30th September 2019
On the first day of our BAP Leadership Day event, members had the privilege to volunteer at Life’s Little Treasures for two shifts, 2-3 hours each. Members started their shift learning about what Life’s Little Treasures does as a not for profit organisation, providing support and education for families with premature or sick children. The rest of the shift was spent packing “Little Bags of Calm”, mindfulness kits for the families to exercise much-needed self care. Tasks included sticking teabags onto card, packing pocket hearts into plastic bags and preparing Milestone cards for families to celebrate milestones with their child.
All members truly enjoyed the experience giving back to the community, and it was great to spend time getting to know students from BAP Monash University too!
A huge thank you to the Committee members of BAP UniMelb and Monash who made this wholesome event possible.
