Kia Ora! We are a group of mums (& one dad by default) who have established a charitable trust so the we can start supporting mums during the postpartum period in the Clutha District (way down South Otago). We have done A LOT of ground work already (well we think so...) but there are still many ducks we need to get in a row before we launch. We didn't realise until we got in too deep, but setting up a non-profit is much the same as setting up a business - who knew! Not us anyway... We want to help mums with new babies, mums are at the heart of what we want to do! But to do this effectively, we should really know more about running the show. So if you a) value mothers and their contributions to society & b) understand the ins and outs of running an effective non-profit from a business perspective - including marketing/communications and general business advisory - please get in touch!

Working location

We are located in the Clutha District but are happy to meet either face to face or talk via phone or video call.

Proposed project steps with time estimates

We want to do our first round of boxes in January 2021, accounting for mothers who have given birth in our district in both in December and January. We need to get our ducks in a row before we go live with social media and our website.

What We Have In Place

We have a budget; a website (not live); minutes of our meetings; a location to cook (local high school); a referral process; a funding plan; a cook day process.

We are in the process of obtaining our bank account now that we are a charitable trust.

We have passion for this project because if we look after mothers, we look after the whole family.

Blessed Box Charitable Trust
Maternal Health
Our Mission is to support new mother’s physical and mental health during the postpartum period in the greater Clutha area.
What we Do
Our Purpose is to provide a beautifully curated box containing a prepared family meal, cupcakes and a breastfeeding/ sleep deprivation snack pack for a Mother with a new baby, free of charge. Motherhood is hard, however newborn life can be a particularly challenging time. To give the gift of food is something that has been said to truly brighten what can be a very tough couple of days, weeks and months for a new mother. This is a way of practically supporting a Mother’s physical and mental health during the postpartum period. We hold the Mother at the centre of our work, acknowledging that if we look after her, we look after the whole family.
