Good people make good things happen

Have you heard of the rather awesome Mirabel foundation?

Mirabel assists children who have been orphaned or abandoned due to parental illicit drug use and are now in the care of extended family (kinship care). Mirabel believes that every child deserves a childhood and its mission is to break the destructive cycle of addiction.

Mirabel supports children aged 0-17 years and works at restoring a child’s sense of self-worth, belonging and hope for the future in order for them to reach their full potential as young adults.

Pretty awesome hey? Equally awesome is the Softies for Mirabel campaign organised by the lovely Pip of Meet me at Mikes. You can make a cute softie of your own and it will be donated to a child from Mirabel. I met a couple of women from the Mirabel Foundation last night, amazing work they do! You can find out more info from Pip's website here. I'm thinking I'll make some more duck softies and maybe some dinosaurs!

I went along to the launch of Pip's new book Sew Tea La Do! It was held at the lovely Captains of Industry and was great fun! I think you should buy a copy of this book, it will impress you no end, it's really well made with the most beautiful photographs and projects for everyone. I like people who make things happen. It's very easy to complain rather than do, and I think Pip is a great example of someone who works hard and makes things happen. We should all be inspired by that really.

Have you made something good happen lately? Email me at so I can share the goodness! xx
