I have lots of projects at the moment. here is a quick list of them
I have been invited to 2 scout groups to do a conservation talk. One of the groups I am going to show them how to make Wildlife Rescue Pouches- we are going to sew some.
Custom Pouches MADE BY ME!
Last month we had an overlocker donated to us. It was from a lady that lives in Arthurs Creek. It used to be her mums. She had it sitting in her shed. She did not know how to use it and didn't know if it worked or not but she was confident that it would. We had another lady offer to take a look at it. It was all stuck. She cleaned it and then it worked. We went to her house and she showed us how to use it. My dad had a turn doing it. I didn't want to because I had never sewn before. Then when we got home dad showed me. It was really easy. I started with thin material and then started doing thick wooly fabrics. I can not make my own pouches. They are very easy with an overlocker.
This weekend I am making special pouches for Christine at Coopers Animal Refuge. These are sample ones mum made to make sure they were right. They ARE!! Christine gave us material- she just needed someone to make them. We came up with a pattern with her.
Lids for Wombats
I am collecting milk/juice lids to make wombat flaps. The flaps go on burrows and treat wombats for mange. If they don't get treatment, it kills them. Volunteers use these to treat them. I have a couple of local café's that are helping my by keeping their lids.
If you want to help you too can collect caps. You can contact your local wildlife group and they will be able to tell you where to send them to help wombats near you. Or you can drop them to 16 Parook Court, Diamond Creek VIC. There is a donation bin there.
THANK YOU to these businesses that are helping me (click in image for their facebook)
I sell Apples, Pears and eggs from local farmers to raise money for koala conservation and rescues. For the first two weeks of July- all my money that I raised selling apples, pears and eggs was donated to Hamilton Wildlife Shelter. A lady that cares for Koala's by the name of Janet, was in need of some money to pay vet bills and other costs that she had looking after some koalas. This ones name is Maise. I donated $110.00.
This month I got some very nice donations to help me. Thank you to these two businesses for their support.
Save the Koala Month
September is SAVE THE KOALA MONTH. I am once again raising money for the Australian Koala Foundation all through September. My goal is at least $360 which will pay for me to continue to "adopt" Misty from Dreamworld. The Australian Koala Foundation do so many great things for koala conservation. I am happy I can help them again. I will be at two local festivals raising money plus all the money I raise from my produce sales will be included. I have heaps of these boxes, I want to go to some local businesses and ask if they will put them on their counters for me for the month. I hope some of them can help me.
