About the project

Mum's Exercise Group Australia (MEGA) is a social enterprise that operates as a not-for-profit, run solely by volunteers – mums supporting mums to improve their physical, social and emotional wellbeing.

In order to operate MEGA is required to hold Public Liability Insurance and Volunteer, Professional Indemnity and Workers Compensation Insurance, Australian Music License, as well as other operational bills. In order to stay afloat, we need $10,000 a year.

MEGA had been covering these costs through a small membership fee for our face-to-face events in Canberra. When COVID hit in 2020, our membership ceased - meaning our income has been non-existent for a year. However, COVID has not stopped the bills.

We have applied for numerous grants during 2020 and have been successful with a few but unfortunately, they do not cover the operational expenses required to run MEGA.

Without further financial support, MEGA's future is on the line. 

We are calling on our passionate and caring community to make a donation to support MEGA so that we can continue to help Australian mothers and mothers-to-be! 

All donations, no matter the amount, will help MEGA survive and ensure that mums can continue to enjoy the physical, social and emotional benefits that MEGA provides. 

We have partnered with the Australian Sports Foundation so that donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. 

Do you love MEGA and want to help more? Or maybe you are not in a financial position to currently assist but would still like to help in other ways. Either way – you can help by sharing a link to our fundraising page with a message about what MEGA means to you on your social media pages or send it directly to family, friends, or your favourite businesses.

    Mega illawarra has been great for me finding some beautiful mummas who have become forever friends.

    MEGA was so important to me with bub #1, they helped me gain confidence back and happiness with my new mum bod. Unfortunately with COVID I wasn't able to enjoy the same benefits with bub #2 and I hope when the time is right, they'll still be around to help me.
