Will You Help?

I can see so much good coming from National Doll Day. Not just the celebration on the First Sunday in August, but throughout the entire year. This is my hope, my dream. But…

It takes a lot of work, planning, and support from everyone. I wish all would help with this endeavor. Those who have ever had their life touched by the unconditional love a doll brings – not just to self, but to the daughters and granddaughters, sisters, nieces, friend’s children, and to the unknown little girls we never get a chance to meet.

My heart breaks with the devastation in Joplin, Missouri. This was just one of the neighborhoods... now totally gone in a matter of minutes. So many people lost their lives. All lost everything they had.

So many tragedies such as fire, separation due to abuse, and other catastrophes across the United States and around the world, leave little arms empty. I ask myself, what can I do as one person?

My first thought is organizing a doll drive. I realize churches, communities, and retail stores are probably doing this already. But I don’t want to rely on others. I'd like to help out, too, on behalf of the National Doll Day.

Will you help?
