One Mother To Another
When Cha Cha partner Greenfields in Albert Park (yes they serve my pretty pink tea lattes in the eatery) asked if I would like to support  St Kilda Mums celebrate 'One Mother To Another' I couldn't have been more excited!
St Kilda Mums is a pretty amazing story. Run by volunteers, they believe that by reusing and recycling much-loved babies' and children's gear, you not only share the joy of motherhood with each other, but you save the earth's precious resources too. 

Leading up to Mothers Day they celebrate the 'One Mother To Another' initiative which encourages mums to make up and donate a gift bag's of women’s toiletries for mum's less fortunate.  Mums who might be living in a refuge, their house might have burnt down, or sadly might be homeless. 

Each gift bag was filled with toiletries you would need if you had nothing. St Kilda Mums then distributed the gifts to a mum's in need. And to spread the love, each little gift bag had a note for another mother to let them know they are cared for. Such a great cause huh! 

 On Friday 5 May, 2017 The Mother's Day Luncheon at Greenfields took place to raise vital funds for St Kilda Mums and celebrate the success of the 'One Mother To Another' initiative.

To kick off the luncheon guests were treated to signature Cha Cha Pink Tea Pina Colada's. Who doesn't love pina coladas, especially when they are pink! Not to mention we were in good company along side Veuve Clicquot. Perfect combination really, infact I have been known to add a little Veuve to my iced tea! 

Scroll through the photos and ill include the recipes at the bottom on the blog so you too can shop the range and be inspired with Cha Cha at your next event.
