DUDUZA (comfort) DOLLS

As many of you know by my e-mails, last week I was watching Fox TV and they interviewed a woman who is very involved with CHABHA..Children Affected By HIVAIDS...There are thousands of parentless children in Rwanda and other African countries. These children have no change of clothes, no shoes, no toys. The group wanted to make a difference, they knitted dolls, counted 219, thought it was plenty, brought them over and were so overwhelmed by the response of the children. They loved, hugged and cried for these dolls but there was not enough to go around. The group returned to the states and is requesting...If you can knit, Please, follow these simple instructions and create this much needed "Lovey" in American, "Duduza" in African.
I have much donated yarns, you do not need a large amount but lots of different colors and textures to make them cheerful and fun. Here are two sites where you can see the dolls, retrieve the pattern and read for yourself the articles...www.chabha.org and also www.creativestitchonline.com/pattern
When we have collected a good sized box full, A Knitter's Garden will pay to ship the box to Vermont. I will also have a collection jar for monetary donations to send along as well. Please help me make a difference....J
