In February 2010 the president, Stephanie Victor, of The Abundant Ground Foundation and I set in motion a dream, to provide each of their 181 orphaned children in Haiti with their very own doll.
With the help of every one of you, we not only made this happen, but we blew past our target and managed to collect 584 dolls! All the extra dolls are being handed out to the local children who have nothing to call their own.
After a long road filled with hold ups, customs problems, and general frustration in a country still reeling from January’s devastating earthquake, the amazing commitment and perseverance of those at The Abundant Ground Foundation has finally paid off and the dolls have reached the children. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Words cannot describe how happy I am. Thank you to everyone that has taken part in this Dolly Drive, and to those that are taking part in our current Dolly Drive!
You see dreams really can come true and your dolly counts!
