In an Australian first the handmade community has come together to Collaborate for a Cause with 220 Facebook Businesses creating nearly 100 one of a kind handmade items to be auction this coming weekend (29th - 31 July) to raise fund for more than 40 Charities
“The aim of 'Collaborate for a Cause' is to promote friendship, understanding and fun throughout the Facebook handmade community, while raising important funds for charities.
“What sets it apart from other charity auctions is that it lets donors select their own charity recipient and that each donated item is a collaborative effort between two or more handmade businesses, meaning that every piece is truly exclusive.
Anna of King Billy contacted me to see if I would be interested in doing a collaborative project with her as part of the Facebook Collaborate for a cause project of course I said yes not only to help another person but to also see what Anna would make with the fabric I sent to her to work her magic with and boy she did just that, I sent up a pack of some of my newly printed red snowflake design printed calico and waited to see what she came up with.
Hasn't she done a superb job
“We chose to support Cure our Kids because of the fantastic support they give to families with kids that have Cancer, in the Oncology ward at Westmead Children’s Hospital in NSW.
