These handmade necklaces have been a market & pop up hit!
The perfect price point for Secret Santa, gift for the Teacher, Nieces, Aunties, young or old.
I was recently asked to donate some prizes to a fundraising race day for @conquercysticfibrosis - see the pics for the contents of each gift box 🎁 - and I decided to also pledge 100% of the proceeds from my necklace sales.
Our dear friends Lisa & Ben raised over $11k on the day...(incredible!), and today I transferred my takings.
Thank you to all of you who have bought one of the 24 x necklaces over the past few weeks.
Every bit counts right?
I've included information about the current battle against Cystic Fibrosis below from the @conquercysticfibrosis instagram page.
The war against Cystic Fibrosis is far from over.
Every day there are young people with CF in Australia who cannot concentrate on anything other than the simple act of breathing. There are collapsed lungs, feeding tubes insertions, new CF-related diabetes diagnoses made, ports placed and hopeful transplant recipients waiting to live or die.
In our homes, our children must still take about 30 doses of medicine and undergo treatments twice-daily to stay well or get better.
So while these images may be confronting, and we may sound negative, we must keep it real. There are many people with CF doing well and we're hopeful for a brighter future but we still have an incredibly long way to go.
We are excited that some of the new modulator medicines are here and more are on the way.
However this multi-faceted disease is still claiming lives.
We all know that children grow in the blink of an eye.
Yet for CF parents, we are always acutely aware that while they grow, so too does the damage inside their little bodies.
That is why CF research must be accelerated.
Please help us by funding the researchers who will unlock a longer future for the 3400 Australians with CF and those yet to be born.
The battle is far from over. * Please support our cause. You can sign up to be a CF Angel and make a small, regular donation to our cause at www.conquercysticfibrosis.com. We are 100% volunteer run which means all funds go to research.
