Hello! I'm so happy to share our event! I had a little get-together to benefit my friends in Uganda. I really wanted to hold the doll-making event (rather than just a boutique) to make people more aware of the needs of these good people. Also, I thought doing the dolls would draw them in rather than just coming to buy jewelry.
AND, you can probably imagine the joy a child has when she receives something that is to be her very own. I always think of my own children, and how I would want them to have something they can love and have for their own.
We had such a wonderful time making the dolls, and sharing stories of the Ugandan people. I feel like people really want to get involved somehow, but they aren't sure what they can do to help. Activities like this help to open people's eyes to the needs in our world. Even a small doll can bring so much joy and hope to a child.
