As we enter the Christmas and Chanukah weekend, we at Dollies Making A Difference give thanks to every single person who has supported our efforts to spread joy all over the world, through the simple gesture of handing a handmade Dollie or Teddy Bear to a child. We are grateful for our Dollie Ambassadors who travel the world near and far, sharing Dollies and Teddy Bears with children they serve in medical clinics, orphanages, hospitals, disaster relief centers, safe shelters, foster care centers and more. We are so appreciative of our “Dollie Ladies from Afar” who crochet and sew Dollie blankets for us, which we wrap around each Dollie…suddenly transforming a toy into a little person to care for, to nurture, to love. And to our many friends who, knowing the Dollies Making A Difference story, spread the word of the good work we are doing to those who may want to join in – THANK YOU * THANK YOU * THANK YOU!
In a time when there is so much turmoil and despair in a confusing and in many places dangerous world, we will continue to do what we can, no matter how small it may seem, to bring a smile to a child’s face, to warm someone’s heart and to give comfort to those who need it the most. We CAN make a difference!
“I will take time today to stop and give a gift to someone needy, smile at a stranger or help a small child. I will take the time to do at least one thing that I usually find myself too busy to do, and I will inwardly smile at myself, taking the time to experience the feelings of my own kindness.” – Ruth Fishel
