New Active Doll Drive: Softies for Christchurch, New Zealand’s Earth Quake Victims

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

“Lets join our hands and our hearts and make a special softie (handmade soft toy) to be loved by a child who has been affected by the devastating earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand.”

Leonie from Kiwi at Heart is collecting softies and dolls for the children devastated by the recent earthquake in New Zealand.

She’s looking for sewn, knitted, crocheted toys for babies, toddlers, and children of any age.

If you’re interested in helping please pop over to her blog and leave a comment under her post with your e-mail. She’ll contact you with an address to send them to ASAP!

Find more information about this doll drive HERE

“The confirmed death toll from yesterday's devastating magnitude 6.3 quake stands at 75, with 300 reported missing…… But police expect the death toll to climb.”

My thoughts and prayers are with the people of New Zealand.

thank you so much for spreading the word. The response has been Amazing!! I am so excited and I imagine this will be a lovely surprise for those precious wee children who have been so traumatised by this tragic event.

Thank you so much for doing this. Our New Zealand children will be so thankful. Their little eyes have seen way more terror than they need too. :(

Hello! My organization "Dollies Making a Difference" sent 20 cloth dollies to a contact we made at the ChristChurch Salvation Army in Sydenham. We would love to send more dollies to NZ ...can you give me more details? Our website is "under construction" but once you give me your email I can send you our letter of introduction and some photos. We operate out of my dining room in LA !! xo CINDY SIMON
