this give away has come about as a result of a few things - 1. the recent discovery of 'courage dolls' (a doll made specifically to provide courage, especially during medical treatment) 2. the recent heartbreak of children who are now without a parent this Christmas 3. our love of leaving love notes.
our family decided to make 2 girl dolls and 2 boy dolls (not pictured) to give away to four NZ kids who are in need of some courage or comfort this Christmas. kids who may be undergoing intensive medical treatment, or whose parents have recently separated, or who have been bereaved of a parent, or similar.
in our family we love giving nighttime notes, so i have included pockets especially for messages (or prayers) of love, truth and hope to encourage young hearts.
and to spread the courage|comfort further, a wonderfully generous friend has offered to donate 4 of her kitties (with note pockets!) also. so kind.
so, if you know a child whose spirit could use a little bolstering this Christmas, please email me at the address above before the 3rd December and (if appropriate) our family will select eight recipients together.
