We delivered a mixture of 6 Doll and Bear Tote Bags to Arrive Ministries today. Arrive Ministries resettlement organization does so much for our newly arriving refugee families. They are our refugees first connection when they arrive in Minneapolis. They meet the refugee families at the airport, set up housing for the families, and make sure that their housing has the basic necessities for them to start their new lives. And they are OUR (Don’t Cry…I’m Here) connection for getting our Totes to these new families. The 6 Totes that we delivered today will be in the hands of 2 boys (twins) and 4 girls (including our teen girl)….all from the same family very, very soon!! In fact, the guy in these photos loaded them up in his car before we left Arrive Ministries and was going to deliver them today. Thank you everyone for your help in making this happen.
Another special treat for you guys…..Arrive Ministries shared this post on their Facebook Page about our delivery today. I thought you might like to see it.

These totes will be in the hands of 7 boys and girls very very soon!! These are all spoken for.
NEWS!!! Yesterday we received a very generous donation in the form of a gift card from our Edina, MN Target store to be used to purchase dolls and doll related items for our Doll Gift Tote Bags. Target has really gotten on-board with our charity and we have been supported by several of their stores in our area. A HUGE Thank You to Target!!
