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.

“I am really excited and honoured to be partnering with the Gidget Foundation Australia to raise funds for their incredible support services for expectant and new parents. We all know that parenthood is filled with challenges: lack of sleep, incessant crying (from your child and possibly you!), random tantrums in public, vegetables being rejected every meal time, endless washing, chasing… the list goes on! And on top of all of these experiences and challenges, parents are also often working or studying, so trying to get some time out is near impossible.

What better way for us all to have an opportunity to take some time out and talk a bit more about how things are going, than to share a morning or afternoon tea to raise funds for the Gidget Foundation? And of course healthy baking recipes are a specialty at The Healthy Mummy, which is one of the reasons why we’ve created Bun in the Oven.

Bun in the Oven is a way for you to get together with your friends and family, bake some delicious treats (loads of recipe inspiration has been provided in this book) and share a morning or afternoon tea or bake sale, raising money for the Gidget Foundation.

Since starting The Healthy Mummy, I’m most proud of the amazing community and support that has been developed. Mums supporting mums in all different ways, motivating and inspiring each other to live their best lives. I know you’ll all jump on board and start baking like crazy, so we can raise as much as we can to help someone who is going through a hard time and needs a helping hand.”

“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!”
