Announcement – 18th January 2020
Project KIN would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who has donated and volunteered with Project KIN over the last 4 years. It has been an incredible journey, where together we have impacted the lives of over 834 kids in need.
It is now time for Project KIN to move into a new season.
We are thrilled to announce that ‘Sewing for Charity Australia‘ has officially adopted the work of Project KIN and will continue to impact hundreds of more children as they continue to distribute the Project KIN resources.
You can continue to support the work of this project by getting involved at Sewing for Charity Australia. Visit their website for more information and to share your interest.
We will no longer be accepting donations, but we’d like to redirect you to Sewing for Charity Australia to continue to support the project financially.
If you’d like to volunteer your time and sew dolls or crochet or knit doll accessories, please get in touch with the charity by emailing
or you can join their Facebook volunteer community
‘Sewing for Charity Australia Volunteers’.
On behalf of Maryann and the team, thank you for your service, love and kindness.
We pray your time with Sewing for Charity Australia would be enjoyable and rewarding.
