For those of you who have been to a recent meet up you would know that
over the course of the next month we will be working with one of our
lovely Brown Owls members Lara on crafting beautiful items to help raise
money for the Leukaemia Foundation, specifically for the
Myleoproliferative Neoplasms (MPN) trust fund within the Research Trust
of the Foundation, an important area of research on a rare group of
diseases.

You can help out by coming along to a meet up in the next month to make
beautiful crafty things or to donate pre-loved books and handmade items
for a Mother’s Day market stall to help raise money. Read on for all of
the details!

How YOU can help while learning new crafty skills!

1. MAKE STUFF AT A MEET UP OR AT HOME
We have a number of crafting bees and meet ups coming up in the next
month where we will be learning new creative skills to make stuff to
sell on the market stall. Scroll down and read on for all of the details
and make sure you book in!

2. DONATE STUFF
Donate handmade goods and pre-loved books for us to sell on the market
stall to help raise money. You can also donate craft materials to use at
meet ups to make things to sell on the stall.

3. BUY A RAFFLE TICKET
Win a huge hamper of treats! Raffle tickets will be available for sale at each meet up and only cost $1 each!

4. VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME
Help out at a meet up or more importantly on the market day (26 April at The Gap Farmers Market).

All money raised from the market stall and raffle are split 50/50
between the Myleoproliferative Neoplasms (MPN) trust fund within the
Research Trust of the Leukaemia Foundation and the University of
Queensland Diamantina Institue (UQDI) of research.
