Fundraising for NICUs

Our goal is to raise funds to support research and contribute to medical equipment for NICUs. Secondly, 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.

Our 2022 fundraiser

We are ready for this year's fundraiser! The superhero day will take place on November 25. We will get our bakesale going again for those delicious Dutch/Boet cookies and cakes and early 2022 we will organise a physical challenge again.

This year our fundraising efforts will go to research at the Murdoch Children's Reseach Institute. Research lead by one of Boet's main doctors, Associate Professor David Tingay. The research aims to better understand lung function straight after birth. Here is a little video of research already completed for full-term babies. The results will help to develop better and more personalised resuscitation methods and care for premature and sick born babies.

25 November 2022 is Superhero Day!

25 November 2022 is superhero day to honour Boet, the superhero of all superheroes. Caat and Eef did it again, they are the driving force behind the Superhero Day, working with their teachers at their own school, to make it a special and fun day. 

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 info@byboet.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 bio 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 on November 25!

Last year we baked over 25 kg pepernoten, 21 stroopwafel cake loafs, 20 pepernoten cake loafs and 29 Christmas/ end of year gifts. But our biggest hit last year were the little taste packs, we made 43 of them. 

This year we will bake again of course and we might even add a few new little items on the menu.

 

We will start on November 1 and will bake all the way through his birthday on December 21. So mark this in  your calendars.

Boet's scavenger hunt

This year we are organising a scavenger hunt to celebrate Boet's birthday. For metro Melbourne it will be a route within Williamstown with some questions/facts along the way to keep everyone engaged. There will also be a digital version available for everyone outside of metro Melbourne. There will be a little treat at the end to celebrate the achievement! Tickets will go on sale soon! So get in there quickly!
