Congratulations to all who took part and to the wonderful people at Renew Hope Haiti for all their hard work in making this possible.
The Renew Hope Haiti Spring Dolly Donation Drive ended up with 459 dolls and meant they could be distributed to two separate schools, The Spirit of Truth Schools in Guibert Haiti and Marotiere Haiti.
“The children were so happy when they received their dolls!
One of the best stories was from Marotiere. We had distributed dolls in the morning at this school and spent the rest of the day and early evening painting the school and church.
When we were heading home at the end of the day and about a mile from the school
- we saw children at the side of the road jumping and waving at us.
It wasn’t until we were closer that we realized they were waving their dolls and shouting "Merci" (Thank you). They must have been playing with their dolls all day.
It was so heart-warming and their was not a dry eye in the car.
We want to thank Dolly Donations and all the volunteers who took time to sew for these children....we are truly grateful"
