The wonderful Lexi (AU) over at Pottymouthmama has set up a Doll and Softie Drop Off Drive for the Children of Japan, Hooray! Thank you for the anonyms person who told me about it!


This Dop Off Doll Drive is now closed! 
Thanks everyone! 
Go here to see some of the fab dolls and softies collected!


What can you do? Donate a handmade or new soft toy for donation to a child in Japan.
How? Stitch one with love, or choose one with your heart. All donated toys will be sent to Save the Children in Japan for distribution.
When? Now! Time is of the essence.

Where:  There are 4 locations:

So if you are interested, and live by any of the locations please drop of a doll or softie. Please remember these are DROP OFF locations. DO NOT send your dolls to these locations. I will let you know if I hear of any other doll drives for Japan in other countries ASAP.

Hi, this is a fantastic idea, I am a doll maker and am based in the Channel Islands. Jersey (Nr The UK.

I am thinking of setting up a drop off point here, and organizing a day event to get people together to make dolls to send them off. If I make and get donations where do I send the dolls to in Japan, would anyone have any info about what to do with the dolls once they were made? Many THanks Justine
