Be Uplifted Inc Breast Cancer Charity relies on generous donations of money, volunteers and Op Shop donations to provide much needed financial assistance and practical support to Brisbane locals enduring breast cancer.
Our Zillmere charity Op Shop is blessed to constantly receive quality donated items from the Brisbane community that in turn creates much needed funds for Be Uplifted Inc to carry out work in community.
Recently Be Uplifted received a very generous donation of beautiful fabrics from the Warhurst family. It was explained by Brett Nola’s son, that his Mother was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and that she was a very talented quilter. Be Uplifted quilting volunteers were so excited with this generous and quality donation! The fabrics will be used to create more handmade beautiful quilts for our breast cancer recipients and for sale in our charity Op Shop.
It was only when Peggy, President of Be Uplifted Inc was sorting the fabric donation, that an unfinished family quilting project was found folded within the fabrics donated. Be Uplifted did not feel it was their right to discard this project and felt drawn to contact the family and ask about it.
Our Be Uplifted quilting volunteers set to work to finish the quilting project with a desire to give back a beautiful finished family quilt to Nola’s family. The most special part of this quilt was quilting the family photos that had been copied onto fabric squares. It showed generations of the family and was fast becoming a handmade quilt of love and family memories.
Peggy, President of Be Uplifted Inc hand delivered Nola’s completed memory quilt to the family home in Narangba. For Be Uplifted Inc Charity, it completed a circle of giving that made everyone involved feel special and appreciated. We understand that Nola received her completed memory quilt on Mother’s Day.
Our motto is “people not research.” There are wonderful charities in Australia connected to breast cancer research or patient care.
Our focus is on local Brisbane people on their breast cancer journey and providing immediate practical and financial support to these individuals and their families. All donations go directly to support local Brisbane people on a breast cancer journey.
Be Uplifted Inc is a registered charity that provides practical support and financial assistance for real life costs encountered by breast cancer patients and survivors in our local Brisbane community.
