Thank you to the Steven Walter Boutique Op Shop in Katoomba

There is this boutique opshop at 150 Bathurst street, Katoomba that has been a big help to one of our Dress A Girl Australia supporter Monika Osvald. It is the boutique op shop of the Steven Walter Children's Cancer Foundation which is a not-for-profit organisation that is supporting childhood cancer research.

The opshop's Manager Helen and all the volunteers are doing a very good job not only promoting their own charity work but also our Dress a girl around the world campaign. They help collect fabrics and give it to Monika to make into dresses to donate to Dress A Girl Australia. A couple of months back, Monika decided to make dresses that she could sell to help raise funds and the Boutique opshop allowed her to display her dresses (3 at a time) and a week ago she had her first sale. WooHoo!!
She wrote and said it is not that much but a good start and hope it will pick up in the future and then asked me what to do with the money. So I told her she can use it for postage or buy more materials to make into dresses. She said she had heaps of materials to use so she preferred to use the money to buy t-shirts, socks, undies for the children in need and so with any sale she will have in the future. 

Thank you Monika for sharing your big heart and generosity to the children in need and please extend my heartfelt thanks to Helen and all the volunteers in the Boutique Opshop for their great support too.

For those who love vintage finds and/or repurposing, please visit the Boutique opshop at 150 Bathurst street, Katoomba.
