Help The Children of The Queensland Floods, Australia

Thursday, January 13, 2011



A childs lost Teddy floats away in the Queensland Floods, Australia (source)
With more than 2 dozens towns flooded, 15 people dead, 61 people unaccounted for and thousands of families seeking refuge in emergency shelters, what on earth are the children thinking? Source



This Doll Drive is Completed!
Congratulations Everyone!

Steph from Mon Petit Poppet has been thinking the same thing, and has a wonderful plan.

“Picture walking back into your home and every single item you own is either washed away or ruined by water and mud...... it really is unfathomable!!! Then imagine that through the eyes of a five year old!

I would love to provide each and every child with a small handmade softie to comfort them in this dark time and give them hope that things will get better.”


If you would like to help by making a doll for a child who has lost everything, please leave a comment on Steph's blog  HERE (LINK)  with your email address expressing your desire to help so that she can send you her mailing address in Australia.

Thanks Everyone for your big hearts and Happy Sewing!

Hi Sarah, It looks like great minds think a like. I also have set up a Dolly Drive on my blog and was wondering if you could post about it on you blog to get more exposure.

I have e-mailed Steph already and she will possibly help me with distributing dolls/toys that we make and collect.

Thanks
Jacki
