Dolls for Peruvian children
From Heidi G: My daughters and I are making dolls for children in Peru. If at any time you find you have extra fabric (especially brown/tan) and extra hair yarn (especially brown, black and red/orange), we are looking for donations so that we can continue making dolls for kids who have none.
Waldorf dolls for healing Congo families
Recently some dollmaking volunteers travelled to the DRCongo, where ongoing civil war has claimed millions of lives and left families broken and fleeing, to share the healing power of making dolls with Congolese women. They returned to their homes in Rhode Island and are selling the dolls to raise money for Congo refugee work.
I'm back from DRCongo, safe and sound, and filled with new thoughts! The women managed to make 100 of the soft dolls which we are selling. People back here are very excited to buy these little dolls. Attached is a picture of the women on the last day.
To buy one of these dolls, please contact Betty Merner at email@example.com. You can also visit their blog and website Empower Congo Women, to find out more about this work. You can also donate directly at the web site. Empower Congo Women is a 501c)3 non-profit.
