We have had a request for trauma teddies from StandBy 24 hr Response Service. This is a community-based suicide post-vention program that provides a coordinated response of support and assistance for people who have been bereaved through suicide.
StandBy in Brisbane have a little shortfall in their trauma teddy numbers due to the large number of families they have been supporting since the beginning of the year. The teddies are an important resource for clients of all ages to assure them that someone cares and is thinking of them during this difficult time.
If you would like to provide a trauma teddy (or more than one) for StandBy they will need to be:
* handmade, knitted, crocheted or sewn with EMBROIDERED FACES (no safety or button eyes please)
*small to medium size (anywhere roughly between 20-35cm)
If you are in Brisbane, feel free to comment on this page or PM us through our Facebook page and I can organise for pickup of your teddy/teddies.
Interstate crafters can post your teddy/teddies to:
StandBy Teddy Project
13 Panorama St
Bray Park QLD 4500
..and we will make sure your teddies get to the organisation.
