It's near the end of the financial year and we have accumulated quite a lot of samples, overruns and extra quilts, many in export sizes, that are just taking up our warehouse space.
Its winter now and rather than leaving them in stock or throwing them out, we thought, hey, isn't it a better idea to rework them into first quality quilts in Australian sizes and give them to somebody who really needs them.
We thought that this was a great idea, so today we contacted the Fr Bob MacGauire Foundation to find out if they were interested in our program. They were delighted.
So, it was decided that on 30th June, this week, we're having a "Father Bob Charity Day".
We are donating a day's production to make wool quilts and pillows which we will give to the Father Bob Maguire Foundation. These quilts and pillows will be given to needy people in Melbourne, who surely deserve a warm night's sleep at least.
The Foundation supports many people in our community through a range of programs and we are very proud to 'give back' and support Father Bob.

As part of our giving back philosophy, we are excited to announce that Kelly & Windsor Australia and the Alpaca Bedding Company has recently partnered with The Lung Foundation of Australia in a cause related marketing program.
Our goal is to contribute to a very worthy cause by donating to their resreach programs.
First launched in 2006, our alpaca underblankets have been very popular but unfortunately in 2015 we encountered some technical manufacturing problems that we just couldn't resolve and we reluctantly had to discontinue their production.
Today we are advising that they are coming back in winter 2021.
Small and family businesses are benefiting from a significant boost in consumer sentitment (in the covid pandemic) with new research revealing 93% of Aussie's prefer to buy products made in Australia.
If it's made in Australia and it is a quality product, why wouldn't you buy it?
