Okies. So I have an enormous suitcase and two big plastic bins full of nappies sitting in my room and nowhere for them to go! I have approached my wellchild provider liason officer and she was keen but haven't heard from her since so I need to get some decent brochures as I could send them to midwives etc. I would like to register as a charitable organisation but simple don't have the cash and I'm not sure where else to go with this. I'm open to all kinds of suggestion and inspiration.

If you come up with a logo, Dh can make up a bunch of brochures - he does all types of print advertising.
ETA He can do the ads as well.

Hey hun I'd like to help out too.
I'm not much good on the art side but would like to help somehow... hmmm... why dont you look at a freewebs or similar website for te awhina and business cards as an option? with a gmail or hotmail acc specifically for it? Can you do regular posts in the charity section or wahm section?

How much $$ for registering? would be happy to make something to auction off for te awhina...

Wow, I've been trying to play on my draw program and I'm terrible!

You are so lovely Karmiec-you melt me with all your lovely offers. IT was about $80 last time I checked.

I spoke to an accountant a while back about registered charities, with a view to getting the ball rolling, so we could apply for postage grants etc. Basically she said that for all the paperwork and fees, for a group of our size it's not worth it. She said that you might be able to get an accountant to do the pro bono though. You have to have a board of directors etc. There is an info site somewhere.

Chantelle, do you have some sort of direction for the logo? I know the last time we tried we didn't quite get it right. What kind of theme, imagery, colours?

Just my idea but I think a neat logo would be a small baby in a cloth nap held by two larger hands... hard to explain aye, but baby isn't lying down face outward like in the classic baby photo's but more upright kind of and more bottom that legs :smt017 there is a reason I don't do art :lol:

Just received MsE's logo which is really groovy. I'm getting my SIL to do some stuff for me too- I forgot I have a professional illustrator /artist at my beck and call. Lol

Have been getting some action on the Te Awhina front :wink:

-MY bestie who works for a law firm just scored me a lawyer who will work pro bono setting up the trust etc. Woop woop.

Have had lots of awesome pics and logos from fabbo TNNers which I have forwarded to my SIL Sarah Davis (anyone seen the childrens book Mending Lucille-she does the illustrating and is up for an award for it.) and she is going to help me with the logo. I'm also planning to get her to help me with the brochure but she doesn't know that yet :P .

Thanks so much guys.
