Basically Babies

Basically Babies is a registered charity that works to provide for the basic outfitting needs of newborn babies born to families in extreme need in the greater Edmonton area. We offer the gift of a complete first year’s wardrobe for these infants in the form of a beautiful colour-coordinated basket filled with clothing, outerwear, blankets, toys, storybooks, sleepers, undershirts, footwear and other baby essentials. We call these packaged gifts “Layettes” and they are both practical and beautiful, providing hope and dignity to those who receive them.

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 do not use items that are damaged, stained or in poor condition.  We welcome your donations of clean, good quality, gently used or new baby clothing and small infant-related items!
