It was wonderful to here from Monica again regarding the Doll Drive to Haiti, not only have they collected 100 dolls but these 8 little beauties were made by two teenagers! Hooray!
"They were made with love by Megan (16) & Shannon (13) from Pennsylvania. Their mother encouraged them to sew for charity this summer, & this is what they created--very cute." Monica
I think it's ever so important to teach our children to sew. We only had 2 years of it at school when I was a child .. and now they rarely teach it at all in school.
Congrats Megan & Shannon! They are beautiful!
And then Monica told me .... something amazing happened!
Rebecca (USA) who knew about Dolly Donations saw 2 large boxes of dolls at an Estate auction. (The owners had been Missionaries in Africa for decades.)
And she sent all 363 handmade dolls to the Haiti Doll Drive!!!
You are an absolute star Rebecca!!
You can click on the photo to make it larger ... and you'll see all the detail, the clothes and sweet faces, clearly a lot of care, effort and love had gone into making them ..... These beautiful handmade dollies could have so easily have gone to waist in our throw away society! I am so pleased and grateful that you found them and thought of us!!!
They will now be loved for years to come, the special companion to a little one in need in Haiti.
So the grand total so far is ..... 463 dolls! Hooray!!
