1000 Hearts is a kindness project that started in 2016 by a local Tasmanian lady called Sarah, with the aim to spread some love and compassion 🥰
Inspired and driven by her work in the non-profit sector, Sarah felt a need to do something that offered love in an all-inclusive way with no cost, no conditions and no limits. The 1000 Hearts project is based around small pocket hearts which are handmade from wool felt and stitched with love and good intentions. These hearts are then offered to people as a symbol of compassion, care and kindness.
Thousands of hearts have been donated to people struggling with a wide variety of challenges like loneliness, mental illness, sickness and bereavement.
Now in this time of increased social isolation, we find the power to connect people is more relevant than ever.
There are loads of ways you can get involved, whether you can sew or not!
You can give away one heart or hundreds. You don’t have to be crafty or saintly or anything other than what you are. All you need is a willingness to be kind to yourself, to connect with others and to offer love where it is needed (hint; it’s needed everywhere).
How to get involved:
Sew some felt hearts and send them to people you think might need a positive boost! Think doctors, nurses, teachers, grandmas, cousins, shop keepers - the list goes on!
Anyone can contact 1000 Hearts to receive a small pack of free pocket hearts; one to keep and a few to give away.

A message for Year 12 #HSC students from the Federal Minister for Education The Hon Dan Tehan MP📝
The work you will do in Year 12 this year is incredibly important and your results will be as valuable as any previous year.
COVID-19 will take a lot from our nation but it won’t take all your hard work over your years of education.
All education ministers met today through Education Council and we agreed that:
• Year 12 students will get a leaving certificate for 2020.
• There will be no Year 13.
• There will be no mass repeating of Year 12.
We want Year 12 students to finish their education and next year go to university, undertake vocational training or enter the workforce.
Each state and territory is responsible for their government schools and is also responsible for awarding senior secondary certificates in their jurisdiction.
It was agreed that every state and territory would follow national principles to support local decisions.
