COVID-19 Stripey Stork Appeal

Why we need your help

As the COVID-19 crisis escalates, we need to ensure we have a reserve of funds so we can respond quickly when families need our help. Now, more than ever, our service is needed - as well as the families we were supporting before this pandemic, new families are increasingly being referred to us who can no longer cope financially. Those who don't have a safety net and family around to help them through this crisis. Those who have suddenly found themselves unemployed or with zero hours, and therefore can no longer afford the basics needed to keep their children fed, clean and clothed.
We've had to take the decision to close our warehouse for donations until further notice. This means we are reliant on the stock we already had. We need to future proof our service and start a fund to be able to buy new baby and children's essentials for the families who desperately need help via the network of referral partners who rely on our service. Items will need to be purchased such as nappies, wipes, basic toiletries, stationery items and specific items which we no longer have in stock. 
We also benefit from bulk purchases from key suppliers to make your donation go even further, and if you're a UK tax payer then don't forget to add gift aid, which will increase your donation by 25%. 
This is a tangible way to help at such an uncertain time, so if you feel helpless right now then please consider making a donation. We have the contacts and processes already in place to respond quickly in this changing landscape. Thank you for your support in getting help to where it's needed most.

Stripey Stork are a UK baby bank who believe that every child deserves the same start in life, regardless of the circumstances. We support families in need all year round with the essential items they need for their babies and children, and our service is needed now more than ever.

As the COVID-19 crisis escalates, we need to ensure we have a reserve of funds for when families quickly need items. As well as the families we were supporting before this pandemic, new families are increasingly being referred to us who can no longer cope financially. Those who don't have a safety net and family around to help them through this crisis. Those who have suddenly found themselves unemployed or are on zero hours contracts with no hours for the foreseeable future, and therefore can no longer afford the basics needed to keep their children fed, clean and clothed.

We've had to close our warehouse to donations until further notice. This means we are reliant on the stock we already had. We have had to redesign and future proof our service, and start a fund to be able to buy new baby and children's essentials for the families who desperately need help via the network of referral partners who rely on our service. Items will need to be purchased such as nappies, wipes, basic toiletries, stationery items and specific products which we no longer have in stock. 

This is a real and tangible way to help at such an uncertain time, so if you feel helpless right now then please consider making a donation. Stripey Stork have the contacts and processes already in place to respond to demand in this changing landscape. Your donation will support our service to continue now and beyond the crisis.  

Stripey Stork also benefit from bulk purchases from key suppliers to make your donation go even further, and if you're a UK tax payer then don't forget to add gift aid, which will increase your donation by 25%. 

Thank you for your support in getting help to where it's needed most.
