It's time for the 2nd Annual Sew Pink event!
Join Craft Land, Brother Sewing Machines and Brest Friends in supporting breast cancer awareness in Dubai. "24 Hours of Sewing" takes place for 12 hours each day on Friday October 19th and Saturday October 20th at the first floor Atrium in Town Center.
We had an excellent turnout last year (see: http://mycraftland.blogspot.com/2011/10/24-hours-of-sewing-huge-success.html), and we made over 300 care packs for breast cancer surgery patients. This year we hope to make even more!
|2011 - cushions & volunteers|
Here's how you can be involved:
Volunteers are needed for to make special cushions and bags for women undergoing breast cancer treatment; the care packs will be distributed via Brest Friends and medical networks in the UAE. We need volunteers who can use a sewing machine, but it's ok if you don't know how...we also need willing hands for cutting, stuffing, finishing etc. Last year's event saw lots of families participating - so sign up your husband and kids to help out and make a day of it! You can volunteer for as little as one hour, but you can also sign up for as many shifts as you'd like. Don't forget, there are several great restaurants in our little Town Center - lots of choices for afternoon tea or a snack.
We also need a few Super Volunteers who would be willing to sign up for 3-hour shifts and help supervise other volunteers. Just mention in your email if you are willing to be a boss!
Supplies and instruction are provided by Craft Land and Brother UAE are donating sewing machines for the event.
To volunteer, email Jennifer Haack at: firstname.lastname@example.org or stop in to Craft Land and sign up in person.
Sign up today, and encourage friends and family to join in too... All volunteers will get a goody bag for helping out, not to mention the reward of feeling great for helping someone who's going through a tough time!
