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 2023 fundraiser
We are ready for this year's fundraiser!We will get our bakesale going again for those delicious Dutch/Boet cookies and cakes and this year we will organise our first ever Christmas Crafts Market! And, we had our superhero day on October 19.
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.
To celebrate Boet's 5th birthday we are organising a Christmas Craft Market. This will be held on 3 December, from 4 – 7pm, at the school grounds of Hollywood Primary School.
There will be multiple stalls with donated Christmas arts & crafts items, a bake sale and second hand toys and books.
We will run a sausage sizzle and have other foods and drinks. For entertainment, a collection of school choirs and other artists will be playing Christmas carols. And we will have some fun kids activities, including a face painter.
The event is open for the whole community! BYO picnic rug or chair.
We will also list some of our Christmas products in our webshop!
Yes, we will eat (and bake) cookies again!
This year's bakesale starts at November 1, 2023!
Get ready for pepernoten, cakes and other jummy Dutch treats..
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
