TWO HUNDRED AND NINETY SEVEN HANDMADE TOYS!
and A FEW BOOKS AND OTHER GIFTS TOO!
Thank you to all of you for being part of Softies for Mirabel again. All the toys are tripping off in the Mirabel Foundation van this morning. They’re packed up, safe as houses, each one kissed goodbye.
At Mirabel, the very ace people will sort them and wrap them up and send them off to some great kids who will be so pleased to see them on Christmas morning.
I’m really looking forward to doing this again in 2009. It will be the third year of our handmade appeal – and it feels really good to be able to do something important for the community, with a whole lot of nice people like you. Extra special thanks to The Littles and also to Leah and her friends for their bountiful donations. You’ve all done SUCH a beautiful job.
Don’t forget that if you have photos of a softie you sent in – please upload them to the Flickr pool so everyone can have a peep!
