An afternoon in May can change everything

Last Saturday (May 4) afternoon we held our 4th Under a Tree Clothing Exchange.
We transformed New Farm State School hall into a place of tea, conversation, live music and clothes swapping. Women came together unbeknownst to each other that they all share one very important focus, "making a difference". Together, A Pot of Tea Under a Tree with all the volunteers, attendee's and sponsors of this event made a difference in the lives of 6 more little Cambodian girls sold into sex slavery. Another 6 girls learning to laugh and play again.

Under a Tree Clothing Exchange - Post Card Love

This Easter keep your eyes open for our signature post cards.
We are delighted to be preparing for May 4th Under a Tree Clothing Exchange.

So, go through your wardrobe, while sipping your favourite tea and think about an afternoon of clothes swapping and life saving. You may find some treasures there that are ready for a new life. 
Swap the types of things you would like to find! 
You may have clothing and accessories (hats, scarves, belts and shoes) which are in good condition and likely to be valued by others. 

So far we've recused the lives of 16 little Cambodian girls from sexual slavery.
Let's double it this year!

Please email me at info@underatree.com.au for some post cards to hand out to your friends and share the Under a Tree Clothing Exchange love.

There's a baby in there.......

Can you believe I knew I was pregnant within days of conception? The lead up to 6 weeks pregnant was an annoying waiting game with strange symptoms. It was a Friday morning that I took the life changing home pregnancy test that confirmed all that I'd hoped for, 
We are Pregnant!

My first trimester was beautiful, emotional and extremely exhausting! Vomiting here, heart palpitations there, with constant nausea while my body housed the formation of a human being.  

All of this aside, I'm thrilled to take on the biggest challenge of my life, to be a Mummy!
I'm going to be bold and say this. I will fail as a mother in my own strength. I'm too selfish, I'm impatient and I can give those looks that apparently could kill. So here, I am saying it. I will only be the mother that my baby needs by the Grace of God. And just to make that perfectly clear, His Grace is my Heavenly Fathers ability in me. His Love, His words, His wisdom, His protection for me and my baby!

This blog is not only an announcement, it's also a confession to my unborn child. I promise you, my little one, you will know love that never fails!

16 weeks pregnant!
