Help put a smile on a sick child’s face this Christmas Day!


Christmas should be a happy time, but sadly some children will find themselves in hospital on Christmas Day. To help bring smiles to as many children as possible, North Shore Mums Smiles2U is launching a Christmas Toy Drive – so all those sick or injured children can receive a gift to brighten up their day.


In order to be able to give as many children as possible, Smiles2U are calling upon the generosity of our North Shore Mums community to donate a gift. And it’s easy!

Blake (pictured) spent Christmas Day 2017 at Hornsby Hospital and his mum Dani Pope says, ‘Thank you so much North Shore Mums Smiles2U. The service and goodwill you provide is amazing.’

And another NSM Dani Gilligan shares how she felt when she received a care pack from Smiles2U: ‘Today was an exhausting day, my baby boy was struggling to breath early this morning so I raced him straight to emergency. It was so nice to receive the North Shore Mums Smiles2U pack. It made my little man smile (and me cry 😭😂). Thanks so much for organising these lovely packs. We got a sippy cup, wooden car, touch and feel book and a teddy that was just like my little guys usual comforter. It was so perfect. I just wanted to pass on my appreciation, I’ve paid it forward so the next Mum can have the same joy on a trying day.’
