For our next charity crochet/knit, we are making for Brisbane's DIG IN organisation. We are making blankets, scarves, beanies, gloves, shawls - anything to help keep the cold at bay for those who don't have a home or those who are struggling to make ends meet.
Please join us from 1-3pm, 1st Sunday of each month for our crochet and knit for Charity afternoons. If you can't make it, but would still like to contribute, you are welcome to drop off items at our Samford store during May & June.
If you don't have a pattern or not sure what to make....don't worry! Just cast on 30 stitches and knit - you'll have created a scarf in no time! Maybe sew the ends together and you'll have a cosy cowl.
What colour will you choose? Bright will always make someone smile!
All knitted or crocheted contributions are received with many thanks!
We have previously supported:
We are Australia’s foremost charity dedicated to providing support, friendship and information, specifically tailored for families of premature or sick babies.
To ensure that all families enduring the difficult and life-changing experience of having a premature or sick baby have easy access to critical information and community support to help make a difference to them and their child.
Education and information for parents are crucial to getting the best possible outcomes for premature and sick babies; it empowers families and enables them to become their child’s advocate. We support families in hospital (Neonatal Intensive Care and Special Care Units) and in the community when families come home.
The Life’s Little Treasures Foundation is built around #familieshelpingfamilies. Our community are supportive, passionate and generous and is made up of families, friends, health professionals and supporters who all understand and care because they have been there too.
From February to March 2023, we will be making items for premature babies.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION DIRECT FROM LIFE'S LITTLE TREASURES WEBSITE:
Your donations will be going to our smallest and most vulnerable babies and so we must ensure our donations are in keeping with hospital guidelines. We have put together some answers to our most common questions. Should require any further information please contact our volunteer Knitting and Sewing Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
