Making a
social impact

Thinking of You Gift makes a positive social impact by sourcing and stocking handmade, socially responsible products that support communities and emerging artists (many who are marginalised) to gain meaningful work and live a fulfilling life.

The shop provides a platform for local artists – many living with disabilities – to sell and share their work and develop their own microbusinesses. It also supports 13 social enterprises from across Australia and overseas to positively impact their communities.

Everything is carefully considered right down to the packaging, using recycled newsprint from Earth Bound Creations and recycled bows from the One Billion Stars project to reduce our environmental footprint.

Can Can Cards

Can you make a difference just by buying some cards?
Yes you can! Can Can Cards help artists with a disability build their own microbusiness.

Winning an Access Arts Achievement Award in 2017 allowed Freya to establish an art collective known as The Ripple Effect. This initiative brought 7 artists with disabilities together to hold 3 exhibitions and to go onto establish the Can Can Card brand.

As an artist for Can Can Cards, Freya is developing her own microbusiness designing cards, investing in production and liaising with printers and stockists.

When you purchase Can Can Cards you support 7 artists to grow their microbusiness and 2 social enterprises – Thinking of You Gift and Words With Heart make real, positive change!

Support artists like Freya by buying a pack of Can Can Cards today.

Community Sewing Bee

Sew We Can events

Sew We Can is an annual event that draws together a community of enthusiastic sewers to give back through sewing.

Started in 2016, sewers assemble bunting letter pennants which are then individually screen printed by Freya to form Thinking of You Gift's signature customised bunting.

A day of happy chatter, beautiful bunting, clacking machines and new friends and old, the event brings the community together. It also provides an opportunity to share Freya's story and encourage other people who are marginalised to pursue their passion and live a life driven with purpose.
