Active Doll Drive: Help the Ethiopian Children of Domestic Violence in Israel

Monday, August 15, 2011

Domestic Violence is terrible wherever in the world it occurs. It’s often hushed up and victims become trapped in the situation out of fear.

There is a Domestic Violence Shelter in Tel Aviv, Israel that has requested some black dolls to help comfort the Ethiopian children of domestic violence housed there.

Rev Cheryl Wallace who is the founder of the non-profit charity ‘Trust His Heart’ will be traveling there in November and is desperate for help in collecting the dolls as she herself does not sew.

The shelter has not asked for money, just these dolls, so when she contacted me I knew we could help!

“(The mothers and children) could be put in grave danger by revealing the DV shelters I will be working with in Israel” Rev Cheryl Wallace said. So unfortunately that means we will not be seeing photos of the doll distribution. However please know that they are greatly appreciated!

50 – 100 Black/Brown skin toned dolls.

The dolls can be Knit, Crochet or Sewn.

The Doll Drive is:      Completed

31st October 2011

Thanks so much for everyone who took part in this drive,
Take care and Happy Sewing!

Sarah, my goal is to make and send Cheryl 10 little dollies! I'm very excited about this project. I have an Ethiopian granddaughter, so this is dear to my heart.
