Fundraising for NICUs

Our aim with ByBoet is to raise funds to support research. Also, based on our own experiences, we want to provide less medically-essential items for NICUs, that are so very important to support the babies and their families.


Over the last few years we have been able to donate 26,000$ to MCRI! We are so immensely proud of all we have achieved. We couldn't have done it without your support, dedication and love.

The funds continue to be used to support research. Research lead by one of Boet's main doctors, Professor David Tingay. The research aims to better understand preterm lung function straight after birth.


Our 2024 fundraiser

Preparations for this years fundraising events are well and truly on it's way. This year we are kicking off with a bang! See below for more information. We will also get our bakesale going again for those delicious Dutch/Boet cookies and cakes and after its successful launch last year, we will be organising a Christmas market again!

Our fundraising efforts will go again to research at the Murdoch Children's Reseach Institute. Here is a little video of research already completed for full-term babies.

Funds raised will support MCRI's Associate Professor David Tingay and his research to better understand newborn infants' respiratory outcomes. Through this research, David and his team hope to develop new ways to diagnose preterm lung injury, allowing doctors to properly treat preterm babies at the right time to improve quality of life and life expectancy. As you can imagine, this research is very close to our hearts and has a very strong alignment to everything ByBoet stands for; We want to help to the next Boet to make it home.

Christmas Market

After its successful launch last year, we will be organising a Christmas market again! Last year we had around 400 people visiting the market, we had amazing musical performance including a performance from Mona Patel, we had beautiful home made crafts that we sold, the most amazing treats for our bakesale and of course a sausage sizzle. We raised about 10,000$ which is an amazing results. So get ready! More information to follow soon.

Superhero Day!

19 October 2023 was Superhero Day this year at Hollywood Primary School!

ByBoet is supporting Neonatal Lung Research and we are looking to buy Zaky hands for NICU's to support the tiniest and most vulnerable babies and their families.


The Superhero Day was initiated in 2020 by our then 7 year old daughter Caat. After Boet passed away and we decided to launch ByBoet, Caat wanted to play a role as well. She wanted to involve the community and came up with the idea of a Superhero Day, in memory of our little Superhero. With full support of us she approached her school, Saltwater P-9 College. They jumped in and supported by making a little video, the Superhero Day was born. In 2021 we organised it again, this time it was driven by our two eldest daughters Caat and Eef. Since it has developed in a yearly fundraising event. 

We need your help! As we would love to see as many Superheroes as possible and get as many schools, day-cares, friends and family involved. So how can you help us? Please introduce us to your school or day-care and help us organise a Superhero Dress-up Day at your school and day-care! Send an email to or ask your school or day-care to reach out and we will get in touch. We have a school pack ready to go including a poster, colouring in sheet, a little factsheet and more. It has never been easier to organise a fundraiser!


So let’s do this! A fun day for all the kids whilst supporting a great cause.


We can’t wait to see all the Superhero’s!
