Each year we have Christmas Charity Workshop with a raffle which raises money for the materials to make these cards and to stock the boxes for the hospital.
This idea was started for the Mater Hospital by the Paper Angels group of demonstrators led by Liz Collett. These cards are used to record the footprints of still born babies so that their parents can take the card home. In the past our money has gone to the Mater but this year we are bringing it closer to home at the Gold Coast Hospital.
We had all the bits and pieces for the cards and one of my team members Karen and I set to work sewing the butterflies in place and sticking layers together. Thanks Karen!
And this is me with the lovely Emma of the Gold Coast Hospital Foundation as she receives the boxes. Emma has been so enthusiastic and excited by our offer - she is a fantastic ambassador for the hospital.
The boxes contain the cards plus ink pads and refills, snail adhesives, embossing powders and a heat gun. We are hoping to provide two more boxes to be used in other areas of the hospital.
Our charity day is coming up soon on November 1st. Thanks to everyone who has booked in.
Thanks for stopping by!
