Pampers lanuch their #BetterForBaby with a heart warming video & five £1,000 grants

Today, Pampers release a short film which showcases just how babies bring out the best in us all; indeed, there’s nothing we wouldn’t do to make life #BetterForBaby.

Whether it's holding the door open for a mum with a pram, a parent working over-time to save enough money to treat their little ones this Christmas or a random stranger taking an interest in your son or daughter in the cafe, by pulling silly faces, there is nothing we wouldn't do to nurture, protect and ensure life is #BetterForBaby. I think the new Pampers video highlights this and shows that babies can truly bring the best out of us!

To help make life better for babies this festive season, Pampers want to help spread the cheer by pledging to help make life #BetterForBaby in local communities. Celebrating all that people do to enhance the lives of little ones, Pampers are offering five £1,000 grants, to help UK consumers make life #BetterForBaby in their local areas.

Maybe you want to improve some much-needed changing facilities, supply nappies and blankets to a local shelter, or update playtime equipment for a community nursery… anything goes!

I have already put forward Corrina and Friends cafe in Harrogate forward for the bursary. A charity that aims to help the homeless and vulnerable families within the Harrogate Borough area gain access to food, clothing, and other necessities in order to remain healthy and get themselves back on their feet.

Inspired by The Real Junkfood Project in Leeds, Corrina decided to open Harrogate’s first non-profit pay-what-you-feel cafe, Corrina & Friends Community Cafe. The cafe operates like any other cafe, except we intercept surplus food from businesses and use these ingredients to make delicious meals with all of the proceeds going to the Homeless and Vulnerable Project. Every day at 5pm, the cafe opens up to the homeless and vulnerable to take any leftover or suspended meals or food.

To keep the cafe open the need to raise £2000 per month and the majority of the funds are either raised through the cafe, donations from the public and the public's fundraising efforts. The public donate their own time to help run the cafe, from cooking the food to cleaning everyone mucks in!
I put the charity for for the bursary as that money will go a long way and can go towards helping vulnerable families and babies get the supplies they need to survive,  as well as ensuring the homeless receive the help, support and food they so desperately need.
Corrina has created something amazing and the local community have rallied around her and other volunteers to make the cafe a huge success. Handing over the Pamper bursary would be one of the most incredible and proudest moments of my life, so fingers crossed!

If you know of a local project that needs help you can apply for one of the 5 bursaries simply by watching and sharing the film, and telling Pampers how they pledge to make life #BetterForBaby in their community.
