You can send your completed softies to

Please post your softie/s to

Leonie Doran-Grigsby
160 South Road
Waipu 0582
New Zealand

Leonie is liaising with courier firms in NZ to have them distributed to those in need - hopefully they will be generous and distribute them free of charge! If you are after more ideas for softies, check out this link more patterns for you

Ive made some bird rattles and rocket ships, but hope to make some of those stripey bunnies you can see on the link. Too cute. Dont forget to send the softies with a little note of warmth and encouragement for the kids and their parents to read.
