XYZ Workshop recently printed this wonderful Angry Birds inspired piggy bank in support of a much worthy charity, the Very Special Kids Charity.
We are helping our good friend Nat raise funds for this very special charity, “The Very Special Kids” Piggy bank appeal.
Nat’s son, Archie was born with a rare genetic condition and was diagnosed with inoperable tumor when he was just five years old.Sadly for parents Carley and Nathanael Preston, Archie was unwell from the day he was born. But it was the second diagnosis a number of years later that further added to the family’s already challenging circumstances.
Cleo is Archie’s little sister and unlike most young girls, Cleo worries about her brother going to heaven. She is helping raise money for Very Special Kids in this Cleo’s CampaignThe Preston’s and many other families in similar difficult situations get much needed help from the Very Special Kids program, who lighten the load by providing access to respite care at their unique facility.
Please help support this program by giving a donation on the official Piggy Bank appeal website - http://www.vsk.org.au/piggybankappeal/cleos-campaign

- I forgot to turn supports on but it printed pretty well anyway. There is some fixing needed inside but the outside was ok. To speed the print on my Deltaprintr it was reduced to 75% but it could have been full size. It will be painted pink after being epoxied together. VSK is a very worthwhile organization!
HI @dendad, We are terribly sorry to hear of your tragic loss. We can't begin to imagine the pain of losing a loved one so young. We are very thankful to have organisations like VSK that help provide support to families in such difficult circumstances.
Thank you for sharing your story and showing your support.
Thank you for doing a moneybox and post about Very Special Kids.
We lost a Precious Grandson to Batten Disease and VSK have been wonderful in their support to him and his family. It is an organization I had never heard of before but one that gives a great free service to those in need, and they shine a light into an otherwise very dark time.
