Handmade Help

Handmade Helps Out is a group of crafty types who have joined forces to make raising money for the Red Cross and Wildlife Victoria more effective. Heaps of craft item sales and auctions are listed on the site with proceeds going to bushfire victims, as well as other ways crafty people can help out.

Have a look through the items, perhaps something will catch your eye. Think about the birthday and other gifts you will want to give this year.

My own felt hanging auction is still open until tomorrow evening, you can bid on it here. In addition to donating the entire proceeds to the Red Cross, I will donate an equal amount to Wildlife Victoria.

So a friend of mine, a very talented lady is looking at how she can help out down in Vic. SHe lives in Sydney, and would like to find out how she could assist in community programs, or simply with some of the many crafts based business' down there. Is there a register of projects that are underway anywhere?

I've been googling a fair bit to try and find what's happening in the various areas, but it appears it may actually still be too early for this?
