Bun in the Oven
The Gidget Foundation launches Bun In The Oven during Perinatal Depression & Anxiety Awareness Week each year, though encourages its supporters to host their very own Bun In The Oven at any time throughout the year.
How can you host a Bun In The Oven event? Simply plan a get together or host a casual brunch, morning tea or perhaps a 5 o’clock catch up with friends, family or workmates. Be creative and have fun while helping to raise awareness and vital funds to support the work of the Gidget Foundation.
Please register so we know a little more about your event. Once your event is registered we’ll send you fundraising tips & tricks and collateral templates to help you make this an event to remember!
“Struggling with adjustment issues after the arrival of my second child, I wanted to do something positive and help other families who may be feeling the same.
This was my first attempt at hosting a fundraiser and I decided to go all out – styling, catering, goodie bags, a raffle and even an auction of items generously donated by local businesses.
With my nerves settling as guests arrived, I briefly relayed my story before handing over to a Gidget Foundation representative who kindly told us all a little more about the Foundation’s establishment and work.
Thanks to social media, my network and the Gidget Foundation providing signage and brochures, I successfully hosted my inaugural Bun in the Oven event, raising just under $3,500. Before the morning was over, many guests, including some I didn’t even know personally, had already asked if I will be doing it again next year; my answer, yes!”Nicole Ganz
