Daddy Dolls arrive


Hooray! Big Sis and L'il Sis received their Daddy Dolls today. Big Sis immediately took hers outside and climbed a tree. L'il Sis took hers with us to dinner (Big SIs's stayed in the car, but L'il Sis's literally went to dinner). These are much easier to hug than a picture!
If you are interested in donating toward providing these dolls to needy children, you can do so at http://daddydolls.com/donation.php . Recipients are chosen by military Chaplains based on need. Also, 100% of the funds donated will go toward the manufacture and delivery of these dolls to children of servicemembers who either cannot afford a doll or have lost a parent in the line of duty.

I have a teacher-friend whose hubby is in Iraq. How can you order these for your own children? I'm not sure she knows about them. What a great idea.

I put a link to the Daddy Dolls website on the sidebar. Good luck to your friend! One Source, in connection with Sesame Street and Wal-Mart has a neat little DVD for little ones about coping with deployment. You can request one at www.militaryonesource.com

Those are too cute. My daughter had a daddy pillow (huge body pillow with Daddy's face on it) when hubby was deployed. These would be much easier to carry around. lol!
