Baby Days Virtual Visits

Babies Who Volunteer Inc.(BWV) is a local grassroot non-profit organization.
Our operating premise is simple yet unique.
We believe that the resources needed to bring love, happiness and quality of life to our seniors can be found in our communities, our families and in our children. We believe that uniting seniors with babies is a powerful and practical way to enhance their quality of life.

Babies Who Volunteer is requesting assistance from you, the public, to assist in keeping our intergenerational programming accessible to our seniors during these unprecedented times. Seniors have been isolated even further for their protection from COVID-19. Babies Who Volunteer has established the need for our model to shift to ensure our seniors are not being forgotten at a time where they are at their most vulnerable. The decision has been made to shift to online visits to keep our seniors and volunteers connected to one another. 

With that said online visits are not necessarily easily accessible to all of the retirement residences and/or seniors that we regularly work with. Babies Who Volunteer, as many other organizations, did not anticipate a change to our business model or change in allocation of our budget. To ensure no senior is forgotten we are requesting funding to assist in the purchase of tablets for our new Virtual Visits. A Virtual Visit will be held on Zoom that can keep our youngest volunteers connected with our most vulnerable.

Your generous donation will go directly to purchasing 30 tablets the seniors can use to enjoy the company of our little volunteers, while in isolation from the safety of their rooms.
