A Beautiful Idea: Letters of Hope Attached to Each Dolly

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

The wonderful people at The Abundant Ground Foundation have told me about a beautiful idea. A teacher in Connecticut had her class write Letters of Hope to the children in Haiti so that each of the 181 Dolls we provide to the orphans will have a Letter of Hope written by a child attached to it.

It is such a beautiful idea, that I was thinking, if your children are making, or helping you make a Doll, why not see if they too would like to write a little letter to attach to your dolly. That way if we make more than the 181 (which I sincerely hope we do), local children will have letters of hope also.... just a thought ....

It warms my heart to think of how much love we will be bringing these children with our dolls.

Thank You Everyone, Happy Sewing!
