Raising Awareness – Danielle's Doll Drive
It has been nearly a year since my cousins’ early departure from the physical world. She was a sweet and caring soul that left us too soon. I want to help raise awareness for suicide prevention in her name, so everything will be going to help fund the cause Danielle’s Doll Drive.
In remembrance of Danielle’s love for all things Barbie, Danielle’s Doll Drive was started by her parents to help collect new dolls, toys and monetary donations for hospitalized children. Danielle spent many nights in hospitals. Even as a young adult on the pediatric floor her eyes would light up when the “toy lady” came around. Something as simple as a stuffed animal would make her day.
In order to help raise awareness for suicide prevention and to help fund Danielle’s Doll Drive I’m going to be donating 20% of all of my sales from now until the end of April. This will be through any of my shops including Etsy knit shop, Etsy card shop, my website and personal side sales. I have marked all of my spring knit jewelry down considerably to help sales for this time of year in my knit shop. Or if you’d prefer you may donate directly to Danielle’s Doll Drive and be sure to ‘like’ their Facebook page if you have an account.
Thank you so much for the love and support, her family truly is grateful!
