Lavender Moon helping wildlife victims of bushfires through sewing
For a massage business that promotes only cruelty free products, it was hardly a surprise when animal loving owner of Lavender Moon massage in Peregian Beach, Yvonne Jones leapt at the chance to give her morning up from massage and Reiki treatments and swap it for a sewing pattern and machine.
All in the name of animal welfare, the word went out that Noosa library needed sewers to help make animal pouches for all the orphaned & injured animals who have survived the ravages of the recent bushfires.
Working in conjunction with the A.R.F (Australian Rescue Freecycle – craft guild) the team of 7 spent the morning creating a snug & safe place of safety in the shape of these giant pouches.
No body could fail to be moved by the sheer magnitude and cost to both human life and the devastating cost to our beloved indigenous animal population that these bushfires still continue to ravage.
With animal sanctuaries, volunteers and wildlife hospitals across Queensland full to bursting with injured animals, we all need to do our bit to help keep such iconic Australian wildlife safe and protected as we can.
It isnt just about the money raised, everyone can help in so many ways like giving up free time to help or with the logistical side of things.
Yvonne Jones hadn’t sewed since she was at school but its amazing what a bit of tuition and a great group of like-minded people from many different backgrounds and ages can do when they put their minds to it.
The ARF have sewing instructions and patterns for every type of animal who needs a temporary home on the way to recovery, from Sugar Gliders through to Eastern Joey’s
