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 7 we’re hosting our 6th 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 Basically Babies.

This year’s “tulips & tabletops” themed-event will feature a delicious brunch and hundreds of silent auction items including the opportunity to bid on beautifully designed tabletop decor! To help provide inspiration for your own events, a number of special guests will be joining us to share valuable tips on entertaining and table-decorating!

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.
