Softies For Mirabel 2013

It's Softies For Mirabel is back again in 2014! 

Softies For Mirabel is a handmade toy drive. We all join forces and make a new toy (or a few!) for The Mirabel Foundation kids.

The Mirabel Foundation supports kids who are affected by parental substance abuse (and their extended family/carers.)  It's important to reach out to these great kids and to raise awareness for Mirabel.  

If you'd like to get a feel for how this works, you can see previous year's toys in the Softies For Mirabel Flickr group! Or search the #softiesformirabel tag on Instagram.

This year, they've changed things up a bit!  The CAE have offered us a great display space in their InfoShop where the softies will be displayed this December. Thank YOU to Sue and the lovely CAE people.  (It's in Degraves St so it's SUPER EASY to access!)

Toys can be knitted, crocheted or sewn. They need to be suitable for great kids as they may well become someone's NEW BEST FRIEND! There are no other special requirements re materials or the like. Will you help us by making a toy? Perhaps your craft group, workmates or school would like to help too?!

And please if you take part make sure you share your creations over on the BrisStyle FB Page as we'd love to see what you have made!
