I first heard about this charity when my niece Bec put a link on Facebook. I went over and had a look and thought maybe our stamp club could do something to help. For those who don't know Angels For The Forgotten are dedicated to making a real and tangible impact in the lives of the thousands of children who live in out-of-home care or crisis accommodation each year, through provision of special care packages, resources, information, services and support. Please take a look here
I contacted Melina Skidmore who is their CEO, to ask if they would like some home made cards for the kids and she said yes please...so that is how our little collection started. Stampin" Up! kindly donated supplies and we had a charity card making day. Unfortunately I chose a lousy day as most of my class ladies had things to do on that day (it was short notice) but our small group still managed to make over 200 cards on that day...thankyou to Katrina who travelled all the way from NSW to come and help, Christine, who also spent many hours helping me prepare card packs, Brooke, Emily and my daughter Ebony who helped out in the afternoon...thankyou so much ladies, the cards are beautiful...and here they are
Art, craft and school supplies..colouring books, sketch books, crayons, pencils, felt pens, diaries, glue sticks, stickers, glitter etc
toiletries and personal hygeine products...toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, conditioner, roll on deoderants, sanitary items, brushes, combs, hair ties, pocket tissues etc
new clothing...sox, jox, pajamas, hand made skirts and shorts, singlets, slippers, tea shirts, thongs (that's flip flops if you are from overseas lol)
I will be packing this stuff up next week and sending it on its way but will continue to collect...once again if you would like to help this worthwhile cause click on the link above...thanks everyone!
