Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea

May is the fundraising month in Australia for the Cancer Foundation. This year DNo 1 decided she would have a morning tea to raise some money. She ended up raising over $500 which was a great effort. She raided my cupboards for anything red and white (her home has red accents) and started making plans.

We had the most lovely morning. Please excuse the blurry photos but I think there were 100 small children there (not really!) and it was quite hard to get some photos. This fundraising event is very dear to my heart as I lost my father from cancer 16 years ago. Sadly this terrible disease seems to touch us all.

Congratulations on the money raised to help fight that horrible disease. The table looks very pretty and the desserts look yummy. Good job! I want to thank you for coming to my party so often. I enjoyed meeting lots of new friends that way. Please come by to visit because I am still blogging, just need some extra time to work on some new opportunities. I will continue to visit all my blogger buddies! Thanks again----------Shannon

Wow, Suzy! You have a LOT of red & white!!!!!!! That was definitely good news for your daughter, I'm sure! She did a wonderful job, and all the sweets look delicious! SO glad to hear that she raised so much money for the cause!!! Cancer is such an ugly, ugly disease and - like you said - it has touched each and every one of us at some time in our lives. Hey...I mentioned you in the post I just did for the 4th of July celebrations here in the States. You're in either the 1st or 2nd paragraph. I have become very sensitive to the fact that your seasons are the flip of ours! :-)

What a great idea for fund raising. I lost my mother to cancer when I was a teenager. My daughter and I are participating in a cancer walk in October. We are starting to run out of ideas for fund raising. Your idea may give me a spark.
