Babies in Beanies - Voting has begun!

Well it's that time again - the voting is ON and we need your vote!!

Babies in Beanies evolved from a passion of Leonie of Snowgum Studio, and me, to capture the real essence of winter in Canberra. Rugged up kiddies, with beanies, mittens and scarves was what we thought of. We wanted to also support a local cause. The photographic competition to raise money for the Newborn Intensive Care Foundation started in 2009. We raised $2800 from entrant fees and raffles last year that went towards funds for the humidicrib for the Canberra Hospital.

The 2010 competition has just begun. We are aiming for $6500 in fundraising this year for a new piece of equipment for the neo-natal unit in the Canberra Hospital.

With 5 weeks of voting, and over 100 babies to vote for, it's set to be a tough competition. I'm glad I'm not voting!

Be sure to visit MissChief Maker website and Snowgum Studio blog to vote for the cutest Canberra baby in a beanie. You can vote once on each site. The two highest votes from each site go into the finalists of 16 babies.

It's tooooooo cute......
