Current Campaign

The Newborn Intensive Care Foundation (NICF) is urging people from the Canberra region to take the bake challenge to raise funds to purchase medical equipment to treat sick newborn babies admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit a Canberra Hospital.

To raise the funds needed, the NICF will officially run Bake for Babies 2022 from 1 June to 31 August. But you can Bake for Babies any time of the year.

You can bake whatever you like – scones, cakes, pizzas, muffins, biscuits, a slice, whatever, and sell to friends, family or colleagues and then deposit the proceeds into the NICF Bake for Babies account.

If you are like many and your scones turn out more like ANZAC biscuits, maybe people will sponsor you not to bake. 

The concept is as broad as you like to make it. So will you take the bake challenge?
