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 color-coordinated basket filled with clothing, outerwear, blankets, toys, storybooks, sleepers, undershirts, footwear and other baby essentials.  We call these packaged gifts “layettes”. 

Event Announcement

On Saturday, May 9 we’re hosting our 5th Annual Mother’s Day Brunch & Silent Auction. Our signature fund raising event brings together family, friends, volunteers, and supporters to celebrate motherhood and raise funds in support of our cause.

This year’s Shoes & Shortcake themed-event will be a fun-filled morning complete with a delicious brunch (food and beverage donated by Sawmill), a fashion show that is all about shoes, hundreds of silent auction items and of course, shortcake for dessert!

For more information or to purchase tickets, email office@basicallybabies.org, call (780) 989-0180 or drop in at 14839 118 Avenue. All funds raised directly support the charitable work of Basically Babies.
