I CAN'T believe my birthday was a week ago. It seems like so much has happened since then. Nothing particularly momentous, just life stuff.
A birthday always seems to mobilise me - another year gone, so much to do, so little time. This year's a big one. I have lots happening at work and my voluntary work with the Girl Guides has stepped up a notch. So much so, I'm asking for your help.
Lengths of six-strand embroidery thread. Any colour but particularly tones of red and green. The lengths need to be about 2m long, or a skein, if you're prepared to part with it. In fact, when you're next at your local craft store, I'd be thrilled if you bought us a skein.
WHAT'S IT FOR
The embroidery thread will be used by Girl Guides to make woven friendship bracelets. The bracelets will be sold in an Indian Girl Guide centre to raise funds for a project supporting the elimination of violence against women.
It's an ongoing project but will be promoted during International Women's Day on Thursday and the bracelets will be made at a large Girl Guide camp, or Jamboree, at Canberra in April.
WHERE DO I SEND STUFF
If you're able to help, click "like" on my Facebook page so I can give credit where credit's due and send your embroidery threads to: Girl Guides NSW & ACT advocacy liaison, c/- Locked Bag 950, Strawberry Hills, NSW, 2012.
Oh, and please do spread the word...
And, thank you.
