Handmade Help

There has been such an amazing response to helping all the people affected by the bushfires.

My blogging friend Keryn emailed me about the blog 'Handmade Help'. Through this blog people can donate handmade goods that are then sold, with the money going to the Red Cross and Wildlife Victoria. They are also coordinating some other projects and have a great list on their right sidebar of so many ways to help. What a great idea.

Through this blog I found the 'OzBushfireAppeal' etsy shop. Many generous people have listed handmade items in this shop and all sales go to the Red Cross. They have already raised an amazing $10,000. Wow! Here are some of my current favourites from the shop:

I love the atmosphere this Winter Tree photo block conjures up.

These pears look so soft and tactile.

These whales would look so good in big white box frames in a little boy's room. Grab them before I do!

What an amazing photo! And the tones are beautiful.

So bizarre! I was just talking to a lady this morning who is involved with the Oz Bushfire site and told her I was going to let you know about it in Turkey. I have just copied the link to paste on your site and you have beaten me to it! It's a great fundraising idea. Maybe you could donate one out of your arsenal of knitted hats for sale - a bit hot for purchasing here at this time of year but it's cold somewhere. Love to you all from Flemo xxx
