Comfort dolls for children battling cancer

Comfort dolls for children battling cancer

Hi, I'm hoping to raise money to purchase materials and equipment to make dolls and donate them to children undergoing cancer treatment

We did it!

On 16th Jun 2016 we successfully raised £20 with 2 supporters in 28 days

Hi, my name is Becca and I have recently started my own small home run business making a variety of children's soft toys, memory items and dolls. I am a mum of 2 and I work around my children sewing whenever I can. Sewing is my passion and the best bit about my job is seeing the children's faces when there toys arrive. I take great pleasure in looking at the pictures of the smiling faces the parents send me!

 

What am I raising money for?

My eldest son gas had 3 operations as he was born win a cleft lip and palate and on his most recent visit to hospital, we got chatting to a little girl that was sadly battling cancer. She talked openly to us about it and she told us all about how she had lovely hair before but how its all gone. This really touched me and I couldn't believe someone so little had to go through such an awful thing. I felt like I wanted to help but didn't know how to. I have recently come up with an idea to make dolls and donate them to various different hospitals around the UK and eventually worldwide! The dolls will be made bald and will come with a variety of different wigs with different hairstyles and colours and they will come with some removable outfits and shoes. I'm hoping that this will cheer the children up during there stay in hospital and it will give them something to take home to show how brave they've been! It could even help them explain to their friends the changes they are going through. The money will be used to buy materials, equipment and also postage costs to send the dollies out. Every tiny bit of money helps and I will be so appreciative of anyone that donates and I hope I can put a smile on these children's faces.
