i make.you wear it

Every child has a right to grow up and not be blemished by child abuse and neglect.  As parents the fight against child abuse and neglect is very close to our hearts.

NAPCAN – the National Association for Prevention against Child Abuse and Neglect makes it their mission to prevent child abuse and neglect and to ensure the safety and wellbeing of every Australian child.  Rachel Burke is the amazing lady behind “i make. you wear it.” fashion/craft project.  Rachel’s project embarked on making a dress every Saturday evening from 7 August until 1 January, in the space of about 2-3 hours, for a range of different ladies. This endeavour is all in pursuit of raising $25,000 for NAPCAN: Preventing Child Abuse in Australia, and contributing to the wonderful work that they do to improve the lives and wellbeing of children.  How amazing! 

Rachel’s project has drawn to and end and she is celebrating and so she should.
