These totes will be picked up from their office tomorrow, Saturday, and taken down to Austin, Minnesota to the families. They will be in the hands of the children for Christmas. This will be a very special Christmas for these children. Thanks everyone….for helping us welcome these children.
Look at all of those boxes….they are the boxes filled with our 16 totes.

INTRODUCTION TO OUR NEW “ETHIOPIAN DOLLS AND TEDDY BEARS”:
These are NEW to our family of Ethnic Dolls and Teddy Bears available for our refugee/asylum seeking children. They are for the children coming from Ethiopia to find safety in the United States.
What a treasure these photos are!! What a precious family. The photo with the sleepy children in it was taken the morning after they arrived in the United States. Our Buddy Bear is already in the arms of this sleepy boy. We can see in this photo….the toll that their LONG trip to safety takes on these families.
We received a Cash Grant from Walmart in the form of a check. This is BIG NEWS!! This is so exciting for Don’t Cry…I’m Here. It is a big step in the growth and development of our Charity. Thank you so so so much to Walmart!! They play a big role in the work of charities around the country!!
NEWS!!! Today we received a generous donation in the form of a gift card from our local Coon Rapids, MN Target store to be used to purchase dolls, bears, infant and teen related items for our Gift Tote Bags. This is part of Targets way of supporting local charities. I just HAD to take a picture of this gift card from this wonderful company donation. Hey everyone….we are going to make this project as big as we can….and reach as many little kids as we can!! Let’s work hard and make this happen!! A HUGE Thank You to Target!!
