Project Underpants - Pledges Tally

Cool prizes you can win this week...
To inspire your undie pledges this week, we have three fabulous prizes to add to the prize pool. Each pair of underpants you donate gets you one entry into the draw. New prizes will be released each week throughout September {winners drawn on 1 October, 2010}, plus the person or group who donates the most pairs will win a $150 shopping spree from our friends at Whimsy Child. For full campaign details, please click here.

The Little Humbugs Art Print

This original vintage inspired print is the creative work of Melbourne based artist, Louise from The Little Humbugs. Louise draws her designs in pencil, and then colours them digitally. The finished product is printed using high quality archival paper and claria inks and is then matted, ready for framing.  This little cutie looks like she’s taking master duck for a splash in some puddles!

Handmade Soft Toys by Rosie's Bears and Bitty Critters
Next up we have Billy in his y-fronts and Bella in her frilly knickers. This delightful pair are hand crocheted by Rosie from Rosie’s Bears and Bitty Critters. Each one is made from acrylic yarn and stands approx. 25cm tall. I don’t know what it is about y-fronts, but they always make me giggle!

Handmade Doll by Mon Petit Poppet

Our final prize today is from the crafty studio of Steph from Mon Petit Poppet. Sporting a red and white polka dot bikini, this handmade dolly is off on vacation to the beaches of St. Tropez. She’s looking for a stylish fashionista to take along with her… cocktails at sunset anyone?

Stay tuned next week for another round of prizes! In the mean time….

Project Underpants... Helping Aussie Kids!

Hello friends! This month I’m very excited and honoured to be collaborating with Despina from Backpacks 4 Aussie Kids on the Project Underpants campaign. Backpacks 4 Aussie Kids provides much needed essential & personal items to children in the foster care system. Our goal is to collect 500 pairs of brand new knickers to donate to the cause, and we need your help!

Project Underpants Campaign + Competition

What we’re asking you to do is to pledge a few pairs of undies during September towards our 500 pair total. The undies will go into care packages created by Backpacks 4 Aussie Kids, to be given to children going into care. Underpants should be brand new, in sizes 3 and up and either for boys or girls {or both}.

Win a $150 shopping spree!

In order to encourage you to make a pledge, we have a series of prizes on offer that have been donated by our fabulous friends and sponsors. There will be three new prizes released each week during September {starting on 9 Sept}, so check back each Thursday to see what’s up for grabs!

To be eligible for the prize draw, your undie donation must arrive at the Backpacks 4 Aussie Kids office on or before 30 September, 2010. For each pair of undies that you pledge/donate you will get one entry into the major prize draw. Plus, the person or group who donates the most pairs of undies will win a $150 shopping spree from our friends at Whimsy Child. Hooray!
