Find the perfect gift this holiday season

28 Nov 2022

A lack of inspiration can quickly drain the joy from gift giving. Not to fear, Contact’s gift guide is here!

From the adventurers to the readers, we’ve got the special people in your life covered. Better yet, all pressies are supporting UQ alumni. 

Famin Makes

Give the gift of giving with a handmade hat by the generous Famin Ahmed (Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Law (Honours) ’19). The UQ alum founded Famin Makes between graduating and starting work as a full-time lawyer in 2019, and was motivated by her first-hand experience with the lack of funding for domestic-violence victims trying to access legal advice.

Three years later, Famin has raised more than $55,000 by sewing after hours and donating all proceeds to the Women’s Legal Service Queensland to help victims of domestic violence.

“Buying a hat means you have a unique, handmade gift, while helping women and children to escape domestic violence at the same time.” - Famin Ahmed.

A meaningful pressie and a cause well worth your support. Visit the @FaminMakes Instagram to find your gift.
