Hey everyone!

I'm a Textiles teacher in country Vic and my Yr 11 students are doing a unit on Collaborative Design next semester.  I want them to create a range of something (clothing?, toys?, soft furnishings? etc.) for a charity as the practical part of this study, but am at a bit of a loss as to a charity for them to sew for. I'd like it to be something local if possible (thought about making toys to go to kids in local hospital, but thought there may be some issues with that), but have thought about getting them to make some clothing for underprivilidged kids overseas as well.

Does anyone have any ideas of charities to approach, or know of charities that have crafty programs already set up that we could just tap into?  Can anyone recommend a charity program that they have had a good experience with?  I'd like to go to the kids with a few different ideas so they can pick which one they can focus on.

Cheers guys!

I'm not local so I have no idea about specifics, but surely there are lots of people affected by the bushfires that could do with some craftiness.  I expect there would be plenty of scope for variety.

So much to make, so little time!
