We are all doing our bit to help out the victims of the floods around Australia. Money is coming in, and volunteers by the thousands are helping with the clean up. People are cleaning, scrubbing, washing, removing items that were once loved and are now unable to be saved, repairing.
People are being offered money to help them rebuild, but I know women will use the money to help set up their children, their husband/partner. It is not a lot of money. Clothing has been donated - and they are now saying that they do not need more. They are swamped.
I believe that many women will buy for their family and not for themselves, so I am asking women around Australia to purchase a pack of Knickers, attach an encouraging note, and send them. I will put addresses below.
I do urge people, where possible to keep donating, or raising funds, but I know that there are thousands of women who have lost everything, and would love to have a fresh, clean, new pair of knickers and a heartwarming note. I know they will put their families first, and having little for themselves.
Go to a supermarket, store, and buy a pack of knickers - they must be packed/sealed and send them. They are light to post, and women all around Australia can help here.
What size? Any size will do. Attach a note and send them.
So buy a pack, add a note, put in large envelope/packet and send. Just get basic undies. A mix of colours is fine. All - white is not a good idea!
For the moment they can be sent to
Knickers with Notes,
PO Box 3500
TINGALPA DC 4173,
and I will give them to an organisation for distribution to those in need. I am communicating with a women's organisation for distribution. I will advise here.
