Little Dolls for Little Dolls

Wish we could have found dolls that had darker hair and darker skin for the little girls in Cascalheira. These were the only ones available in the store. Nevertheless, the girls were happy to hold their own doll. A whole, complete new toy. Not in pieces. Not broken old toys. It was so sweet and special to watch each little girl hold her new doll. They are very gentle and loving and it shows in the handling of their dolls.

As always, thank you to all of you who donated. Please keep donations coming. Any amount is very welcomed.
Obrigado!

A note on picture #7. These are two sisters. The doll belongs to the little one, Simone, who is looking to her doll. She is not upset, although it looks that way. She is just making sure her doll is there. How cute is that?

I think this is just so sweet. Would you be interested in me organizing a homemade doll drive for these children?

Kelli, that would be wonderful. It would be amazing for them to know that dolls were made especially for them.
