Our first 513 cool neck ties are ready for Rob, our contact within the Rural Fire Department to collect.
They will be collected this week and sent out all over Australia.
Thank you to our neighbours son who bagged and packed 90% of them during his school holiday.
Many hands make light work.
We have had 14 people help in different ways.
– Donating Water Crystals
(white crystals with no fertiliser mixed in)
– Donating Fabrics. (Every 1 metre makes 5 ties).
– Donating Zip lock bags. (Woolworths Cannon Hill)
– Donating their time to help where ever they could.
(Even bringing in their ironing board and iron to help if they can not sew).
A big thank you to you all. I could not have done it without your help.
Acknowledgement for those who gave us some of the required supplies.
Some I don’t know where they arrived from, they just arrived at my door.
