Help needed ! Victoria Fire Victims !
If your looking to help out the Victorian Fire Victims then this is a perfect way. I am hoping to get some done today. Am looking through my Fiskars Cupboard as we speak. I am sure that everyone out there has a few things they could chuck together to help this cause out. Here's the details:
Well girls, I have got only one thing to say to you all:
YOU ARE A BUNCH OF ABSOLUTE LEGENDS AND YOU SHOULD ALL BE BRONZED AND GIVEN A PACK OF NEVERENDING TIM TAMS AND A JAMIE DURIE LOOK-A-LIKE TO FEED THEM TO YOU!!
Seriously, the response to this project has been humungous and incredible, to say the least. At first I was looking at putting together maybe 100 albums and I thought that might be stretching things a bit - now I think we could possibly put together over 500 albums. I mean it - and the list of helpers gets bigger by the hour!
So far I have several hundred offers of LO’s as well as albums from the wholesalers such as Aussie Scrap Source and Lulu’s as well as Mette from Melbourne who is donating a huge supply of albums - you rock! Not to mention the wonderful Scrapping stores that have come on board as collection points and who are holding Crop Nights as well as mailing me the LO’s en masse. I think you are just AWESOME. Really, you bring tears to my eyes.
If you are thinking of still contributing PLEASE DO SO as the more LO’s we receive, the more albums we can put together. There were 1069 houses lost, so that means we need 1069 albums.
I will keep updating with the count of how many albums we have and how many more we need, ok?

FOR THOSE OF YOU FROM THE U.K AND EUROPE WHO ARE CONTRIBUTING, please read below:
The drop off point for you is:
You can send your LO’s to Kristin NO LATER than Feb 28th in order to make the plane on time. Please be aware that there is a limit to how many Kristin can bring over (due to weight), so be advised that I may have to close off the drop off point if there are too many and you will have to post as normal.
I will have Drop Off Points established soon for all Sydney Metro Regions. Please keep checking back on this Blog for more details, ok?!
Very soon I will have some photos to show you of my lounge room which has now become the “Headquarters” of this project. We are accepting LO’s and albums from overseas as well - so if you are reading this from another part of the world, please pitch in! So far we have LO’s coming in from North America, Canada, Hawaii, New Zealand, Malaysia, the Phillipines, Dubai, the Netherlands, the UK, Italy and Spain. WOOHOO!
I am planning on visiting my Post Office tomorrow (first to set up an account and second to apologise for all the extra work he’s going to have over the next month lol).
The next step in this process is to please keep getting the word out! Any of you who think we have enough support, please send us your LO’s. I would dearly love to give every displaced family at least one album - maybe more if we can manage it.
So if you would still like to contribute, please do so by leaving me a comment at the end of this post and will get back to you ASAP
Many thanks to you all for being such an awesome bunch of supporters - well done!
