Every year, Love It Styling, together with Love It Landscaping, work together to hold an annual fundraiser for Miracle Babies Foundation. Miracle Babies Foundation is Australia’s leading organisaiton supporting premature and sick newborns, their families and the hospitals that care for them, and is an agency very close to our hearts.
Since 2005, Miracle Babies Foundation has been passionate in developing and providing vital programs and resources to support and enhance a family’s experience from a threatened pregnancy, hospital journey with a premature or sick newborn, the transition to home and beyond.
“Every year in Australia around 48,000 newborn babies require the help of a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Special Care Nursery (SCN). 27,000 of these babies are born premature and up to 1,000 babies lose their fight for life. “

This year we held our annual gala fundraising event at Melbourne’s iconic Crown Towers. This event has been the highlight of our business year so far, bringing together dedication, donations and support from businesses throughout Australia to help raise much needed funds for this great cause.
Miracle Babies Foundation is a cause that is very near and dear to our hearts. Having had three babies born extremely prematurely has changed our lives, forever. We have organisations like the Miracle Babies Foundation to thank for the amazing, life-changing work that they do.
So far, we have raised an incredible total of $32,628.49 for Miracle Babies. This year’s funds will go towards expanding Miracle Babies’ reach to support more families having experienced a premature newborn. This support will be via a second NurtureGroup (find out more about these NurtureGroups here) in Victoria. These groups provide unparalleled support and assistance to families who truly need it.
"The Miracle Babies Foundation NurtureGroup is a great place to meet other families who really understand the emotional roller coaster we went through and issues that still affect us today. The support we receive from other families is so uplifting and to watch the children together is very special" -Kelly Docherty, mum to twin girls Kiana and Maddison, born at 31 weeks
A special thanks to Kylie Pussel, Miracle Babies CEO for attending and speaking on the night, to Miracle Babies Ambassador Danielle Matthews for singing on the night and to Miracle parents, Alyce and Mark for sharing their journey and helping to raise awareness for the Miracle Babies cause.
