If you are like me, you probably have far more dolls around your home than there is room for. So where to find a home for all these dolls?
I have been exploring this conundrum. Of course, you can sell them if you like. Sometimes I do, but I'm just not a salesman. Every year several of my dolls go to my parents church for their annual Christmas bazaar (they even have started asking my Dad if I will have dolls for the bazarr!). Other possibilities exist in your community: your church, your local hospital, shelters for women and children, nursing homes for the elderly. There are also some online possibilities:
1. Comfort Cases. They put together supplies and a toy in a backpack for children entering the Foster Care system; for as they say, a garbage bag should NOT be a child's backpack. They recently held a special drive for immigrant children taken from their parents at the border and entering the Foster Care system, which is how I heard of this (from a good Facebook/Flickr friend), but they provide this caring for all children entering the program.
2. Cancer Kickin' Critters. In their own words ' Cancer Kickin' Critters is a nonprofit created by a kid to bring comfort to children in the hospital fighting cancer.' I love this, and will be donating to this group as well. They are on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for all you social media savvy types:

I would love to hear of any organizations that you donate to or would recommend. We can make the world a better place, one handmade doll at a time :-)
