This festive period, we are partnering with Little Village. As one of the UK's biggest baby banks, Little Village support thousands of families every year with essential items they need to thrive. We felt Little Village were the perfect partner for us to share the load and the the love this winter. So, we've turned every one of our Mamamade boxes into Little Village donation boxes. Read on for how to support.
How to get involved...
There has never been a more important time to support Little Village's mission. But, we need our community to get involved. Here's how to:
1. Fill your empty Mamamade food box with items in great condition: 0-5 yrs clothes, shoes, warm items and feeding kits.
2. Use the link below to receive your pre-paid Collect+ label.
3. Drop your filled Mamamade donation box at your local Collect+ location.
Your box will then be sent to Little Village directly, where they can sort your gifts and share the love with more families than ever over the coming months.

Little Village are on a mission to support families with children living in poverty. They run a baby bank network - collecting, sorting and passing on great quality, pre-loved clothes and equipment. Families are supported by their dedicated guidance team and can either visit a Little Village hub have much needed items directly to their door.
Since launching in 2016, Little Village have supported over 25,000 children across London and receive thousands of requests every year. Plus, Little Village's focus on pre-loved means they promote a circular model – in 2021 alone they prevented £2.2m worth of items going to landfill. Leaving an impact rather than a trace.
The items Little Village pass on are a gift, given with love from one family to another. Please bear this in mind when preparing your donations and only donate items you would be happy to pass on to a family member or friend – so no stained, worn out or broken items please.
