Basically Babies is a registered charity that is committed to supporting families in extreme need with newborns in the greater Edmonton area through the provision of a baby layette. We offer the gift of a complete first year’s wardrobe for these infants in the form of a beautiful color-coordinated basket filled with clothing, outerwear, blankets, toys, storybooks, sleepers, undershirts, footwear and other baby essentials. (We do not provide diapers or formula.) A Basically Babies Layette is a gift intended to communicate worth, value, respect and dignity to each family. We want each layette to be a beautiful gift that anyone would be thrilled to receive, not just a basket full of used clothing.
We deliver these beautiful and practical gifts through the 90 non-profit, social work and health care agencies that we partner with. These agencies are working with families long-term on a life skill building basis. They assess extreme need and apply on behalf of the families, then pick up the layette and deliver the layette to the families who are in need.
