Bye, Girls!

On Thursday, a bundle of my Lillian and Ilsa dolls, including my little denim Lillian (sniff) went on their way to an orphanage in Iraq. Somehow, it didn't seem tactful to send Fred - what with his hyperencephaly and lack of arms.



Hopefully they will have the same effect as the blankets shared by Project Linus - providing both comfort and sense of having something of one's own - to kids who don't have a lot else going for them at the moment.
And speaking of Project Linus, the numbers from my chapter are in - 8,868 blankets were distributed by our group in 2009. Personally, I'm stunned!

Wonderful causes, the kids will be so happy with those cute dolls and that many blankets is awesome.

I still can't believe it was that many - I know sorting day each month is monstrous - and one day I did say 'there must be a thousand blankets here!' - I just had no idea the monthly average was that many!
