after my market on saturday i popped around the corner and dropped off my 'softies for mirabel' to the ever lovely pip at 'meet me at mikes'.
its such a great idea, and pip does such a great job of collecting and displaying all the softies before they go out to awesome kids just in time for christmas.
The Mirabel Foundation is based in Melbourne, they do great work helping kids who have been orphaned or abandoned due to their Mum or Dad's drug addiction. most of the kids end up being cared for by their grandparents.
Mirabel provides assistance and counselling in all sorts of ways to help the families.
the softies for mirabel project is just one way we can make a little difference and make sure these awesome kids know people care.
this year i handed in 4 softies, and i think ill probably send in some more (if all goes well)
so get on board, you dont have to be the most amazing sewer of all time, just willing to donate.
