Such Fear for People in Afghanistan

As I’m putting together this Parent Gift together for our newest Cameroon family….my heart can’t help but cry for all of the Afghani families that are in extreme danger right now. So many of these Afghani family men and women put their lives in danger as they were helping out U.S. forces in many capacities during all of these war years. And now they and their families are in extreme danger for helping the U.S….realistically many Afghani people are in danger for who knows what reason by the Taliban.

I looked back at my records and see that we have given our Doll/Teddy Bear/&Teen Totes to 43 children from Afghanistan in the past. I was hoping that looking at these records…I would feel a boost to my tearful feelings because we have already helped so many children that have already arrived safely in the United States. I didn’t help. 43 is just a drop in the bucket in comparison to how many people (women and children in danger are being repeatedly aired on the news) are in danger in Afghanistan right now.

I AM consoled by the fact that I am doing this charity work to help refugee children that arrive to the United States. And I will be especially comforted once many of these endangered families start to arrive in the United States….or any other safe country. I have to keep my eye on this “prize”. “prize”=safety of Afghani people.

Please lift up and keep the people from Afghanistan in your thoughts and prayers as this unfolds. There is so much fear in that country right now.

Below is a photo of some of the Afghani children that we have given our totes to. These children are in the U.S. safe and will have a bright future.

PLEASE HELP our 501(c)3 Nonprofit purchase these American Girl Dolls for our Newly Arriving Refugee Girls

PLEASE HELP: “Don’t Cry…I’m Here” (DCIH) is a member of Good360 which is an organization that offers overstock goods at very discounted prices to 501(c)3 Nonprofits. They just offered these American Girl Dolls today. Good360’s price is $62.50 for a case of 4 of these American Girl Dolls. Not one doll for $62.50….but 4 dolls for $62.50. As a Nonprofit we can get a total of 8 cases with 4 doll in each case for $500.00. That is only $15.62 per American Girl doll. And there is NO shipping charge on these. They are the most wonderful American Girl dolls and this is an amazing price.

Since Good 360 only sells to Nonprofits….only I can purchase these dolls….the general population can not. I was wondering if you would like to contribute to helping me purchase 8 cases of these dolls. Good360 is a very very reliable nonprofit. I have ordered lots of items, including American Girl Dolls, for DCIH from them in the past. Their prices, quality and shipping time are excellent.
