Good evening everybody!
So, I have been talking about this charity/organization a lot the last few days on my Facebook page, and I thought I would share it with the few followers I have right now, and keep the info posted here for future followers, just in case you missed it!
Dollhouses For Kids Battling Cancer is an incredible charity I just found out about. The woman in charge of this, a lovely lady named Ann, finds or buys dollhouses and all the things needed to furnish them and donates them to her local cancer hospitals and doctors. She prefers to have the hospital and doctor staff give out the dollhouses, instead of herself, that way it helps the kids feel more comfortable and begin to like their doctors more. When I came across this page, my first reaction was sheer happiness! I know how happy my house and things makes me and so, to give that gift to a child who really needs their minds taken off things, was just genius! It made me so excited and want to give give GIVE immediately! I shared the page on mine too and started asking all my mini buddies to help out if possible.
I spoke with Ann, in emails and found out a few helpful things....The most important thing being nothing is turned down as a donation. Dollhouses, furniture, food, wallpapers, flooring, roof tiles, practically anything for dollhouses. Money is always welcome too.
When it comes to worrying about small parts as a choking hazard to little kids, she explained that since it is the doctors and medical staff giving out the items, they would definitely know who to give what to in terms of safety. The ages vary and range from very little to teenagers.
I have decided that all through the year at different times, I will be sending random packages of dollhouse things to this cause. Cancer doesnt take time off and neither does this cause.
I hope to see a lot of you sending items to this cause too. Even if youre not an artist or flush with dollhouse minis, there is always a way to help. One way is to get this page out there! Share this blog post with friends and family, like the page on Facebook, ask people you know to donate, keep an eye out for dollhouses and items being thrown or given away, or even just a simple donation of a few dollars to help her with furnishing and finishing the dollhouses. For more information, please contact Ann at the page linked above.
Thank you much and remember to be grateful for what you have and the problems you dont. <3
