Fukudamachi Kindergarten Project - small beginnings, touching hearts worldwide

This week things have really kicked into action. We received our first donation of knitted slippers from Yossarian - she's a fab friend and organiser of Kapiti International Women's Group - I'll update later on the fundraiser the group worked on for Japan once the Fukudamachi Project winds down.

Bloggers have been posting the message for us. Stitchbird included our project on her blog.

Two other bloggers from the USA, Amber (This sew called life) and Betsy (Heavens to Betsy) have posted it on their blogs.

Amber has readied our first international donation, all the way from Hawaii. What a talented and generous woman! I can't wait to send her a photo of us packing her goodies for Japan!
Amber and her gorgeous daughter with their fabulous creations.
Last week my support/project co-ordination team were frantic seeking sponsorship for shipping to Japan - we think we have it (big thanks to Jo and Heather) and all shall be confirmed in the next day or so... stay tuned.
