‘Unite’ events within Australia

We unite with River’s Gift in honour of our daughter Charlie. We are one big family, and are given so much support, we couldn’t have done it without them.

Through their 'Unite' program, River’s Gift has given us the inspiration, opportunity and support to hold an event that will not only honour Matty, but help fundraise to find a cure

Together we can make a difference in Stamping Out SIDS.

“When you lose a baby to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), your whole world falls apart and you feel so alone. You’re left with so many questions…

How am I going to survive?
Will I ever feel happy again?
How am I possibly going to be able to “get on with life”?…

We know how you feel.

We welcome you to unite with us and become a part of River’s Gift, Australia’s solely SIDS focused charity, actively Stamping Out SIDS.”

– Alex and Karl, founders of River’s Gift
