About WBBS

The World’s Biggest Baby Shower (WBBS) is the signature national fundraising initiative for Brave Foundation launched in May 2016 celebrating Mother’s day.

Register with Brave Foundation to hold a baby or fundraising shower during the month of May. You don’t need to be pregnant to hold a shower, and you don’t need to have anything relating to babies at your shower!. This is the time to honour all mums and mothering role models in your family, community or workplace.

Attendees to your shower will give donations to Brave Foundation’s World’s Biggest Baby Shower. You will be equipped with free online resources and shower ideas from Brave Foundation to help in holding your shower.

You can also be part of the World’s Biggest Baby Shower at any time throughout the year, by hosting your baby shower at any time and raising money for Brave Foundation.

We will provide plenty of inspiration so that your WBBS fundraiser is the most talked about baby shower or fundraising shower yet!

The World’s Biggest Baby Shower has the Biggest Range of FREE Resources (See below).

Once registered as a Host you can download our Host booklet below which provides you with everything you need to know about hosting a World’s Biggest Baby Shower.

How You Can Help... Susan

I was a few days shy of my 17th Birthday when I found out I was pregnant.

When I found out I was shocked, horrified, scared.

I couldn’t really believe it and initially I didn’t know how to feel. I had no idea whether I wanted to keep the baby. I was still at school, going into year 11. A big factor of my decision to continue with the pregnancy was to make sure the school would support me to finish my education.

HOW YOUR FUNDS WILL ASSIST BRAVE FOUNDATION

If you can’t get involved in the World’s Biggest Baby Shower, you can still help out by donating. Donate here

or fundraise at any time of the year https://www.mycause.com.au/events/worldsbiggestbabyshower

1. SET A DATE AND LOCATION

The WBBS can be held throughout the year, our planning documents will assist you in getting organised for your Baby Shower.

If you decide to hold your baby shower outside, think of a wet weather plan just in case.

Send a ‘save the date’ email, text or written invite to friends, family or colleagues to make sure they can make it.

2. PLAN YOUR BABY SHOWER

Whether you want to pull out all the stops with a theme, decorations and activities or just keep it simple, we have plenty of ideas to inspire you and some examples of other showers. Please share your baby shower online with us using the hash tag #wbbs.

3. START FUNDRAISING!

Your Online Fundraising Page helps you raise funds before, during and after your event quickly and easily. Once you have registered to host a baby shower, simply login to your personal fundraising page, and personalise it with details of your event. Once you have done this, share the link among all your friends, family and colleagues. They will be able to see details of your baby shower, donate, and leave messages.

Customise your online fundraising page to suit your baby shower. Upload photos, videos and include all the details such as date, time, location, what to bring, how to donate, how much your entry fee is and more. You can even use your page to promote your baby shower on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and via email. Or if you prefer, stick to phone calls and use the posters and invitations you receive in your host pack to spread the word. There are ready-made, printable templates and more resources available to download.

It’s always best to collect as many donations prior to the event as you can, so the event is a celebration of all your hard work.

4. GET BAKING!

Ask your guests to help out with bringing some high tea baby shower food for the day. Also get cracking on some fun baby shower games, our comprehensive games pack is free to download after registering to host a shower.

5. THE BIG DAY!

All the fun is in setting up! Line up your teacups, set out your scrumptious food and set up your decorations including your donation bottle (any baby bottle will do!). Welcome your guests, host any games you’ve been planning and celebrate your baby shower!

6. SAY THANK YOU

Once you’ve finished fundraising, remember to thank everyone who donated, contributed or sponsored your baby shower and let them know how much you raised. Login to your fundraising page to easily send a thank you to everyone who donated.
