The first two boxes that will hold our care packages have been completed! Yay! Look up the 'care packages' page to see what they look like. Thanks to Yvonne and all at Artistic Expressions.

We have our first official donation of items for our care packages. ABC Tissues NZ (the folk who make the Earthcare range) have kindly agreed to supply us enough boxes of tissues to add one to each care package for more than a year. Thank you so much for your kind-heartedness Stephanie Baas and Phillip Ta. We sincerel appreciate it!

A massive thank you to the very generous and talented Manda Grubner who is donating 10% of her November sales from her gorgeous handmade crochet goodies to Forever Present. If you are up for some ethical and funky xmas presents or treats for yourself check out her website: Captain Apricot to see her wares. Things for babies and adults. Thanks Manda!!!

Well the website is underway and we have a new Give a little page: in case anyone wants to start donating right now. We are waiting for some of our resources to be printed and for our first boxes to come back from local artists. Then it will be off to the SUDI Liason Officer at the coroner's office to talk about how we can get these packages off to families in need.
