courage|comfort dolls :: a gift

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.



  1. they are both gorgeous and I love the cat too. Fabulous idea.

  2. Bless you. You are so kind. Missing you guys. Cx

  3. I love this Dee. I love the use of creative endeavour to make the world happier xxx

  4. What a wonderful thing to do Dee. xx

  5. This is a fabulous idea! And I know one little girl who would love to receive (and deserves to receive) one of these!! x

  6. Thank you so so much for the doll that Grace received from you.
    She is absolutely beautiful and her red hair matches Grace's brothers so she isn't out of place in our family!
    We have named her Dee and although Grace is still unable to talk she had a very wide smile when we unwrapped your gift
    I pray that you and your family will have a peaceful Christmas.
    Tracy and Grace xx
