My Fabulous Friend & A Very Worthy Cause

A couple of months ago my good friend, Meg, told me that she was planning on taking part in this year's World's Greatest Shave & I was blown away at her generosity. To lose your locks in support of all those who don't have the choice is an awe inspiring thing & I'm so glad I was along for the ride.


Knowing I couldn't support Meg in any huge financial way I did the only thing I could think to do, I put the call out on TSL asking if anyone would be kind enough to donate items to be auctioned off. The response was overwhelming & I set about organising the first TSL Charity Auction. 

The auction ran on our Facebook Fan Page, The Sewing Library Noticeboard beginning March 15th with a total of 139 donations in total WOW!!!!!! When bidding came to a close 48 hours later we had raised a total of $3,700 including some additional financal donations by some very generous TSL members. To see the donating businesses please see the photo album here.
I'd also love to take this opportunity to thank Jo & Shelley for their help during the auction, if it wasn't for my Admin Girls helping out, the auction wouldn't have been as successful as it was I'm sure of that.
Going, going, gone!
On April 1st I was proud to attend Meg's Shave Day here in Rockhampton & present her with a cheesy giant novelty check on behalf of all the TSL members. I was so very proud of my not so little group right in that moment & I think the smile in these photos says it all.

In total Meg & her team, Goldilocks & The Papa Bears, will come close to reaching over $9,000, which is a big cry from their original goal of $5,000! I would like to congratulate Meg & her team on such a fantastic effort, they have helped raise funds for vital blood cancer research with all their hard & brave work!

If you would like to sponsor Meg & her team you can until April 14th, please head to her sponsorship page & make your donation here


  1. Oh wow! Meg looks gorgeous! Congratulations to you both for your amazing efforts.

  2. I was amazed with Meg’s courage to participate in this cause! But it is a worthy cause, so kudos to her! Her mane would soon grow back to its former glory, but being able to commit yourself and give your support to charity only happens once in a while. Cheers!
