Handmade to Help
After a couple of weeks away, I am revitalised and have lots of new ideas .... I follow the Comfort Doll Project blog and was happy to see an Australian Connection in the most recent post. Here are some dolls donated by Australian dollmaker, Delys Brady . My Rotary club awhile ago made some little comfort dolls for our local women's refuges, but it is probably time again to restock. I also thought perhaps the Hello Dollies group might like to become involved and contribute to the Comfort Doll Project in Australia.
We already make sure that Centacare are provided with beautiful dolls and toys to be distributed at Christmas, and I am not suggesting that this should be abandoned at all. However, I am sure we all have a few small dolls that could also be donated as comfort dolls. I'll talk about it some more at the October meeting, but in the meantime, please consider this idea while I make contact with the Australian Coordinator of the Comfort Doll Project for more information.
