M'boro woman combines with crafty folk to raise funds
A MARYBOROUGH-based web business is teaming up with members of Australia's handicrafts community aiming to raise $50,000 through an online charity auction.
Lana Schijvens' business, Oh Baby - which creates beautiful handmade hair accessories - will be participating in Collaborate for a Cause.
Lana has teamed up with Cassie from Three Kittens & Hanny from Two Little Tomatoes to create a Little Red Riding Hood-themed package.
Together, they hope to raise funds for Red Cross Australia.
The event has attracted the support of hundreds of businesses that have come together to donate their time, skills and products to raise money for charity.
Each business donates handmade wares which will go up for auction starting Friday, July 26.
Members of the public will be able to bid on the auction via the Collaborate for a Cause Facebook page simply by commenting under a photograph of their favourite item.
The beneficiary will receive 100% of the winning bid value.
