Backpacks 4 VIC Kids
Backpacks 4 VIC kids is an Australian charity that provides essential items to Victorian children entering foster care and emergency accommodation, to assist in easing the feelings of loss and relocation.
Each year, 45,000 Australian children are placed into foster care or emergency accommodation, and quite often without any of their possessions. Run by volunteers, Backpacks 4 VIC Kids aim to aid children during their transition and provide the help and support they need by supplying backpacks and nappy bags to children aged 0-17 years.
In celebration of Christmas approaching, this month we are supporting Backpacks 4 VIC Kids and creating Santa sacks for the children. These Santa Sacks will be filled with gifts and given to the kids for Christmas.
Sewalongs are a great way to get inspired by what everyone creates, while giving to a worthy cause. If you’re new to sewing or embroidering this is a great chance to get involved and have fun no matter what the outcome. Any excuse to put your sewing and embroidery machines to good use is a great one.
