First things first, I’d love to say thank you to everyone who made something for Softies For Mirabel or shared the campaign with their people. The 2015-2016 campaign is now officially done! (The next campaign should launch late this year, if you were wondering!)
So many gorgeous handmade toys have now made their way to The Mirabel Foundation, ready to be matched with their new buddies there. (If you don’t know, Mirabel supports kids who have been abandoned or orphaned due to parental illicit substance abuse.)
We can not thank you enough for joining in and doing a good thing.If you’d like to see some of the ace toys people made, head over here.Now, perhaps you have busy fingers and are keen to get making for someone else? You are a blooming good sort, if so. *nods* I thought I would round up some OTHER projects people like you can get involved in.Here’s the beginnings of a list…
Softies For Mirabel – make a toy for a child who has been abandoned or orphaned due to parental illicit substance abuse
