Hello Mama

What's the story behind the biz?
"Once upon a time, a Melbourne girl’s best friend lived far, far away in the red dirt of Broome. When she discovered her friend was pregnant, she immediately wanted to send a package full of TLC for her bestie. But alas! Every gift the girl found was old-school and not very fun at all.
‘Just because women have babies doesn’t mean they have to lose their identity and become giant dags!’ she exclaimed.
So she searched high and low, far and wide to find all of the very best items from around Australia.
Then she wrapped them in super fun packaging  and shipped them all the way to Broome.
Her friend was ecstatic and said ‘You are the best friend ever and you should create these for all the mamas out there.’ And so she did.
And all the mamas lived happily ever after with their tiny little humans and lactation cookies.

Some seriously lush gifts here "celebrating the baking of tiny humans". We particularly love This Little Mama Stayed Home gift pack perfect for the mamas going cray-cray with kids climbing the walls, the #bosslady mamas trying to juggle it all, the new mamas wishing their own mamas could help with the tiny human who just won't-stop-crying!

What's the story behind the biz?
We’re 2 mums who started GroupTogether to take the hassle out of collecting money for group gifts or fundraisers.

The great thing is that we've helped people avoid waste -unwanted gifts and landfill, our customers love that they can get help directly from us, we’ve made it easy to show appreciation to teachers, colleagues and friends. We’ve raised $250k for good causes from people donating a portion of their gifts.

You can organise your siblings to chip in and add a personal message and photo to a card. GroupTogether can also organise an e-gift card or gift from any of 22 popular retailers. All for zero cost. Every cent you collect goes into the gift from their retail partners.
