Helpful Love is a multi award-winning social enterprise, founded by Port Stephens Mumpreneur, Kim Oakhill in February 2016, following the tragic death of her friend's little girl.
Kim found herself feeling completely helpless, and wanted to do something that actually helped the family.
Flowers, while beautiful and thoughtful, can actually become a burden when received in abundance. The lack of vases, the constant flow of deliveries interrupting private grieving time, the mess and smell as the flowers die [not so helpful, but we don't think of the end game when we send a flower delivery.]
Kim searched for a one stop shop of practical, helpful services that the family could choose for themselves. She was unable to find what she needed, and so Helpful Love was born.
Kim lives on a 2 acre property in Medowie, NSW with her 2 young children and 2 red dogs (Kelpies!)
Her mission is to shake up traditions and change the way we support grieving families through practical help, not only in Australia, but across the globe.
