The last couple of weeks have been so busy…what with puppet workshop preparations, toy-making, book giving, finalising the details of our new crafty project for schools here in Algiers and meeting new families that need help things have been hectic ..and then made so much more difficult because of a bug that has circulated around my home that knocked us for six and left me literally wanting to hide beneath the bed-covers too weak to do anything else….fortunately though we are now well on the mend!
But never mind all that, what I really wanted to say was a huge, huge thank you to all of you lovely lot that have been sending in donations! Too many to add pictures of everything but here are just a few..
An amazing dinosaur and unicorn that have been handmade.
A fab collection of hats and lots of treats for the children! I can’t tell you how excited the kids get when they are given a pack of stickers, a few hair clips, a ball, or a packet of pencils-such small gifts but they always bring the biggest smiles!
And what girl doesn’t like a sparkly bracelet?!
And a few of the toys that have been arriving….isn’t the elephant just the cutest!
People keep asking when the cut off date is for our toy drive.Well, we are hoping to give out soft toys to as many children as we can for the whole of this year so you still have quite a few months left to make something marvelous or for the non crafters to buy something beautiful.
As always, thank you all so much for your support and for choosing to make a difference.
Have a wonderful weekend!
