Would you like to help??????????????

This is a photo of a gorgeous Koala who survived the terror of the Victorian fires. A fire fighter stopped to give her - SAM - some water - she ended up drinking 3 bottles of water. How sweet!!!!

MY FRIEND LYN EXPLAINED HOW TO ADD THIS POST SO IT APPEARS AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE ALL THE TIME - THANKS LYN!!!! PLEASE DONT FORGET TO KEEP SCROLLING DOWN THE PAGE AS I WILL BE ADDING NEW POSTS - ITS JUST THAT THIS ONE WILL ALWAYS BE AT THE TOP. TA!!!!

I have just had a phone call from my sister and I've gotta say I'm a bit excited!!!!.

A local craft group in her town is running a Card Drive for the Fire Victims.
I am going to run one too. Would you like to join in?????

All you need to do is make some cards or if you have any in your stash made up already. Then you can either pop $5.00 in the card yourself or maybe friends and family would like to give you the $5.00. (The idea would be for the victims to buy something just for themselves)

PLEASE MAKE CARDS BRIGHT AND CHEERY. I THINK SENTIMENTS SHOULD BE SOMETHING LIKE "THINKING OF YOU" THAT TYPE OF THING.
ON THE INSIDE OF THE CARD JUST WRITE WORDS OF SUPPORT AND COMFORT - NOTHING TOO DEEP or RELIGIOUS AS CARDS WILL BE GOING TO ALL WALKS OF LIFE. ALSO KEEP IN MIND TO MAKE SOME CARDS FOR THE KIDDIES - THEY WOULD LOVE TO SEE A BRIGHT CARD TOO.
(PLACE CARDS/MONEY IN ENVELOPES BUT PLEASE DO NOT SEAL THEM IN CASE THE AUTHORITIES WOULD LIKE TO INSPECT THEM!!!!!!!)
I will then organize for these cards to be sent to the fire victims. I will not be sending them through the post - I will arrange for them to be delivered to them so they get to the right people.
If you would like to join in please send all cards to me. You can contact me via email for my postal address. (Just click on my Profile at the side bar to find the email link -ta)
When you are ready to post please just drop me a line to let me know so I can keep an eye on the postie. Ta

Thanks for your support.

Luv Sandie

(P.S. I am getting some fantastic feedback and have cards being made all over the state and interstate. Thank you for your support!!!!!!!! I will accept cards up til say next Thursday the 26th February and will hopefully deliver them on Friday 27th)

Hi Sandie

I found your blog via Scrapbook Capital and I think it is great that you
are organising a card drive. I would love to participate so if you
could email me your address so I can post them out to you, I will work
on some this weekend and send them to you Monday.

Just a quick question(s) do we put our name on the inside to say who it
is from and when sealing it in an envelope do we just write on the
outside who the card suits ie. boy, girl etc?

Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.
Here is my email address
