    Lightbulb If not a gift for the Royal baby, for who?

    The Royal Baby Boy has been born!

    We think Kate could use a care package from a certain Australian parenting website that has been following her royal pregnancy

    What do you reckon? Should we send her something from her friends at the Bub Hub?

    If yes, what typical Aussie parenting products should we include?

    No lol I'm sure she will be inundated with stuff. I'm sure people's good will could be much better used doing a care package for homeless kids, women fleeing DV or sponsoring a child.

    But then I've never been a fan of the royals

    No, I really don't think so.

    There are however many needy people in Australia who would love a gift from BH
    That is true, and in the past they have distributed the gifts to many charities in the UK.

    Really? I think a donation to one of their charities is sufficient... I believe one of their charities is involved with conservation, so sending a gift that would never get to them/be shoved in a store room with the other million token gifts from the plebs is a tad ironic...

    Yep give the care package to a family in need or donate money to charity.

    I think we're coming to a bit of a consensus here.

    Who do you think we should something to then? What cause (preferably Australian) do you feel most passionately about, and would like us to help?

    We can do another vote, find out who to send something to, then figure out how to help.
