Australian Charity Listing
Please note: Because I live in Australia I only list Australian charities.
Angel Blanket Australia Inc
Angel Blanket Australia is a volunteer, not-for-profit organisation based in New South Wales. We are attempting to support families dealing with the loss of their baby through miscarriage or stillbirth.
Losing a baby is heartbreaking, and often the grieving parents don’t have a baby blanket with them in hospital due to the unexpected nature of miscarriage or stillbirth. It is saddening when hospitals do not have on hand an option to suit such little ones, and sometimes have to present babies on a tray to the parent(s).
We want to offer some support at this traumatic time and provide handmade blankets to hospitals for babies born that can be held (14-23 weeks old).
We are seeking 50 large, 50 medium and 50 small pairs of knitted socks
for patients to wear and take with them as a gift from Can Assist, after
their stay at the Jean Colvin Hospital.
These patients come from rural NSW and stay on average 6 weeks whilst they undergo cancer treatment. We are wanting to make their stay as comfortable as possible and as such, we are creating a welcome pack for them when they arrive. The socks will be a lovely touch of warmth and comfort.
Socks are to be sent to:

Knitting for Brisbane's Needy
Do you love to knit/crochet, want to help the needy?
We invite other knitters/crocheters to join us and make items to be donated to charities who assist the homeless, abused, women/children's refuges, needy families, prem babies, cancer patients, animal shelters etc.
The charities must give the items we donate DIRECTLY to those in need.
Charities have told us how much this would be appreciated as people don't tend to donate warm clothing for Queensland's needy as they think it doesn't get cold enough here but it does, especially for those living on the streets in the cold and wet. They also like to be able to give some NEW items to the needy as it boosts their self confidence.
