NEW Dolly Donations Drive: Please Help The Children of Brazil!

Sunday, February 5, 2012


Have you seen the horror that is going on in Brazil?  It is terrible, families forced out of their homes by the Police, no warning .....   6000 people left homeless, 2000 children displaced ....

"They didn't even let us breathe," one weeping woman told Globo TV as she fled the area carrying a young girl. "They have thrown our whole lives away."

"The operation to clear the Pinheirinho shanty town in São José dos Campos .... 50 miles from São Paulo, began at around 6am .....without warning, black-clad troops swept into the area carrying metal shields and pump-action shotguns. ...... Television pictures showed terrified mothers fleeing the slum clutching their babies."  The Guardian (UK News Paper)


I am heartbroken to read the reports .... but thankful as the wonderful Andréa in Brazil has contacted me and we are organizing a Doll Drive to help the children.


"so many children .. are dealing with a tough, very difficult moment in their lives; for their parents have been expelled from their homes on an unjust and very violent process , in one word traumatic, here in Brasil. Right now they are all poorly sheltered and much are very little, almost babies, hence the idea of comfort from a doll" Andréa

So please let everyone know a 
New Doll Drive will be up tomorrow!!
