CRAFTY PARCELS FOR VIC BUSHFIRE WOMEN

Hello , I have been missing in action for a long time, or maybe just plain lazy at posting posts.
However, with the terrible events of the bushfires happening in Victoria over the past few days, I have been moved to do something constructive, (as well as donating cash to the Red Cross), so I have come up with the idea that, we bloggers, who are involed/do/ love crafts, gardening etc, could all get together and donate goods so that the many quilters, crafters. gardeners etc, will have some of lifes little goodies so that they can have some crafty therapy.
As we all know these wonderful people who have suffered so much over this period of time and who will continue to have a difficult time of it for a long while to come, the last thing that they will be buying will be the supplies to give themselves some crafty therapy, which can also be soul and mind therapy as well.
I have already contacted Tracy, ozquiltingmum.blogspot wo see if she and maybe some other people that she knows will be our Vic contact liasion person/people.
I will be quite happy to have the goods sent to me and I will forward them on (hoping that some local transport co. will take same, as they have already announced that they will take clothing etc.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you are able to help in any way, remembering that these people have lost everything, and that women/mothers will put their families needs before their own, so we will be able to provide these "sanity savers" .
Please do not hesitate to contact me, my email is: maunderscorepabarneyathotmaildotcom.
Cheers and Hugs,
Lorraine
