Don't Cry...I'm Here

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.

A Birthday Gift to “Don’t Cry…I’m Here” for and from Sam Harvey

A MESSAGE FROM SAM HARVEY: For my birthday this year, I’m asking for donations to Don’t Cry, I’m Here. I’ve chosen this nonprofit because their mission means a lot to me, and I hope you’ll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me. Every little bit will help me reach my goal.Facebook pays all the processing fees for you, so 100% of your donation goes directly to the nonprofit.

I’m in the DCIH Workshop on this hot 99 degree June day. It’s nice and cool in here. Met up with this talking teddy bear as I was working and he said, “What’s with this crazy Minnesota weather? First it’s 15 below zero…then it’s 100 above zero. Couldn’t you have landed me in a more temperate climate!!”

Don’t Cry…I’m Here Now Uses GIVEBACKBOX


NEWS: This is some fantastic news for all of you that have been paying so much for shipping your boxes to us. DCIH has been approved by the GIVEBACKBOX program. This will allow you to send any box (re-used/recycled) up to 70 pounds filled with items for DCIH for $15.00. The GIVEBACKBOX lists the items we need and will accept. If you send anything other than what’s on the list, make sure to approve it with me. This is a program to reduce waste, help recycle used boxes in order to keep our earth green….and at the same time it helps charities receive the things that they need for their charity. Just pull off the old label, fill the box with items that DCIH needs, and relabel it with your printed GIVEBACKBOX label and bring it to USPS or UPS.

This program has been around a long time and is supported by Amazon and many other large companies, but it is new to DCIH. So, as we begin to use this, there may be some questions. I will do my best to help navigate our charity through any questions if we come upon them.

“Don’t Cry…I’m Here” Is In Need of Your Help

With our new administration in the United States, President Biden has signed and Executive Order to rescind Trumps Muslim Ban. This will allow many, many more refugee families into the United States. Because of this, our charity, “Don’t Cry…I’m Here” will be helping many, many more children by providing each newly arriving refugee child with a beautiful Tote Bag of goodies to WELCOME them. We will need to GROW in size to meet the needs of these newly arriving refugee children who come to the United States with very little. They have gone through so much trauma, and we welcome each child with an ethnically dressed teddy bear or doll, plus much more, to help them adjust to their new life in the United States.

We need new 16 and 18 inch dolls, new 24 inch teddy bears, Build-A-Bears, new clothes, new toys and much more to help get the children set up in their new homes.

In addition, we need monetary donations to keep our work going. If you would like to help out monetarily, click on the “DONATE” button above.

Girls From Afghanistan Receive “Don’t Cry…I’m Here” Doll Totes

Photo from Arrive Ministries - 5 girls from a family of 10 that arrived from Afghanistan 0 2-28-20

A TREAT FOR YOU: I received this photo from Laura Johnson who is our connect person at Arrive Ministries. This is a photo of some of the children from an Afghan family of 10 that Arrive Ministries helped to resettle here in the United States. We provided totes for 8 children from this family.

Just look at the looks on their faces. Isn’t this an adorable family from Afghanistan that is now safe here in the United States.

***I want to point something out. Look at the head scarves that 2 of these Afghan girls are wearing. They are very similar to the head scarves that are on our Afghan dolls. Good work in this design, Dawn Chase!
