Every Little Bit Helps is a charity. Established in July 2014, we collect, pack and redistribute unwanted hotel toiletries, inflight amenity kits, cosmetic and make-up samples to those in need including the homeless, asylum seekers and victims of domestic violence as well as troubled youths through Women’s Refuge, Homeless Shelters, Youth Centres, Asylum Centres and Community Centres as well as via small Government and Community Groups.

The catalyst for establishing Every Little Bit Helps was learning that while there are many facilities providing laundry and shower facilities, most are able to supply little more than running water and previously did not have regular and reliable access to basic toiletry products.

We have drop-off locations in Brisbane, Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Perth Adelaide. Alternatively you can mail your donations to us at PO Box 340, Forestville NSW 2087.

Our organisation is proudly run 100% by volunteers across Australia but like every organisation we need to cover our running costs. These include shipping and distribution of our kits to the people we support, annual insurance and the bags we pack our kits in to. We appreciate any offers of financial support.

Every Little Bit Helps

Great news! Lucy has been reunited with her owner. 👏👏👏

NSW Police Force
Great news!

Officers from Sydney City Police Area Command have reunited a homeless man and his pet rat today, after she went missing last week.

Just after 2pm on Saturday 6 April 2019, a homeless man left his pet rat 'Lucy' on a milkcrate on Pitt Street while he used a nearby bathroom.

A woman, who walked past and saw Lucy alone, believed she had been abandoned, so took her home and cared for her.

Thanks to all our Facebook followers, Lucy was safely retrieved today and returned to her owner.

Without you – we have nothing which is why your donations are so important, and the very reason we ensure we take to time each month to recognise the generosity of those that support us.

We also want to take this opportunity to wish you a very Happy Easter and to remind you – if you are lucky enough to be travelling – please remember to collect and send your unopened hotel toiletries as well as airline amenity kits, makeup and cosmetic samples and sanitary items to us so we can include them in our custom made care packs for people in need who are homeless – including victims of domestic violence – the single biggest cause of homelessness in Australia.

Here is our monthly update;
-> Last week we held a corporate volunteering packing day with the teams at EA - Electronic Arts in both NSW & QLD, resulting in 700 Care Packs & 59 Lady Care packs. Earlier this month we worked with the team at Westpac where we created 720 care packs and 120 Lady Care Pack – a massive result!

-> FUNDRAISING: Our Magic Wipes continue to be incredibly popular – if you haven’t brought or gifted yours yet – here is the link to do so - www.elbh.org.au/ Our Magic Wipes are just like a Wet One, only they are chemical free and come in a compressed towel format making them a fantastic alternative to a face washer for our clients. Each tube costs just $2 to give or for $3 you can buy one for yourself and gift one to people in need via our care packs (so much better than an Easter egg!!!). Please also be reminded – Every Little Bit Helps is run 100% by volunteers so every cent we raise is used to directly support people in need.

-> DONATIONS MADE: We have donated Care Packs and Lady Care Packs to the following;
Bundamba State School in QLD
Survivors R Us in Newcastle
Carries Place in Newcastle
Eat.Chop.Shop ahead of their event next month

Of course none of this could ever be possible without your continued and generous support. So, as we always do, we would like to take this opportunity to thank the many individuals and corporates who choose to support us and ultimately support people in need who are homeless including victims of Domestic Violence;

Today we were joined by the fabulous teams from EA - Electronic Arts in Melbourne and Sydney who collectively, through corporate volunteering and a little bit of modern technology, have helped us create over 700 care packs and 59 Lady Care Packs for people in need who are homeless.

It certainly is a fantastic feeling as we slide into the weekend and a holiday period that we have directly been able to support over 500 people by providing them with access to basic personal hygiene products which they may not otherwise have had access to.

Please join us in thanking the fabulous team at Electronic Arts as well as our amazing VIC State Manager and volunteer– Belinda Bele, as well as Ezekial Simat and our logistics partner John Bull Removals & Storage.

Thank you to each and every one of you for your support and don’t forget to “Like” and Share to show you care and thank you for remembering Every Little Bit Helps
