How can I help?

Thank you for caring.๐Ÿ’•

Repurpose your fabric or yarn

Instead of adding to landfill,
DONATE unwanted
FABRIC (for us to sew into
clothing, toys, quilts & accessories),
THREAD (sewing machine & overlocker),
ELASTIC, TRIMS & LACE;
YARN to knit or crochet wraps;
SEWING TOOLS & NOTIONS;
&
SEWING MACHINES or OVERLOCKERS

We support #waronwaste and #circulareconomy ethics.
Nothing useful is wasted.
If we can’t use it for our Care Kits,
we will pass it on to someone who can.

Vote EACH week

Did you know a simple free VOTE every week can also help?

We’re a very small charity
compared to the big guys,
but if we ever get enough votes to put us in the top 10,
we receive a $1k grant!ย
