Backpacks for Aussie Kids

Hi Everyone,

Last week I made this gift set for the Backpacks for Aussie Kids upcoming auction...

If you haven't heard of them, this is their blurb from their auction facebook page:

Backpacks 4 Aussie Kids is a Charity set up to make backpacks filled with essential items for kids that are moved into emergency foster care. The majority of these kids are taken from their homes with nothing, but the clothes on their backs. Often situations call for kids to be taken immediately and moved into foster care homes with no basics or anything they can call their own, not even a toothbrush. The aim of BP4AK is to give the children something that is solely theirs, which can go with them where ever they go. Just a small bag filled with belongings for children can let them know someone is thinking of them, offer a sense of a belonging and put a smile on their faces whilst their lives seem completely out of their control.

The Auction starts on 22nd August at 10am (SA Time) & last bid by 28th August 9pm (SA Time). 
If you are able to donate to this auction check out:


I've done a few guest posts on their blog about cooking and crafting with the kids and I just think it's a great cause to support... Kids need to have something to call their own! And it's also a great help to those people that open their homes to foster kids.

Thanks for looking,
