit (NCCU) where specialist staff treat and care for up to 79 seriously ill and premature babies every night.
Some babies are born as young as 24 weeks and weigh as little as 400 grams, some have come from as far as Cairns and Townsville for the specialist neonatal care for which Mater is renowned.
Thanks to donations like Mike’s, the Mater Foundation has provided over $51 million of funding to health, education and research.
If this is your first time, we encourage you to donate and if you are a regular, we thank you. To donate or to learn more about Mater Little Miracles, please follow the link – https://www.materlittlemiracles.org.au/
