Please visit Keri and see how you can help orphans! She is planning a trip next month and is filling her suitcases with donations, instead of her clothes!
Now, I secretly boycott those expensive American Dolls because I get a sick feeling in my stomach every time I see someone with them. Sorry bloggers out there, I'm sure you will stop reading my blog now for sure. I just can't justify that amount of money for a doll that the girl, no matter who she is, will grow out of. I don't care how good the doll is made. I can't justify that an outfit for these dolls costs more than an outfit for myself, or my baby, or any of my children, or my extra tall husband.
Now, Keri is taking American Doll donations to bring these dolls in her suitcase for the 12 girls between the ages of 7 and 10. This, I think is a great idea! A high quality doll for an orphan who probably has never had a doll.
Have I lost you? Is this hypocritical of me?
Sarah (Hawaii Sarah) said something that I must add and totally agree, although there are things I disagree with or do not spend money on that other people do, there are equal things that I do spend money on that they don't. I really don't criticize anyone who does buy these dolls, I just choose to not because of that sick feeling I get.
