Join us, together with Sam & Olga of Thread and Maple and Tracie & Jodi of the Grocery Girls to raise funds for life-saving breast cancer research.
Here's what we've got going:
It’s hard to find a member of this tight-knit community who hasn’t been impacted by breast cancer, be it personally or through a family member or friend.
Let's unite to show support for this important cause.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is Australia’s leading not-for-profit organization funding world-class breast cancer research towards the vision of Zero Deaths from breast cancer. We are proud to be a corporate fundraiser.
Breast Cancer Canada provides funding for researchers in cancer centers, universities and laboratories across the country. It receives no government funding, all the research is driven through the generosity of donors.
Tassie Boobs for Breast Cancer rallies Aussie knitters and crocheters to hand-make natural breast prosthetics for cancer survivors who've undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy.
Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prostheses for women who have had breast cancer and undergone mastectomy or lumpectomy. Volunteer knitters provide these free to breast cancer survivors.
We will be drawing three lucky daily prize winners from Sunday 22nd October to Friday 27th October, at random from the prior day's donation list.

How do I enter the online fundraisers?
Every $5+ donation to our National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) online fundraiser page between 21st - 28th October counts as one entry into the following day's raffle prize draw. We will select one daily winner from all of the previous day's donations. All donors who contribute throughout the week are entered into the Australian grand prize drawings. You can also enter the North American raffles by donating via the Knit for the Girls Breast Cancer Canada fundraiser page.
Where & when can I buy the 'Knit for the Girls' bundles?
'Knit for the Girls' bundles will go on sale in our shop here at 12noon AEDT, Saturday 28th October. They will be priced at $218 AUD, with $30 from the sale of every bundle being donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
